Guri is a city in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. It is located immediately to the east of Seoul, in the heart of the Capital Metropolitan Area.
The Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty (dong-gu-reung) are located in the city. The low mountain of Achasan is also located here, site of the Baekje-era Acha Mountain Fortress and numerous hiking trails. It also has pleasant walking paths along Wang-suk-cheon, a small creek separating Guri from Namyangju. The traditional town market in Toldari (Guris downtown around what used to be a "stone bridge") provides a cheap alternative to department stores.
Guri first became a separate city in 1986. Previously, it had been considered part of Yangju from antiquity until 1980, and part of Namyangju from 1980 to 1986. The name "Guri" was first used in 1914, at which time it was a myeon in Yangju. Guri is connected to Seoul via a commuter railway (Jungang Line), as well as numerous city transit and intercity buses.
It lies east-northern area of Gyeonggi province. There is Mt.Acha to the west and Namyanju city to east.
The whole area is 33.29?. In fact, Guri used to be bigger but some of the townships were incorporated into Seoul and other cities surrounding Guri.Guri Wikipedia (,)http://www.kosovoguide.com/repository/images/168/DSC03796_4190_thmb4.JPG(,)http://www.kosovoguide.com/repository/images/168/DSC03789_4188_thmb4.JPG(,)http://www.kosovoguide.com/repository/images/168/DSC03739_4178_thmb4.JPG(,)http://www.kosovoguide.com/repository/images/168/DSC03744_4176_thmb4.JPG(,)http://static.panoramio.com/photos/large/92751780.jpg(,)http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/07/9e/f7/8e/restaurant.jpg(,)http://www.thewoodlandstx.com/restaurants/restaurantphotos/788599_web-7369.jpg(,)http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/06/f2/4b/9b/inside2.jpg(,)http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/05/e4/fb/f4/sushi-way-guri.jpg(,)http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/04/01/ba/fb/inside-2.jpg(,)http://media-cdn.tripadvisor.com/media/photo-s/05/45/7b/73/dunkin-donut-guri-cinema.jpg(,)http://images.everytrail.com/pics/fullsize/4709395-pic_35.jpg(,)http://shkoder.net/images/shkodra/guri_i_kuq.jpg
