National Library of Korea | 국립중앙도서관

A ten-minute walk from the bustling Express Bus Terminal and Central City shopping mall will lead you here. It houses over 7 million volumes, manuscripts, and periodicals, including over 840,000 foreign books and a vast digital archive. It would be nice to visit the library and spend some time reading before going on a trip out of Seoul.

EAT>
Central City is home to a myriad of fine restaurants, and there is a large food court on the basement floor of Shinsegae Department Store.

BUY>
Central City is much like a city within a city, bringing together Shinsegae, Youngpoong Bookstore, Central Terminal, the Cinus theater complex, and the JW Marriott Hotel.

SEE>
Seoripul Park, which flanks the library, is connected to Montmartre Park across the street through an overpass structure called the Silkworm Bridge. Southern Seoul used to be a hub for silk production in dynastic times.
