    As the fifth largest city in the world, the Seoul Metropolitan area has a population of almost 11 million and is the center for Korean economy, finance, arts and culture. It is both the capital and the heart of the Republic of Korea. It was a seat of government in the Paekche Kingdom more than 1,500 years ago, but the city's true birth occurred in 1394, when it became the capital during the Choson Dynasty (1392-1910). Visitors to modern Seoul can still experience the ancient Orient – old palaces, the imposing city gates and the serene temples in the midst of the skyscrapers and a thriving international community. It is quite amazing that during the Korean War, forty plus years ago, Seoul was almost totally destroyed and today it is one of the major cities in Asia and a world class financial center.
