The Korean War truly is the forgotten war, but the UN Cemetery makes sure that nobody will ever forget the people that died during the war. The grounds are beautiful and I found it to be a very moving experience. From the personal stories to the memorials that each nation has left for their fallen to the statues, it was... More

Spend a few hours here and you will come away a different person. A visit on your own brochure. Start with the video in the visitor's center and then the museum. And, then off to the beautiful and very moving cemetery. Take your time and really take in the size and cleanliness of the entire grounds. A tribute to all... More

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
