Besides renowned for the King Sejong's statue and also the underground museum, I liked my visit to Gwanghwamun Square on a weekend when there was a flea market along the square. It had numerous to offer, including the delicate wooden craft that was attracted me. I also enjoyed watching various activities around the square. It looked like the Seoulites were enjoying the weekend spent there.
Hemmed in on both sides by rushing traffic and foreign embassies, the newly-completed Gwanghwamun Square, a long and broad concrete plaza at the center of one of the city's most important cultural and governmental districts, is a delightful and sorely needed public space in a city that sometimes lacks for them. With the long avenue framing Seoul's low mountains in the background, and statues of Admiral Yi and King Sejong the Great, it's a pretty spot, and especially popular in the evenings and the warm summer months, when the city's children flock to play in the synchronized fountains on its edge.
A landmark and symbol of Seoul's history.
One of my favourite places in Seoul. :)
Its a big street with the monument of a general and the father of the korean alphabet.
Huge central plaza in front of Gyeongbukgong Palace, and easily accessible through the city subway. Check out the statue of King Sejong at the middle of the square - there's an entrance at the back leading to an underground museum dedicated to the life and works of Sejong The Great.
