The Capital of the Baekje Kingdom

Gongju was the capital of the Baekje kingdom from 475 to 538. There are more than a dozen royal tombs here, including the tomb of King Muryeong.

Gongju's more recent claim to fame is that it is the hometown of Park Se-ri, the first of the Korean women golfers to find international success. There is already a statue of her in front of the high school she attended.
