Ulsan will be your gateway to the former capital of the Silla dynasty, Gyeongju, and its two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, precious vestiges of the Korean kingdom of old. You will discover the Seokguram Grotto, one of the most beautiful sanctuaries dedicated to Buddha, built in the 8th century on the slopes of Mount Toham. Surrounded by deities, the statue of Buddha contemplates the hills and the horizon beyond the Sea of Japan. The sculpture has retained its original appearance and this gives the place real spiritual value. You will visit the Bulguksa Temple, a World Heritage treasure and one of the most beautiful vestiges of Gyeongyu’s golden age, a perfect demonstration of the skill of Korean architects at the time of the old kingdom.
