Korea’s four main palaces of Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace, Deoksugung Palace and Changgyeonggung Palace, along with Jongmyo Shrine and various Joseon royal tombs will be hosting events in correlation with the blooming of spring flowers.
This year, spring blossoms are expected to arrive one to four days earlier than the average year. These cultural heritages will be beautiful with blossoms from April until late May, providing the perfect opportunity to enjoy the spring season and Korea’s beautiful traditional architecture.
In addition to the spring flowers, visitors to the royal palaces can enjoy traditional activities, such as Spring Music Concert at Deoksugung Palace, and a royal table food experience at Gyeongbokgung Palace, with the chance to not only try royal foods from the royal kitchen, but also to make the food oneself.
