A calm and respectful acknowledgement of a terrible time in Korean history. Very well maintained and the chapel has an brief history of this civil war, in English.

I visited the UN Cemetery on 7 October 2015. The tour started with a short informative film on the Korean War. It outlined all the actions that caused the United Nations to participate in this conflict. The grounds house a small museum with maps and photographs of the countries and soldiers who were there. The memorial gardens are immaculately kept... More

Went here last week and had a very touching and moving visit. The video presentation at the beginning tells you all about the history of the place and then you are free to walk around the grounds. The grounds are very pretty and peaceful which really adds to the overall feeling of the place. There are just rows and rows... More

A memorial in the honour of United Nations soldiers from over 15 countries who fought for Korean War earlier. A nicely developed and well maintained garden with blossoming flowers. The entire aura is soothening and consoling. A tourist attraction with an entry ticket. A number of festivals are held each year

What a beautiful peaceful place, an oasis of greenery. The gratitude of South Korea to the American/British/South African etc soldiers who helped defend South Korea is most evident. The flag lowering ceremony in the evening with "Taps" playing is beyond moving.

The cemetery honors all the countries that came to the aid of South Korea during the war. It is a beautiful memorial that brought tears to my eyes. There is an honor guard at the entrance and a small chapel like room that shows an 8 minute film of the conflict. It is amazing to me that the world came... More

Not a whole lot to say -- tens of thousands of foreign troops fought and died during the Korean War and the UN Cemetary is a fitting memorial to their sacrifice. Plan on spending at least an hour here -- it's quite large but very peaceful and worth the trip.

This was my first memorial cemetery. It is unbelievably well taken care of! It's a beautiful place, and the murals, info centers, and placards allow you to learn so much there. I think it's definitely worth an afternoon visit.

such a beautiful cemetery honoring all who fought in the Korean war. as the daughter and wife of a veteran its special to me to see other nations honoring those who have fallen not for their country but for the freedoms of others. Especially loved seeing the guards take down the flag at sundown.
