Communication Card
99, Yulgok-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul

Known for its seamless integration with its surroundings, the construction of Changdeokgung Palace began in 1405 in order to avert a political calamity. All of the elements in the palatial complex, even the placement of its trees, ponds and gardens, were arranged harmoniously in relation to the natural surroundings and topography of the site instead of adhering to any preconceived shapes or lines. Located north of the palace is the Huwon Secret Garden, which takes up 60% of the entire complex in scale and features structures in tune with nature.
