Korean War Memorial, Seoul, South Korea

     One of the most vivid impressions, which expect a foreigner in Seoul - visit the Museum of War, which is dedicated to the 1950-1953 Korean War. This is one of the world's largest museums devoted to military action. At the entrance to the museum is located exposition of military equipment that was used during the Korean War. The museum occupies the 8 rooms in which the samples were exposed to weapons and military equipment of past wars and modern weapons and havy weapons sinse World War II and the Vietnam campaign.

In my opinion, the most interesting part of the exhibition of this museum – it’s a military vehicle mid XX century, which is exhibited in the museum courtyard. There you will be photographed next to the Soviet T-34 tank, to see the real "Katyusha" (rocket artillery machine in the USSR) or photographed in the cockpit of the American heavy bomber B-52. I also remember the speedboat - a tin box with a fan in the stern, which had very low rainfall and lets you quickly move through the swamps and shallow water.

Periodically at the museum you can see Korean soldiers who work out gun techniques, marching and generally behave as Honor Guard. Watching them very interesting, especially because South Korea is always on the brink of war, and here the army spent a lot of money. By the way, the Korean soldiers react normally to the camera – thanks to long-standing presence of Americans in this region.

Getting there: if your hotel is nearby and you can walk - perfect. If not, ask the concierge of your hotel to explain to the taxi driver where to go because the driver can’t understand you even if you’ll start talking to him in Korean.
