5 Shinnam Station - Daegu Modern History Alley(Geundae Cultural Alley)
Modern History Alley rises as the most popular tourist attraction in Daegu within a few years. You can find Chungra hill which commands a fine view of several well-preserved modern-times buildings and structures including the stairs of March First Independence Movement, the representative base of independence movement in Daegu in Japanese colonial time, and Gyesan Cathedral at a glance.
6 Gundul Rock Station - Gundul Rock
Gundul rock, used to be called 'Satgat(bamboo hat) rock' because it looks like an old man who wears Satgat, was designated as the 2nd natural monument of Daegu city.
Strangely enough, the rock was produced due to the force of river current of Daegu River, but no river or stream runs around it now. That’s because the water course had been changed when frequent floods suffered nearby villagers, and called the river Shincheon since then.
