The Fountain of Tourny is situated next to the Parliament Building and very close to the Citadel. This is the same fountain next to which Kim Shin waits for Ji Eun Tak to arrive in the super popular kdrama Goblin! It must have been embarrassing...More

It is a beautiful fountain, but it is in the middle of a very busy street. Not exactly the best place to get to if you want to take a photo. It is however right in front of the Parliament building.

We were told that this fountain was a gift to the city, then the donor was told to keep it in good repair. An expensive gift?
