Two of Seoul's historic palaces will be open to the public until 10 p.m. next month as part of an annual event encouraging people to appreciate the city's heritage.
The Cultural Heritage Administration on Wednesday said Changgyeong Palace will open late from Oct. 1 to 13 with the exception of the 7th, and Gyeongbok Palace from Oct. 16 to 28, except for the 22nd.
Since 2010, the two palaces have been open to the public at night for five days in spring and fall without limits, but now a cap has been introduced to make the experience pleasanter for visitors.
The maximum number of people who can enter Changgyeong Palace for a late-night opening will be 1,700, and for Gyeongbok Palace 1,500.
For Changgyeong Palace, 1,100 tickets will be sold online in advance and 600 on the spot, and for Gyeongbok Palace 1,000 online and 500 on the spot.
Last admission is at 9 p.m.
