  2. info_photo_116_1.bmp * CITY HALL Founded in 1926 Seoul City Hall is a Renaissance-style stone building. Seoul Square in front of City Hall is a historic site where the 1919 (Samil) Independence Movement and the pro-democracy movement in June 1987 were held. It is also a well-known place where tens of thousands of Korean soccer fans came to cheer at during the 2002 World Cup Games. * GWANGHWAMUN Gwanghwamun is the main gate of Gyeongbokgung founded in 1395 by the first king of Joseon Tae-Jo. It is the south gate of the four gates of Gyeongbokgung Palace. The name means "may the light of enlightenment blanket the world" and it carries the high purpose the founding people of Joseon in creating a new dynasty. Gwanghwamun was constructed out of granite. In the center is an entrance that resembles a rainbow called Hongyemun and above that is a gate tower.
  3. 광화문대로4.jpg The new Gwanghwamun Square is inaugurated in June 2009. Actually the square is a rectangle stretching over 740 m all along Sejongno from Gwanghwamun itself (still under renovation in its original location) to the Statue of Admiral Yi Sun-shin at the cross with Jongro and Shinmunro. Until now eight lanes of traffic were separated by a thin green band hosting old gingko trees. The idea is to develop the central section open it to the public and turn the whole street into a large plaza for special occasions. So this rectangle will be 10 to 34 m wide depending on the days and much bigger if you include the large pavements on both sides.
