What travelers say:

The Myodong Cathedral, built in 1898, is the first Catholic cathedral in Korea, with a history of 115 years. In the modern history of Korea, the Myodong Cathedral is more democratized for Korea, which is called the Holy Land of Korean Democratization. As the first brick Gothic building in South Korea, with a different atmosphere from other stone Gothic buildings, the Myeongdong Catholic Church is designated as a historic site. Stepping into the church, it is contrary to the hustle and bustle of the city, and feels unimaginable solemnity and tranquility. Every Christmas Eve, the Cathedral of Myeongdong will hold midnight mass, adorned the neon lights of the church, mysterious and beautiful.
