It is often overlooked by residents and visitors -- the charming "Heart of the Daehan Empire" 1880s~1920s.
Jeong-dong is filled with architectural treasures exemplifying the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, as Korea's Joseon Dynasty (temporarily called the Great Han Empire) came crashing down under pressures from many foreign imperial powers. I will tell many poignant stories from that era.
Included will be the Seoul Anglican Cathedral, old Salvation Army Headquarters, entrances of the British and American Ambassador's Residences, Old Courthouse, PaiChai Boy's School, First Methodist Church, Simpson Hall of Korea's first high school for girls, the historic Jungmyeong-jeon Hall and the former Russian Legation Tower -- along with the small museums contained in many of those!
If you are interested in the history and great architecture of the 1880s~1920s era, this tour will fascinate you. . . I am a professional expert on all of this, and will show and explain every feature.
