Once more with photos -- Day 10 Gyeongbokgung Palace, Seoul

And now we come to the final day of the holiday and the visit to the Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul. It's a splendid historical site, but most of the buildings are reconstructions rather than the originals.

However, it is most definitely impressive and the weather obliged and gave us the occasional glimpse of blue sky.

As you can see, the palace is very popular with tourists, both native Koreans and other nationalities.

The old and the new, side by side.
