Seoul city tour

This entertaining and informative tour combines walking experience with transportation by our bus/mini-van. You will see:

  • The geographical centre and the highest point of today's Seoul, N-Tower; the tower has become not only a must-see for every visitor of the Korean capital, but also a kind of romantic mecca for couples; perharps, this is the reason why it is more crowded in romantic evenings than in the prosaic light of the day? For groups 1-3 persons N-Tower is replaced with Bugak Sky Way
  • Next, we are going to see a symbiosis of urban landscape archetecture and nature, the Cheonggyecheon stream; there is hardly any piece in this astonishly naturally looking stream, which was not touched or brought by man - the bed of the stream, the banks, the water itself is broght here by pumps...
  • We are going now to the so-called Souvenir Street, Insadong; there you are able to see the vivid street life of Seoul
  • The tour continues to a royal palace, Here our professional guide will introduce to you the palace culture and architecture, the customs of th e royal family, the symbolic meaning of the material attributes of the palace.
  • And of course, the youth fashion and culture district Myeong-dong, a place of pilgrimage for shoppers from all over the globe, shall be a delightful contribution to the programme.

Attention!

  • Due to traffice jams, there may be minor changes in the programme.
  • The tour finishes at the hotel, where the tour started, unless otherwise specified.

From Bakje Smile to Chosun Fortress: thee epochs

Улыбка Пэкче. Наскальный барельеф в Сосане

Знаменитая "улыбка Пэкче" - характерное дружелюбное и теплое выражение лица будд и бодхисатв, воспроизведенное в статуях государства Пэкче (18 г.д.н.э. - 660 г. н.э.).

Конечно же, репродукции и фотографии - это одно; но познакомиться с улыбкой в оригинале - это другое! Добраться до "улыбки" раньше было достаточно сложно - ведь буддийская троица находится в корейской глубинке - уезд Сосан провинции Южный Чхунчхон, но сейчас сюда проложена асфальтовая дорога; нам предстоит пройти пешком лишь небольшой участок пути... Неподалеку расположены развалины храма, при котором находился эрмитаж (храм-саттелит/жилище отшельника) с Буддой и 2мя бодхисаттвами с нашей улыбкой.

Уникальная техника и артистизм неизвестного мастера позволит нам увидеть открытое, не отягощенное заботами, дружелюбное выражение лица пэкчесцев, живших здесь более 1400 лет тому назад.

Буддийский храм Кэсимса

Кэсинса является храмом-спутником (подчиняется) знаменитому Судокса, в котором сохранилось одно из немногих деревянных сооружений эпохи Корё; но, если Судокса, если не считать главного холла, выглядит в целом достаточно "современно", то в Кэинса сохранился дух старины...

Основан он был в 654 году (14 год правления короля Ыйчжа-вана государства Пэкче) монахом Хегамом (혜감/慧鑑) под именем Кэвонса (кэ - открытие; вон - начало). В 1350 году (2-й год правления короля Корё Чхунсук-вана) переименован в Кэсимса (сим - душа; кэсим - распространение мудрости). Сгорел в 1475 году, но был восстановлен в 1484 году. В 1740 году претерпел очередную реконструкцию и с тех пор не подвергался значительным изменениям. Т.о., перед нами храм с историей, уходящей в глубину веков, и с несколькими зданиями эпохи Раннего Чосона!

Тэунчжон - 1484 г.. Будда и бодхисаттвы в главном холле - Тэучжоне - нестандартные: Амитабха, Кшитигарбха и Авалокитешвара. "Холл найденного ножа [мудрости]", расположенный слева от Тэунчжона - судя по всему, был возведен одновременно с ним; справа располежен павильон Вечной жизни (무량수각); завершает композицию центральной части храма открытый павильон Аняллу - "Спокойствия и отдыха".

Мёнбучжон ("Холл 10 властителей загробного мира") был построен в 1646 г. Т.о., храм состоит из действительно старых зданий. Если хотите окунуться в атмосферу спокойствия и древности - добро пожаловать в Кэсимса. 

Католический мемориал в Хэми

Место мученичской смерти более 1000 корейских католиков в период с 1797 по 1872 гг. Папа Франциск совершил паломничество сюда в 2014 г.

Каменная городская крепость Хэми Ыпсон

Каменная крепость, построенная в период с 1417 по 1421 гг.  Из корейских крепостей считается наиболее полно сохранившейся городской крепостью эпохи Чосон.Здесь располагался командный пункт армии провинции Чхунчхон. Основное назначение крепости - противостоять набегам пиратов из Японии. В течение 10 месяцев адмирал Ли Сунсин служил здесь в 1578 году.

Changdeokgung Palace (walking)

"Palace of prosperous virtue" (1405-1412). In this very palace, the Korean kings - wangs - resided mostly during the 500 years (1392-1910) of Joseon dynasty history.

Destroyed in the 1592-1598 (Imjin War)

Restored in 1609

From 1623 to 1868 it was the official residence of the Korean kings. Since 1997, it is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The highlight of the palace is the so-called "Secret Garden" pivon (비원), or huvon ("back garden") 후원, recognized as a model of classical Korean garden and landscape design (not included in this excursion).

11:00
Korea Temple Food master class

Korean temple (Buddhist) cuisine.

The true value of temple food is revealed in the understanding of the Buddhist food culture and the philosophical foundations of the teaching. Historically, temple food is food for the following monks' paths; However, in the modern world, it is becoming available for laymen and foreign guests of Korea. Understanding the purpose of cooking and eating from the perspective of a Buddhist believer, we, nevertheless, can relate to this peculiar cuisine in terms of proper and harmonious nutrition, diet and, not surprisingly, very tasty food.

We will get acquainted with the recipe and create, under the watchful guidance of a monk teacher or a nun, one of the traditional Buddhist dishes, which will become our lunch today!
