The Seoul National Cemetery is where individuals who dedicated their lives for the country to make it what it is today are buried, and a memorial site for patriots and veterans visited by bereaved families and others who come to pay their respect. The Seoul National Cemetery is one of Seoul’s many beautiful sites for seeing cherry blossoms with a parade of spring flowers that bloom every spring. Along the main path from the entrance to the Memorial Tower are weeping cherry trees that paint a beautiful view of cherry blossoms. Hyeonchungcheon-gil is also lined with forsythias, which makes it a beloved location for comfort and rest with a graceful scenery. Groves of trees including pine trees, Korean nut pine trees, cherry trees and ginkgo trees are found throughout the cemetery, along with a well-preserved ecosystem that is inhabited by about twenty-six species of birds.
