City Hall Station is a station on Seoul Subway lines 1 (Blue Line) and 2 (Green Line). As its name suggests, Seoul City Hall is located right next to the station. Deoksugung, a historic palace of the Joseon dynasty, is on the other side of the boulevard named Taepyeongno.

Places[edit]

Seoul Museum of Art is also nearby. The museum has hosted many special exhibitions, including those of the works of van Gogh, Monet, and René Magritte.[2] The head offices of three daily newspapers, Chosun Ilbo, Donga Ilbo and Kyunghyang Shinmun, are near the city hall. Seoul Plaza Hotel is located across from the city hall.
