Daegu is the fourth most densely populated city in South Korea after Seoul, Busan and Incheon. Bearing its official name as Daegu Metropolitan City, it is the capital of the province of North Gyeongsang, even though it is not part of the province. It is located in the northern region of Yeongnam. Total area of the city is estimated at 886.62 km2. Daegu is situated in a valley surrounded by small mountains like Mount Palgong in the north, Biseul in the south, the hills of Gaya to the west, and a series of smaller hills to the east. Daegu is warmer than the rest of Korea during the summer, because the mountains keep warm and moist air. In the same way, temperatures are colder in the winter. The area is deficient in rainfall except in the summer. The Geumho River flows through the northern and eastern boundaries of the city and flows to the west to join the Nakdong River. Industries of this city are mainly based on textiles, metals and machinery.
