Kongju was the capital city of Paekche (Baekje) from 475-538 and even afterwards it played a central role in the region, until Taejŏn (Daejeon) arose as a new regional center. Historically, it has experienced diverse phases not only as a local center of politics but also in terms of culture and education. Some of its historical sites have been selected as UNESCO World Heritage site.
