Reunification Palace

Reunification Palace Review

Built on the ruins of two previous palaces, Reunification Palace is one of the more potent symbols of Vietnam's 30-year war for independence. On April 30, 1975, it was at Reunification Palace—then known as Independence Palace—where a North Vietnamese Army tank smashed through the main gate, thus ending one of the bloodiest conflicts in living memory. The tank and the fighter jet that bombed the palace weeks before the war's end are both on display.
