Korean cultural properties as a mirror of time attract many world citizens. Korean cultural heritage calmly stands the abrasion of time, but a mirror of the Korea's past, present and future. Over time, the line, color and shape of the Korean landscape has surpassed the regional limits of the Korean peninsula. There are numerous World Heritage properties in Korea. They include Changdeokgung Palace, Hwaseong Fortress, Seokguram Grotto, Bulguksa Temple, Haeinsa Temple Janggyeong Panjeon Hall, Dolmen Sites and Gyeongju Historic Area. Most recently, Royal tombs of Joseon Dynasty and historical villages of Hahoe and Yangdong have been added to the list. This book is a stunning set of pictures that highlights Korea's world heritage properties.

한국의 문화 유산은 세계인을 매혹시키기에 충분하다. 오랜 세월, 묵묵히 세파를 견디어 온 한국의 문화 유산은 한국의 과거와 현재 그리고 미래를 들여다보는 거울이 된다. 한국의 수려한 자연 경관을 이루는 선, 색, 모양 등은 한반도의 지리적 한계를 뛰어 넘어왔다.
한국에는 세계 유산으로 등재된 문화유산이 많다. 창덕궁, 화성, 석굴암, 불국사, 해인사 장경판전, 고인돌 유적, 경주 등이 있으며, 가장 최근에는 조선의 왕릉과 역사마을 하회와 양동이 추가로 등재되었다. 이 책은 한국의 세계 유산에 대해 집중적으로 소개하는 화보집이다.
