Seoul is located in the northwest corner of South Korea, and the Han River winds through the city, splitting it in two. It is an intriguing city, transforming itself from the Yi Dynasty capital of the Hermit Kingdom, to a major mover and shaker on the international scene, especially in the fields of commerce and sports. Despite the modern high-rises and freeways, the cityscape retains pockets of centuries-old temples, palaces, pagodas, and gardens.
