About This Book

Gyeongju is often called a 'museum without walls'.
Not only are relics scattered evenly over the entire city, they can be easily found in whatever area you dig.
There is probably no other city or region in Korea in which cultural properties are so heavily concentrated;
there are 33 National Treasures, the most important type of relic, as well as 83 Treasures.
There are also 77 preserved historic sites, over 316 designated cultural properties and hundreds of old tombs.
