Traditional national culture is the result of human wisdom that has gone through centuries of challenges and searches. It can be seen in the architecture and garden-park complexes especially. Traditional garden-park culture of each country is a culmination of an understanding of the unity of the natural environment, religion and nationality. Therefore, this culture is unique and has its own origin. In this article, the role of architectural elements in the Korean garden-park complexes was analyzed. Traditional garden-park architecture has a special value, as it is a unique recording of time and space; it has the complex not partial nature of culture and is a "ship", which consists of various elements of traditional culture. Moreover, it shows people's thoughts about beauty and influences on people's minds and bodies. That is why researching of aesthetics of Korean garden-park complexes is the way to understand Korean national culture. Today we can see a tendency to simplify national styles and replace them by unified global cultural standards and models. This process influence on national cultures negatively. So analyze of the  role that plays architecture in Korean garden-park complexes allows not only to trace the evolution of aesthetics but it is also important for understanding the mechanism of culture interaction.
