Greetings from Mayor

Mayor of Gyeongju-si Baek Sang Seung

Warm greetings!
Welcome to the website of Gyeongju city.

    Gyeongju is going through enormous changes and facing unprecedented challenges. Yet, these challenges give us opportunities to restore the city’s long-lost glory as well. To this end, I will give top priority to communicating with the citizens, the genuine owners of the city, while having a clear understanding of the philosophy, history, and vision for the future of Gyeongju. The new Gyeongju will be a modern city that incorporates its tradition. It will be a creative and clean city that meets everyone's expectations! By revitalizing its culture and arts and by integrating a creative strategy with practical administrative policies, we will make Gyeongju a dynamic tourist city.
