A beautiful place and a wonderful tribute to those who fought and gave their lives. You can't leave this park without getting a grasp of how massive the loss of human life was. It is also one of the only flat green spaces in the city of Busan.

Serene cemetary, very well maintained. The old guys at the exposition rooms are great. One VERY sad and annoying aspect - in a movie about the Korean war both the Russian AND the Americans were labelled occupying forces. Damned, the Americans lost 50.000+ soldiers to liberate the South from its Northern "brothers". This should he changed!!

The UN Memorial Cemetery is designed beautifully and looked after immaculately. It is a beautiful tribute to the fallen and I would recommend visiting if you are in the area.

The Memorial Cemetery and the UN Peace Park are definitely worth a visit. It does not take long to get there from Busan. Take Metro Line 2, get off at Kyungsung Univ. Pukyong National Univ. Station, once at the street level find Yongso-ro and walk South on this street. Recognizing the street should be easy, it runs perpendicular to the... More

Beautiful view, but it is not close to metro station at all. Better check the map and the weather before you go. The garden view is stunning.

You have to give the South Koreans an A+ for their class in first donating this huge plot of land in the middle of their huge city and then working with the UN to create a beautiful tribute to the soldiers from over twenty countries who fought with the South Koreans to ensure their freedom.

Not a traditional tourist destination, but one not to be missed for a reflective experience. About a 20 minute walk from the nearest metro station, next to the Busan Cultural Centre. The volunteers who are present to explain the photograph display add to the experience. As a UK National, the graves of so many fallen service men was humbling.

This memorial park is more than just a cemetary but also a place of education and reflection. It is of course the final repose of soldiers from 11 nations that supported the south during the war. It is also unique as it is the only UN cemetary in the world. You are asked to be quiet and respectful on entry... More
