Seoul
  • Seoul has been the capital of South Korea since the creation of the republic in 1948, the historic capital of Korea for more than 600 years and is the most populated city in the Korean peninsula. It forms its own administrative unit in the Korean state.
  • It is located to the northeast of the country some 50 kilometers from the demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas. The Han River runs through the city.
  • Today, Seoul is a global city, the result of an economic boom known as the Miracle on the Han River, which transformed the ashes of the Korean War bombings into the fourth largest metropolitan economy in the world with a GDP of 773.9 billion US dollars, behind only Tokyo, New York, and Los Angeles.
  • With approximately ten million inhabitants in the city itself, the metropolitan area has a total of 24.5 million, including the port of Incon and the province of Gyeonggi, with which it forms the second biggest metropolitan area in the world, behind Tokyo, and the fifth biggest city in the world after Tokyo, Mexico City, New York, and Mumbai.
  • In 2012, the United Nations ranked Seoul above New York, London, and Melbourne for quality of life, but below Tokyo and Paris.
