The five palaces of Seoul are royal palaces of the Joseon Dynasty and symbols of Korea’s culture and history. Each palace has its unique charms: Gyeongbokgung Palace, the royal residence; Changdeokgung Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site inscribed in 1997 with remarkable beauty; Deoksugung Palace, a combination of Korean aesthetics and Western architecture; Changgyeonggung Palace, now restored from the damages caused by Japanese occupation; and Gyeonghuigung Palace, humble and simple.

Cheong Wa Dae - Blue House

Located with Bugaksan Mountain in the background, Cheong Wa Dae (or Blue House) is the official office and residence for Korean Presidents from 1948 to 2022. Since the establishment of the Republic of Korea in 1948, it has accommodated President Syngman Rhee to President Moon Jae-in.

On 10 May 2022, following the relocation of the presidential office to the defence ministry building in Yongsan District, Cheong Wa Dae was opened to the public for the first time in 74 years, on the day of inauguration of President Yoon Suk-yeol.
