Hué in time

Hué in time

About the Blog

What´s left of the Old Hué gives a vague idea of how the Citadel and Imperial City looked like during the times of the Nguyen dynasty. Was the city as enchanting as its remains are striking with their absence? What was the ideal of beauty? Who were the artists? Which details are authentic and what is much later translation of former splendor?
Presuming that I´m not the only person interested, adding the great outreach of internet, the blog may be a platform for us who want to know more and who have something to tell about the city of Hué. In time.

Exit from the Imperial City.

Undated postcard taken probably in the 1950-ties or 1960-ties. The flag seen in the background is not the one of the Ho Chi Minh´s Vietnam, looks rather as the one of the South Vietnam. Private collection.

The more recent photo taken from another angle. March 212
