A Review about Holiday in Seoul (South Korea)

Seoul is a city with 600 years of stories and now metropolis… to Write something new and unusual is quite difficult or almost impossible. Already a lot of different stories and novels written about him.

The very pronunciation of the name of the capital of South Korea in Russian sounds not correct to Seoul. Not just because right was previously read by Latin transcription. It is more correct to call the “Soul”, which in Korean stands for the capital.

Seoul is the largest city in the country, here are the most headquarters of international companies and financial companies. The city is truly unique, so get on in it ancient traditions and modern values.

To get to the city will not make special work. As each day of summer flights of “Aeroflot” and “Korea Air”. The airport though is in the neighboring city of Incheon(Incheon international airport ), but it does not matter, because from there you can take bus, taxi or train ride A REX.

In South Korea, the time from the beginning of the XVII century until the 1860s, called the period of “transition to a society of the new time”. Meanwhile, the popular reference edition of the mid-1990s, it belongs still to the period of the middle ages. A similar North Korea and the approach to the periodization of the new history of Korea: from one side, until the mid-nineteenth century historians North Korea date from the middle ages, and on the other they celebrate in Korea in XVII-XVIII centuries, the development of commodity-money relations and the emergence of capitalism.

Relative to the upper turn of the new history of Korea in world historiography has been controversial. In the Russian historical science is still the modern history of Korea starting Continue reading
