A beautiful country located on the Korean Peninsula in Northeast Asia, often referred to as the “Land of the Morning Calm”; A country surrounded by sea on three sides, while boasting green forests, open fields as well as meandering rivers;
A place that is alive with a rich tradition and culture that spans 5,000 years of history; An attractive country of changing sceneries and foods in each distinctive season of spring, summer, fall and winter; and A nation that produced the “Miracle of the Han River", a stunning economic and social transformation forged by its people out of the ashes of the Korean War in 1950 and the subsequent division of territory.
This is Korea. Welcome to the country!
Inheriting the tradition of ancient nation Gaya and Silla, Busan embodies the spirit of the Nakdonggang River and the wits of Mt. Geumjeongsan. It is the city of liberty that upheld the self-respect of the people and opened a new chapter in the history of democracy, as well as being the gateway city that connects Eurasia and the Pacific, embracing and blending the cultures of the continent and ocean.
Busan is being renewed day by day as the central axis of Northeast Asia's economic bloc, as the hub of the film and visual industry, and as the city of the ocean, logistics and finance. For this reason, commentators have named the astonishing changes in Busan as "a quiet revolution."
