One-time capital of the Baekje Kingdom, Gongju's illustrious past has been revived since the discovery of the undisturbed royal tomb of the 25th monarch of the dynasty here. This archaeological treasure, boasting some 3 000 artefacts, is reason enough for most visitors to come to the city, which today peacefully straddles the Geum River.
