Gwanghwamun Square to Reopen on August 6th

[elementor-template id=”4310″]

Gwanghwamun Square will be reopened to the public tomorrow on August 6, 2022, with bigger space and more green. The square has been under construction for a year and 9 months.

It aims to become a place where people can enjoy daily lives, relax, and take a rest. By removing the lane, the total area of Gwanghwamun Square has increased by 2.1 times.

Before the construction, a lot of protests were held in Gwanghwamun Square, resulting in noise pollution and severe traffic. As the square reopens, the city will strictly limit and manage any gatherings or protests that may cause noise or traffic.

Gwanghwamun Square also emphasizes the importance of history. Cultural relics, such as the wells and drainage channels from the site of Saheonbu (the office of inspector general during the Goryeo and Joseon dynasties) excavated during the construction will be exhibited in the square.

– Address: 172, Sejong-daero, Jongno-gu, Seoul
