Seoul, South Korea.

Seoul is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea, with more than 10,01 million people (about a quarter of the total national population). Seoul has been the capital of Korea for about 600 years since the time of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).

The Han River divides it in two parts: the northern part (Gangbuk) of the city is a focal point for culture and history, southern part (Gangnam) is well known for its business district. Seoul is a city of contrasts, from ancient palaces with centuries of history to skyscrapers of steel and glass. Seoul is a place where the old and new exist in harmony.

Anyway Seoul can be a very noisy place to live, people are constantly on the streets and police sirens, ambulances, fire trucks… can be heard the 24h of the day. And don’t miss to say that Seoul has the highest pollution levels in the country.
