This place has a lot of history!
I went here a few weeks ago with bunch of my mates and friends so I decided to go there again and explore it myself! Really touching and historic
Throughout the 20th century, the buildings and public spaces of Scheyville played host to many different people, groups and projects: a socialist labour settlement; the Dreadnought Trust’s training scheme for young British men; and farm training for Australian city boys. Scheyville even functioned for a time as a military camp. Scheyville Camp precinct has a strong historical value, but also a strong emotional one. Residents came to the site during times of great change in their lives, as Dreadnought boys, post-World War II migrants, or National Service Officers during the Vietnam War. The site is a legacy to these people.
Gyeongbokgung Palace was the first and largest of the royal palaces built during the Joseon Dynasty. Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace was located at the heart of newly appointed capital of Seoul (then known as Hanyang) and represented the sovereignty of the Joseon Dynasty. The largest of the Five Grand Palaces (the others being Gyeonghuigung Palace, Deoksugung Palace, Changgyeonggung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace), Gyeongbokgung served as the main palace of the Joseon Dynasty.
The Korean government has invested much time and effort into rebuilding, restoring, and maintaining the palace for future generations. These efforts include work to rebuild and restore the buildings that were destroyed during the Japanese occupation. Visitors to Gyeongbokgung can also visit the National Palace Museum of Korea and the National Folk Museum of Korea as they are located on the palace grounds.

Sunset at Haraldshaugen monument. ⬇️
Riksmonumentet Haraldshaugen, lokalt også kjent som Haraldsstøtten, er et monument til minne om Harald Hårfagres samling av Norge i 872. Støtten ble avduket i 1872 i forbindelse med tusenårsjubileet for slaget i Hafrsfjord, der Norge ifølge sagaen ble samlet til ett rike. Monumentet står på Gard like nord for bykjernen i Haugesund på stedet der Harald Hårfagre sies å ha blitt gravlagt.
Monumentet er tegnet av arkitekt Christian Christie, som en stor gravhaug omgitt av en granittmur med 29 bautasteiner, en fra hver av de gamle norske fylkene.
