If you ask which city is the most Korean place in Korea, I will say Andong. Andong is not only the capital of Gyeongsangbuk-do, but also the spiritual culture capital of Korea. It still maintains many aspects of the traditional culture of Korea throughout the past 2000 years. It is also the treasure house of the cultural heritages of Korea, as it keeps over 280 cultural assets. because of its unique charm, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain visited Andong in 1999.
Among the cultural assets, the most famous are these 4 national treasures (Hahoe Mask, Seven-story Brick Pagoda, Bongjeongsa Temple and the Jingbirok) and 1 UNESCO World Heritage Site (Andong Hahoe Folk Village). As the cradle of Confucianism, Andong has several Confucian academies, like Byeongsanseowon Confucian Academy and Dosanseowon Confucian Academy. Besides of historic sites, Andong Mask Dance Festival is held in Andong in October annually. The event shows the Korean Mask Dance, as well as other various traditional dances of other countries in the world.
As Andong is easily accessible from Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Daejeon, and other cities, it has become a hot tour destination. Don’t forget the famous local foods in Andong! The most famous ones are Andong jjimdak (Andong-style chicken and cellophane noodles), Andong soju (a rice wine), Andong sikhye (a punch), Geonjin guksu (a noodle dish), grilled salted mackerel, etc. So never miss the yummy food during your visit to Andong.
