Free entrance. Near the hanok village, the school has a picture-worthy building and front area. I just wish the restroom is more maintained. Outside its gates, numerous merchandise are being sold.

Interesting western architecture in the heart of Seoul. Walking distance from world heritage sites of Changdeokgung. You will be walking uphill through streets of interesting shops.

Neighbourhood Profile
Samcheongdong / Bukchon
This historic neighbourhood was traditionally home to Seoul’s middle and upper-classes. Now it’s most famed for its clusters of beautiful, traditional Korean homes (called hanok), many of which are found in Bukchon. Many of these homes have now been converted into restaurants, cafes, shops, and even guesthouses, and their unique architecture offers a look at Korea’s traditional beauty. Samcheongdong’s main and side streets attract locals and tourists alike for their quaint and charming scenery, while the Blue House (Cheong Wa Dae) serves as the residence for South Korea’s president. Art fans will love exploring the many independent and private art galleries in the area.
