With a population of 2.5 million, this city is the fourth largest city in South Korea and is a very popular destination for independent travelers. The reason for this is that there is not only a lot of history to discover in this city, but also a lot of culture. Located on the Nakdong River and at an altitude of 883.7 meters, the city is surrounded by mountain ranges. The region is known as a fruit-growing area and as the seat of many well-known and large South Korean companies. The city’s transport connections to the capital of South Korea and the other cities are therefore ideal.
