Located at the heart of Seoul's downtown, Deoksugung Palace is famous for its elegant stone-wall road. One of five remaining royal palaces in Seoul dating from Korea’s last kingdom, the Joseon Dynasty, it is also the only palace that sits alongside a series of western style buildings, adding uniqueness to the surrounding scenery.

The name "Deoksugung" means the "Palace of Virtue and Longevity". The Palace comprised a mixture of traditional Korean architecture and Western-style neo-classical structures, which provide visitors with a glimpse of how the late Joseon Dynasty received western culture at that time.
