  • Surrounded by Seoul City Hall and Plaza Hotel almost circular square. In the beautiful green grass in 88 years, went to Seoul for the first time, the sprawling intersection like, was crisscrossed by car, but in August, when Piazza was supposed. Usually the resting square. Another day, in the rain, had to rally or something. Has looked at the differences between the old.

  • Foreigners maybe think to be just one of the squares, but it is a special place for Koreans. First of all it is a capital city of the Republic of Korea, it means the center of the Republic of Korea. Many democratization protests have been held in the process of democratization of the Republic of Korea, and sometimes cultural festivals and concerts are held for citizens. Since 2002 Korea World Cup, millions of citizens enjoyed the festival, cheering for soccer in the square. In the winter season, ice rinks are built and citizens are enjoy skating.
  • I really like this place because of all the fun activities they do there during spring summer and beginning of fall, from streetart performances to sevillanas or kpop music. They also celebrated the main event of the LGTB parade. So cool place. Don't expect anything very cool if there isn't any event, it's just a big piece of grass
  • The hotel we stayed in was across the street from this place. There was some worker prepping the grounds for some events that's scheduled. Unfortunately, we missed it as we checked out at noon. Otherwise, this place is quite interesting.
  • Located at the central of Seoul infront of the city hall...the plaza is dedicated to Seoul people to do activities, rest and walk freely. The day that I went, there was a national meeting of Labor unions.
  • Seoul Plaza is right infront of Seoul City Hall and there is normally some event going on there. I recommend if you see an event just drop by and see what is going on. It's a great experience!
