Since Seoul is the Capital city of Korea, of course You MUST go to Seoul Station. Seoul Station is located in Jung-gu(gu means “region”). Actually Seoul Station is little bit different from other stations. There are 2 stations in the Station. Did you understand what I mean? There are a subway(metro) station and also train station too!
The Seoul station was built in 1900 as the name of “KyongSeong” station when Korea was the colony of Japan. There were many changes like Kyongseong → Namdaemun → Kyongseong againg, but finally it has had the name of “Seoul” when Korea got independence from Japan.
It’s the exhibition of the pictures when the station had former form. The former form has been destroyed so they are restoring now 😀 I think the design of building was quite cool, so I’m expecting to see it ^^The design is like English more than Korean.
The place where the Seoul station is located is the center of Seoul. If you want to know about Stations of Korea, YOU MUST; HAVE TO; SHOULD VISIT THERE ^_^!
