Hoa Lu was the capital of Vietnam in the 10th and 11th centuries. The area is one of ricefields broken by picturesque limestone mountains, and is approximately 90 km (2,5hours) south of Hanoi. The capital at Hoa Lư covered an area of 300 ha (3.0 km2), including both the Inner and Outer Citadels. It included defensive earthen walls, palaces, temples and shrines, and was surrounded and protected by mountains of limestone. Today, the ancient citadel no longer exists, and few vestiges of the 10th century remain.
