History Lovers’ Perfect Date Spot: ‘Changgyeonggung Greenhouse’ in Jongro, Seoul
Changgyeonggung(창경궁) is a beautiful palace that was designed initially for Queens to stay. But during the tragic Japanese colonial period, part of the palace got re-built and became a greenhouse and a zoo. It was mostly to humiliate and make the last king of Korea, King Sunjong, powerless.
In the year 1984, Korea went on to knock down the buildings that were built during Japan’s occupation. However, because of its design that meant something important to the world’s architecture industry, the ‘greenhouse in Changgyeonggung(창경궁 대온실)’ would remain in the palace.
This is Korea’s very first western-style architectural building. Its beautiful glass ceiling and white frames with rare plants growing peacefully within it are very pleasing to an eye, and that’s what makes it a special dating spot.
