Ihwa Mural Village, Seoul

(4/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Seated on the side of Mount Naksan, Ihwa Mural Village offers a quirky scene of traditional houses decorated with brightly colored painting. A success story for the 2006 Naksan art outreach project, the murals breathe new life into the village, nicknamed "moon village" due to its elevated proximity to the night sky. As you wander the steep rickety paths searching for your next mural, don't forget to look out over the skyline of Seoul. Maps are available to lead you to some of the more established murals and mosaics, although new works pop up all the time so keep your eyes peeled. Use our Seoul travel itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Ihwa Mural Village and other attractions in Seoul.

  • The visit was dissapointing because best murals, which were on stairs, are no longer available. There are much better places to see in Seoul.  more »
  • Beyond the University to downtown complex under the rear naksan Seoul neighborhood. The narrow alleys of the actual residents and is connected to the top of the village, a little pretty cafes. At the top of the town and Castle of Seoul at night along the fire grew even more with the castle on a beautiful. There are also a restaurant you can feel the old mood with hiding. Keep in mind that the road up the Hill and should be careful not to disturb residents. Weekend tourists can be.

  • Mural paintings of the famous staircase was gone was not around so all over the place depicted do not get bored at all. Metro 4 also was to go walk when went to changdeok Palace went off at the hyehwa station, subway line, the transfer was a bit. (About 20 minutes from changdeokgung) stairs and a steep slope so walking shoes are recommended. Because of the many cafés along the way found a public toilet Ma - physical bit. and stop looking at my map and also took a walk. Pictures look good in a guidebook I found! Since the day began during filming of the drama also looked a little bit.
