The World Cup Parks which were created in memory of the 17th FIFA World Cup 2002 were opened on 1 May 2002. The chosen location was Nanjido A landfill site where 92 million tons of garbage had been buried since 1978. The parks could only be opened after more than 6 years of work (garbage treatment, site equipment, clearing, construction of foundations. ..). They are all close to the World Cup stadium.
The Sky Park: This park is the one that is the highest. A hill where heaps of garbage had been piled up, was transformed into a hill of greenery with 22 belvederees enjoying a beautiful view of Seoul, Namsan and Bukhansan. Five wind turbines were built to supply the park and the park’s maintenance office with electricity.

The National Folk Museum of Korea is a museum located in the Gyeongbok Palace in Seoul, South Korea.
This museum is divided into three spaces. The “Lobby of the Korean Lifestyle” presents the cultural characteristics of prehistory to the Joseon period. The “Hall of the Koreans at work” presents tools for agriculture, hunting and fishing as well as clothing and homes. The “hall of the cycle of Korean life” shows the different stages of life, birth, marriage and death. The exhibition continues outside with totems, dol hareubangs, granaries and windmills.
In the Buddhist religion, the lantern that illuminates the darkness is a metaphor of wisdom that illuminates the world. Thus, the lighting of the lotus lanterns is a very important ceremony in order to express its respect for the Buddha. These practices date from the Goryeo and Joseon dynasties, whose lantern ceremonies and lantern sets have been transmitted to us in various forms.
Mount Achasan is 287 km high and stretches from Seoul to the town of Guri. Its gentle slopes make it a popular hiking site for the inhabitants of Guri and the local residents. After a 40-minute walk, walkers arrive in sight of the Han River and Seoul. At the time of the Joseon Dynasty, the mountains now known as Mount Bonghwa, Manguri Cemetery and Mount Yongma were part of Mount Achasan.
