Historical Trails along the Palace Walls
Yulgok-ro, which used to cross the foot of Eungbongsan Mountain that would pass Changdeokgung Palace and Changgyeonggung Palace, leading to the Jongmyo Shrine, was revived as a royal culture trail after 90 years. Walk along the Seosulla-gil and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere downtown. Don't miss the Ikseon-dong Hanok Street, which is popular among younger crowds.
Spanning the distance between between Donhwamun Gate (the main gate of Changdeokgung Palace) to Toegye-ro, Donhwamun-ro was the civic center of Changdeokgung Palace, the main palace of Joseon. Learn the history of the site while walking along the "royal progress" road.
The road built to disconnect the branch of Eungbongsan Mountain, connecting Changdeokgung Palace, Changgyeonggung Palace, and Jongmyo Shrine during the Japanese occupation, was transformed into a great walking trails. Let’s walk along the historical walls of the palace.
"Sulla" refers to a night patrol preventing theft and fire during the Joseon Dynasty.
