The best thing of the cathedral is the location and view. The management team is also good to manage the facility. The cathedral has a really good old structure.

Amongst the traditional architecture in the area, sits this beautiful old church which is very popular with the locals as it's "different" with plenty of people, both young and old posing and taking photos. Because of the novelty factor of being so foreign resulting in...More

There’s lots of Christian churches in Korea but this is one of the finest examples. Near to the palace it seems slightly out of place. Very European in style - not sure but maybe Eastern Europe, the interior is superb. One of the many attractions...More
