Gwanghwamun Plaza is one of the largest urban revitalization and restoration projects in South Korea's history, costing approximately US $38 million. The area was home to royal personnel during the days when Korea still had a monarchy. During the country's rapid industrialization in the second half of the 20th century, the area was lost in favor of lanes of traffic. In the 2000s, a massive revitalization project got underway and resulted in Gwanghwamun Plaza in late 2009, which is today a large green space where public events take place -- anything from simple floral displays to snowboarding competitions (using an artificially made slope).
