Located in the middle of Korea, Kaesong was the capital of Koryo, first unified state of Korea in the midde ages, existed for about 500 years.
Now it sits on the Military Demarcation Line, implying tragic division of the nation. It is also the home of Koryo Insam (ginseng).
Preserved here are many historical remains and relics of Koryo dynasty. A number of historical sites in Kaesong, DPRK, were named UNESCO World Heritage sites in the 37th session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee held in June 2013 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
