“In the 1970s, an elevated road was built to connect the eastern and western sides around Seoul Station. However, the road was closed to road traffic due to safety issues. After this, rather than tearing down the existing structure, the road was transformed into Seoullo 7017, a new pedestrian walking experience. Seoullo 7017 gets its name from its years of new life, from being a traffic road in the 70s to a sky garden in 2017. The "17" also has a deeper meaning, with Seoullo 7017 being divided into 17 unique sections, and the road being located 17 meters above the ground. There are a variety of facilities along Seoullo 7017, including an information center, cafes, gardens, and stages. Seoullo 7017 itself is open all day, every day for visitors to enjoy at their leisure. If you would like a guided tour, be sure to sign up for the guided walking tour through the official Visit Seoul website”

Mountain
“N Seoul Tower is an all-time favorite tourist attraction and has become a symbol of Seoul. Its view becomes even more spectacular when seen after sunset, as it sits atop Namsan Mountain, offering a panoramic view of the city. The tower not only has the best view in town, but it is also equipped with various subsidiary facilities where visitors can shop and dine, suited for a unique trip both day and night. It is particularly popular among couples, who come on dates and hang locks on the deck railing as a sign of their promise to love each other.”

The fortress wall constructed in the middle of the fortress was constructed partly during the modernization of modern times, but it remains a cultural heritage because it remains intact until today. ”

Park
“The Seosomun Gate area, which is located outside Seomun Gate, is regarded as a sacred place for many Korean Catholics. During the 19th century, the church suffered persecution for introducing Catholicism in the country. A series of persecutions followed over the years, notably the Sinyu Persecution in 1801 and the Byeongbin Persecution in 1866. The memorial tower in the center of the park is for the 44 martyrs who died for their Catholic faith during the persecution. It was originally established in December 1984 and rebuilt on May 15, 1999. The tower consists of three granite pillars: the middle one is 15 meters high while the two pillars on both sides are each 13 meters high.”
