Koreans take great pride in their cultural heritage and for ample reason. The ancient kingdoms of Goguryeo, Baekje and Silla produced some of the world's most outstanding Buddhist arts. Goryeo, the dynasty that ruled Korea from 918 to 1392, produced inlaid celadon ceramics of impeccable beauty and the world's most comprehensive collection of Buddhist scriptures, the Tripitaka Koreana, flawlessly carved from over 80,000 woodblocks. The first movable metal type was developed by Goryeo scholars two centuries before it appeared in Europe. The monarchs of Joseon (1392 - 1910) also supported the creation of such notable firsts as a rain gauge, ironclad battleship, and an alphabet so scientific that modern linguists praise its efficiency. Over their long history, Koreans have developed a vibrant culture with unique customs that can be found throughout the peninsula and in distant lands where Korean communities continue to pass down traditions. Koreans value learning and have earned a reputation for diligence and perseverance. These traits helped foster a culture well suited to the natural surroundings of a mountainous peninsula
