As the monorail is about to open, the hidden attractions which were hard to access due to the lack of public transportation have been found by ones and twos. Among those unrevealed spots, here’s introduced 99-Stair Mural Village.
Thanks to the talent donation (pro bono publico) of a local art club, the 99-Stair Mural Village, which used to be a normal residential area, became a special tourist attraction.
A wall at village entrance says '99계단 벽화마을(99 Stairs Mural Village)'. Following the red arrow will bring you to start point of the 99 stairs. On the way to the stairs, a variety of murals will afford pleasure to the eye.
The 99-stair finally reveals itself! It's very high as the name says. Though the stairs is dizzily high as much as the neck is totally bent, you will find yourself on the top of the stairs in spite of yourself while enjoying murals painted on both sides of the wall.
The autographs of talent donors, Daegu high school Art Club and Icheon-dong Citizen autonomy Organization, who worked hard under the blazing sun last summer, are decorating the last part of the mural. When monorail opens, this place must be more popular than now. If you mind seeing around tourist attractions in a big crowd, it's wise to visit this place earlier than other people do.
