Seoul’s Historic Walks
- About the Book
In this handy guidebook based on the tours offered by the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture, Korean traditional architecture expert Cho In-souk and magazine editor Robert Koehler share their appreciation of architecture and love for Seoul’s history as they take you through some of Seoul’s lesser-known historic sites and give visitors a better understanding of Seoul’s development from medieval walled city to modern metropolis. Seoul is a fascinating city where old and new often coexist in jarring contrast. The best way to explore it, however, is to stretch your legs and walk, and “Seoul’s Historic Walks” will show you where to go.
