From 1802 to 1945, Hue was the nation’s capital and the seat of the Nguyen Dynasty emperors. Today, the city blends new and old as sleek modern hotels tower over crumbling century old Citadel walls. A major attraction is its vast, 19th century Citadel, surrounded by a moat and thick stone walls. It encompasses the Imperial City, with palaces and shrines, the Forbidden Purple City, once the emperor’s home and a replica of the Royal Theater.
