    If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul,
    Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s
    most important historic sites and neighbourhoods.
    Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area
    is rich with history and culture in its palaces,
    shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of
    Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt.
