The humid subtropical climate of Daegu is ideal for producing high quality apples, thus the nickname, "Apple City".It was absorbed into the kingdom of Silla no later than the fifth century.The vestiges of the wall can be seen, and relics have been excavated in the current Dalseong Park.Silla succeeded in unifying the Korean peninsula by defeating the other kingdoms of Baekje and Koguryo in the late 7th century, partly thanks to assistance from China's Tang Dynasty.Shortly thereafter, in 689, Silla's King Sinmun considered moving the capital from Gyeongju to Daegu but was unable to do so.During the Later Three Kingdoms period, 892–936, Daegu was initially aligned with Hubaekje.

In 927, northern Daegu was the site of the Battle of Gong Mountain between the forces of Goryeo under Wang Geon and those of Hubaekje under Gyeon Hwon.

In this battle, the forces of Goryeo were crushed and Wang Geon himself was saved only by the heroic deed of his general Shin Sung-gyeom.

However, it appears that the atrocities of the Hubaekje forces at this time changed local sympathizers to favor Wang Geon, who later became the king of Goryeo.

Megalithic burials (dolmens) have also been found in large numbers in Daegu.

Ancient historical texts indicate that during the Proto–Three Kingdoms (Mahan, Jinhan and Byeonhan) period, Daegu was the site of a chiefdom or walled-town polity known from that time, according to historical records, as Dalgubeol.

The Daegu basin, where the city lies, is the central plain of the Yeongnam region.
