An important visit while in Busan. The visiting center at the entry offers a good and impressive introduction with many historical information on the Korea war. The cemetery is beautifully laid out and very neatly cured. Definitely worth the visit.

The place is a must visit location. 14 countries assisted South Korea during the Korean war and many soldiers of these countries were martyred. This is the only UN cemetery.

This was part of my tour and it was beautiful, yet sobering. Amazing how many names are etched on the wall. The grounds are beautiful. There is a short video that is shown (English or Korean) that was very touching.
