Meet the 2,000-year history of Seoul

  • Every October, Songpa-gu holds the Hanseong Baekje Cultural Festival, which is the largest historical and cultural festival in the region. It reproduces the golden age of Hanseong Baekje―the earlier 500 years of the Baekje era, some 2,000 years back―during which resplendent culture and art bloomed. The festival is Seoul's only "excellent culture and tourism festival" selected by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in 2008. During the festival, various events and programs including opening and closing ceremonies, congratulatory performances, fireworks, the Baekje Culture Experiential Village, traditional game experiential activities, the Baekje Royal Tomb Festival, and torch-lighting ceremony operate along with a parade taking place along Wiryeseong-daero. In addition, a traditional and international food market is opened at festival venues, providing the audience the chance to sample exotic foods from various countries as well as traditional Korean foods.
