Seoul today
With almost 11 million people, Seoul is the largest city of the Republic of Korea and is also the economic, political and cultural hub of the country. Though it had a bit of a reputation for pollution, strict emission laws have brought that into control.  With a superb subway system, residents and tourists can easily traverse the city efficiently and without much hassle.

Seoul back then
The history of the city dates back as far as 18BC, when it was established as a small settlement. The Wiryeseong site found inside the boundaries of modern day Seoul hints that it was once the capital of Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. After that, it is believed that Seoul also became the capital of the Joseon Dynasty, which is also one of the world's longest running monarchies, lasting for almost 5 centuries. It was the last royal and imperial dynasty of Korean history and was declared the Korean Empire in 1897. The dynasty ended in 1910 when the Japanese annexed the land.
