Hue was unified Vietnam's capital from 1802 to 1945, during the rule of the emperors of the Nguyen Dynasty. It was not only the political but also the cultural and religious centre. The imperial citadel used is comparable to Beijing's forbidden city, but most of it was destroyed during the bloody fighting which followed the Tet offensive in 1968. It is still an interesting sigh.
