Seoul South Korea

Seoul (서울) is the capital of South Korea. With almost 10 million inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in the world.

Seoul is subdivided into 25 districts, which were transformed from pure administrative units into municipal districts in 1988. Since 1995 each of these districts has its own elected mayor, elected by the people, is relatively autonomous and has partly developed autonomous, economically significant city centers. The 25 districts (gu) are divided into 522 city districts (dong) and these are divided into 13787 tong and 102796 ban.

History: The Changdeokgung Palace was built in 1405, the fifth year of the reign of King Taejong as the second palace after the main palace Gyeongbokgung of the Joseon dynasty. The palaces in Seoul fell victim to the Imjin invasion by the Japanese; Changdeokgung was rebuilt immediately after King Gwanghaegung (1608 - 1623) as the main palace, taking into account the natural events such as mountains and geographic location.

Food: Seoul is littered with smaller and larger restaurants, which offer predominantly country-style cuisine. Most restaurants have specialized in a kind of meal; In a pub there are e.g. Only noodle dishes, in another stew and in the next grilled etc. For voice problems it is very helpful, that the different offered dishes in large photos, mostly directly with price indication are presented. So you can choose the right place and the appropriate food before entering. Free water is provided for each meal. It is not necessarily expected that you can order other drinks with your food.

Needing to go for Central Europe - but absolutely recommendable - are certainly the mobile tent restaurants. They are always in the same place, but only in the evening. Do not expect anyone to speak English, but you can eat the fish and the sea animals offered there comfortably. You can communicate with the individual dishes or ask in the tent whether one of the guests can help.
