I visited on Saturday and was happily surprised how beautiful, serene and immaculately clean is the cemetery. The graves arranged symmetrically, are well kept. I went to see the blossoms at the cemetery as I found out it is a popular place to see the...More

Huge cemetery and war memorial in a busy part of Seoul buffered by woodland on most sides that allow for a beautiful and sobering walk. War relics and interpretative materials are available in buildings scattered about the acreage while there are many small monuments and...More

I recently visited the Seoul National Cemetery with friends during the peak cherry blossom bloom time in the city. We found it by searching for the best places to see cherry blossoms in Seoul and it didn't disappoint! The blooms were absolutely stunning in/around the...More

A very calm and impressive area. It is a huge cemetery that spreads out basically still in the middle of Seoul. It reminds one of the sacrifices that are necessary for a nation and its people to be free. I really liked the fact that...More

It is the National Cemetery, a huge plot of land in the middle of the city, very well kept. An impressive memorial to unknown & missing soldiers, along with Arlington Cemetery-like graves. But this cemetery also includes a museum, photo exhibits, snack bar, convenience store,...More

I have lived in Korea for 12 years (almost 11 in Seoul) but had never been here before. Koreans don't consider cemeteries as a place to sightsee and I've never suggested to my non-Korean friends to check this place out. I had some free time...More

The National Cemetery has a hauntingly beautiful air to it that instantly makes you feel more humbled and calm. A great place for a stroll especially during spring and autumn when the park foliage have much more color to them.

Seoul National Cemetery is one of the biggest cemeteries I've had the opportunity to visit, and despite having been built a long time ago, it feels brand new, with great cleaning/gardening work done year round. The amount of tombs and graveyard is absolutely insane, and...More

We visited here totally on a whim en route to Bongeunsa, and it was an unexpectedly fascinating and sobering experience. The divisive effects of the Korean War can be felt everywhere in Seoul, and nowhere more keenly than here. The graves stretch forever up onto...More
