Hoa Lư was the native land of the first two imperial dynasties of Vietnam: the Đinh founded by Đinh Tiên Hoàng, and the Early Lê founded by Lê Đại Hành. Following the demise of the Lê Dynasty, in 1010 Lý Công Uẩn, the founder of the Lý Dynasty, transferred the capital to Thăng Long (now Hanoi) and Hoa Lư became known as the “ancient capital.”
Trang An has a system of limestone mountains and natural caves. Visiting Trang An, visitors will be surprised by the spectacular mountains, green trees and the clear river valley at the foot of cliffs and mysterious caves.
