Have you ever wanted a little extra help when navigating the streets of Seoul? I’m not talking about bus or subway apps, I’m talking about an app designed to show you the city and its history. If so, take a look at this:
Jongno (종로) is the name of a central district in Seoul. The area gets its name from the main street that crosses it: Jongno or Bell Street. For more than 600 years, this area has served as the capital of the nation. Here you’ll find government offices, Blue House (the President’s residence), key business offices, the United States Embassy, and scores of historical places. As a result, those wanting to get up close and personal with Korea’s history will often spend some time exploring back alleys. If you’re not sure where to go or see, have no fear – they have an iPhone app for that.
