Jongno-gu



At the heart of Seoul, the Jongno and Gwanghwamun areas have long been considered the political, economic and cultural center of the city. They cover approximately two square kilometers from City Hall Station and Gwanghwamun in the west, to Jongno 5-ga and Ulchiro 4-ga Stations in the east. Here you will find an astonishing contrast of old and new. Ancient royal palaces and cultural inheritances, such as the Deoksu, Gyeongbok and Changgyeong palaces, the National Museum and Chogyesa Temple, surround the downtown area of Jongno, which bustles with people enjoying movie theaters, stores and restaurants. Chongno and Kyobo bookstores, Lotte Department Store and the Millennium Plaza are all within easy reach. Government offices, embassies, and corporate headquarters are located here. Tapkol and Sajik parks provide respite from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets, and Insadong—a street famous for traditional tea houses, art galleries and antiques—runs north of the district's main street.
