|Shilla Millennium Park (신라밀레니엄파크)|
Shilla Millennium Park is a theme park integrating both education and entertainment about the history and culture of the Shilla Period.
Focusing on the Shilla Period (57 B.C.-935 A.D.), the park reproduces Shilla architecture and a village of aristocrats, tells children fun stories about the period, and offers symbolic architecture such as Emile Tower and Seokbinggo. Visitors are also invited to participate in things such as the Craft Clinic.
Visitors can enjoy an outdoor set in which the famous Korean show Queen Seondeok was filmed. In addition, the park houses Lagung, the first hanok (traditional Korean house) hotel in Korea. It became famous when it appeared as Yoon Ji-hoo’s home in the Korean soap opera, “Boys over Flowers.” The hotel is divided into Sweet Hanok and Royal Sweet Hanok. Right inside the hotel is an outdoor open bath offering comfort and rest to visitors (for more information, call +82-54-778-2100 or visit its website).
