History of Seoul
The history of Seoul can be traced back as far as 18 BC, although humans have occupied the area now known as Seoul since Paleolithic Age. It has been the capital of numerous kingdoms on the Korean Peninsula, it is believed that humans were living in the area, now Seoul along the lower reaches of the Han River during the Paleolithic Age and archaeological research shows that people began to lead settled lives starting in the Neolithic Age. Prehistoric remains that are unearthed in the Amsa Prehistoric Site, located in Amsa-dong, Gangdong District, date back to about 3,000 to 7,000 years ago. With the introduction of bronze ware from about 700 BC, settlements began to spread from the river basin toward inland areas. In 18 BC, the kingdom of Baekje founded its capital city, believed to be inside modern-day Seoul. Baekje subsequently developed from a member state of the Mahan confederacy into one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. There are several city wall. Among them, Pungnap Toseong, an earthen wall in the southeastern part of modern-day Seoul, is believed to be the main Wiryeseong site.
Yet another earthen wall, Mongchon Toseong, located nearby, is dated from the early Baekje era. All of these sites are in the south of the Han River, do not belong to the historic Seoul district, well in the north of the river; as the Three Kingdoms competed for this strategic region of the Korean Peninsula, control passed from Baekje to Goguryeo in 392 and from Goguryeo to the Silla-Baekje alliance in 551. Silla soon gained full control of the city and the peninsula, during the Unified Silla period, Hanyang first referred to a district in the city, the city itself, it was thought that the kingdom that controlled the Han River valley would have strategic control of the whole peninsula, because it was a center of transportation. In 1104, King Sukjong of the Goryeo Dynasty built a palace in Kaesong, referred to as Namgyeong or "Southern Capital". Seoul grew into a full-scale city with political significance during this time. At the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty in 1394, the capital was moved to Seoul known as Hanyang and as Hanseong, where it remained until the fall of the dynasty.
Surrounded by a massive circular wall to provide its citizens security from wild animals such as the tiger as well as thieves and attacks. The city has grown beyond those walls and although the wall no longer stands, the gates remain near the downtown district of Seoul, including most notably Sungnyemun and Heunginjimun but Sukjeongmun and four smaller gates included Changuimun and Hyehwamun. During the Joseon Dynasty, the gates were opened and closed each day, accompanied by the ringing of large bells. A capital prefecture, consisted of inner districts and outer districts; the Jungnangcheon River, the Han River, Mount Bukhan, Hongjecheon formed the administrative prefectural boundary. In the late 19th century, after hundreds of years of isolation, Seoul opened its gates to foreigners and began to modernize. Seoul became the first city in East Asia to have electricity, trolley cars, water and telegraph systems all at the same time. Much of this was due to trade with foreign countries like United States.
For example, the Seoul Electric Company, Seoul Electric Trolley Company, Seoul Fresh Spring Water Company were all joint Korean-American owned enterprises. In 1904, an American by the name of Angus Hamilton visited the city and said, "The streets of Seoul are magnificent, clean, admirably made and well-drained; the narrow, dirty lanes have been widened, gutters have been covered, roadways broadened. Seoul is within measurable distance of becoming the highest, most interesting and cleanest city in the East.” When the Empire of Japan annexed the Korean Empire, it utilized Seoul as the colonial capital. While under colonial rule, the city was called Keijo. Keijo was an urban city that Ryusan-ku. Gyeongseong was part of Gyeonggi Province, instead of being an independent city or prefecture as in Joseon and present days. In 1914, several outer districts of the prefecture were annexed to neighboring Goyang County (now Goyang City, reducing the administrative size of the prefecture. In 1936, Gyeongseong expanded itself as it annexed Yeongdeungpo from Siehung County and recombined some parts of former Gyeongseong districts from Goyang County.
The Government-General Building served as the seat of the colonial government of Colonial Korea but was torn down in 1995. After World War II and Korea's liberation, the city took its present name of Seoul; when the Republic of Korea was declared, the new state adopted the city as its capital. In 1949, Seoul administrative area expanded to Ui-dong to the north, Guro-dong and Daerim-dong to the south, recombining some areas which were annexed from original Seoul to Goyang County in 1914. In 1950

Seoul is ranked as the fourth largest metropolitan economy in the world and is larger than London and Paris. Strategically situated on the Han River, Seoul's history stretches back over two thousand years, when it was founded in 18 BCE by the people of Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea; the city was designated the capital of Korea under the Joseon dynasty. Seoul is surrounded by a mountainous and hilly landscape, with Bukhan Mountain located on the northern edge of the city; as with its long history, the Seoul Capital Area contains five UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Changdeok Palace, Hwaseong Fortress, Jongmyo Shrine and the Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty.

Today, Seoul is considered a leading and rising global city, resulting from the South Korean economic boom - referred to as the Miracle on the Han River - which transformed it into the world's 7th largest metropolitan economy with a GDP of US$635.4 billion in 2014 after Tokyo, New York City and Los Angeles.

During Japan's annexation of Korea, "Hanseong" was renamed "Keijō" by the Imperial authorities to prevent confusion with the hanja'漢', which refers to Han people or the Han dynasty and in Japanese is a term for "China", its current name originated from the Korean word meaning "capital city", believed to have descended from an ancient word, which referred to Gyeongju, the capital of Silla.
Ancient Gyeongju was known in documents by the Chinese-style name Geumseong, but it is unclear whether the native Korean-style name Seorabeol had the same meaning as Geumseong. Unlike most place names in Korea, "Seoul" has no corresponding hanja. On January 18, 2005, the Seoul government changed its official Chinese name from the historic Hancheng, still in common use, to Shou'er. Settlement of the Han River area, where present-day Seoul is located, began around 4000 BCE. Seoul is first recorded as the capital of Baekje in the northeastern Seoul area. There are several city walls remaining in the area. Pungnaptoseong, an earthen wall located southeast Seoul, is believed to have been at the main Wiryeseong site; as the Three Kingdoms competed for this strategic region, control passed from Baekje to Goguryeo in the 5th century, from Goguryeo to Silla in the 6th century. In the 11th century Goryeo, which succeeded Unified Silla, built a summer palace in Seoul, referred to as the "Southern Capital".
It was only from this period. When Joseon replaced Goryeo, the capital was moved to Seoul, where it remained until the fall of the dynasty; the Gyeongbok Palace, built in the 14th century, served as the royal residence until 1592. The other large palace, constructed in 1405, served as the main royal palace from 1611 to 1872. After Joseon changed her name to the Korean Empire in 1897, Hwangseong designated Seoul; the city was surrounded by a massive circular stone wall to provide its citizens security from wild animals and attacks. The city has grown beyond those walls and although the wall no longer stands, the gates remain near the downtown district of Seoul, including most notably Sungnyemun and Heunginjimun (commonly known as Dong
