There are quite a few Confucian schools in the city of Andong, because this is the place where the religion was born. This region is still known as one of the most traditionalist of the country, where the values of Confucius are the most respected. The Confucian School of Byeongsan, which is very highly regarded and located in the middle of a beautiful mountain landscape, is a very worthwhile visit in my opinion.
The traditional village of Hahoe, easily accessible by bus from Andong, will enable you to discover a little more of the country's culture during your trip to Korea.
One of the most famous festivals of the city is the Mask Dance Festival, which is held every year in September. It is a dance that mixes different traditions, which originally were thought to protect the population from evil spirits and favour the harvest. There are also shows that are a sort of comedy in which the rich and the dignitaries are mocked and ridiculed.
