The Independence Hall of Korea looks mesmerizing and ecstatically beautiful the day we went there. It was totally covered with snow. No matter how far your eyesight 👁️ goes , you will see only snow, snow and snow. For a moment i felt like i am in some kind of snow festival area. The place is quite and calming. Mountains and trees were covered with snow. Now I have a habit of searching about places and researching about them before i go there. I see the reviews and the pictures and everything so that my money, time and energy doesn’t go to waste. So I searched about this place and i saw a couple of pictures and the place seems to me beautiful but the pictures are of different season and there’s no winter pictures, so at first i was scared whether we should go there or not in winter but i am glad we made the decision of taking the risk of going there. To my amazement we did right. It was beautiful! Now coming to the inside of the Hall there are a number of halls, it was a huge complex so we were able to see only 6 halls. The pictures and videos you can watch below👇🏻 The place has a huge parking lot with 2000-3000 korean won. And the entrance fee to the Hall is free free free😎
Very well laid out and almost everything is in Korean and English. There’s plenty of parking (2,000₩) and entry is free. Well worth a day of exploring and learning about Korean history. Would highly recommend for my US military folks stationed here.
An amazing land dedicated to the Independence of the Korea Country. I would imagine that this goes for both North and South Korea. You go through many different buildings that show the history and importance of the independence that Korea has gained from Japan and China. The land itself is just beaultiful to see. And they have 815 South Korean flags to signify that importance of August 18 the Korean Liberation day. Definitly make your way there if you get the chance.
There’s a lot of cool places to visit in Korea . This independence hall located in cheonan is one of them. There’ll be a lot of people visiting this place locals and foreigners during weekends but don’t worry parking lot is huge. There’s also Coffee shop and restaurant in the area. Recommend to wear comfortable shoes if you wanna see the whole area.
2,000 won for parking. Free entrance. Great place to take pictures, relax and good place to get your steps in. Great fall pictures. Very educational, will be returning.
