City Essay

It’s the summer vacation season. With the COVID-19 pandemic still holding us back, we chose to listen to rich stories of historic cities. Experts of St. Petersburg, Buyeo and Hanoi shared their knowledge. Youn Jinhi, a long-time translator of Russian literature, traces footsteps of the great Russian writer Leo Tolstoy in Moscow. Buyeo was the last capital of Baekje, and Lee Neogg, former director of the Buyeo National Museum, extols virtues of Baekje’s proud culture. Jeon Haein, a travel writer based in Hanoi, takes a closer look at Vietnam’s 53 ethnic minorities, who make up 15 percent of the country’s population. Hopefully, these stories will enrich our travel experiences, once we are able to take trips again.
