For nearly 1,000 years, from 57 B.C. to 935 A.D., Kyongju was the capital of the Shilla kingdom and flourished as a center of sophisticated culture and government. It is said that the city is like an open-air museum. In the center of the city, the Tumulus Park houses some 20 large and small tombs from the Shilla Dynasty.
