Impressive memorial. Worth the D-tour. But the park is also very beautiful and tranquil. Do not miss the memorial for the unknown soldier.

The UN Cemetery is just too difficult to describe. It is simply powerful. The respect with which S Korea is honoring the dead who came from around the world to help the country in its hour of need is an amazing testament. There is nothing...More

It’s real history with real names and real people. If you are one of those United Nations countries who helped Korea on 1950, you have to visit this place, it’s indeed important. All the names, places, left overs etc all are real history with evidences.
