Tapgol Park, Seoul
(3.1/5 based on 80 reviews on the web)
One of the first modern urban oases in Korea, Tapgol Park makes a good getaway from the bustle of the city streets. Well-established trees, carefully manicured flower beds, and abundant sculptures create a relaxing atmosphere to sit or picnic in. Look for the onsite national treasure, the 12 m (32.8 ft), ten-tiered stone Wongaksa Pagoda. Encased in a glass box, the pagoda dates from 1467; many historians consider it one of the finest examples of Joseon dynasty pagoda art in existence. Arrange to visit Tapgol Park and other attractions in Seoul using our Seoul vacation builder.

  • It is a beautiful and peaceful Park that catches close to everything, so you can spend a while to see it. But if you don't have time you can do without seeing it.

  • While the park is kind of small it is delightful. there are always cute, sometimes drunk, old men there. it's a great place to sit for a bit if you're needing a pause from the packed streets of insa-dong.
  • This park is quite small, actually. But it is located near Insa-dong and is one of historical site in Seoul. Worth to visit
  • Here is one of the most famous historical park in Seoul Jongro-3ga.
  • Small park with historical monuments from 15th century. On the right side of this park is small road with many restaurants. There is located one of my favourite in this area where you can find very cheap but superb spicy beef soup, cold noodle soup, grilled pork, bibimbap and dumplings.
  • Neat little memorial park with a lot of old people around.
