Even for Seoul residents or natives, Bukchon Korean traditional house town makes them wonder that it stills exists and is part of Seoul. As you may know, Seoul is full of modern and hi-tech and no one expects an old traditional town in the middle of the city. Bukchon Hanok village is the old town located between Gyeongbokgung palace and Jongmyo shrine and named as North village. It also has lower land in the south than in the north. This characteristic provides a great viewpoint where you can enjoy the landscape of Mt. Namsan and a forest of skyscrapers. This is the reason why noble families and high-ranking officials of the Josun dynasty lived in North village. Bukchon is also a hanok (traditional house) concentrated area and its alleys wind and twist between the houses. The traditional houses stand close together roof by roof. Everyday life in Hanok takes place not only within the houses but also outside of houses in the alleys. In alleys, adults have friendly conversations and the elderly take a rest and converse among themselves. There used to be only 30 traditional houses with black tile roofs left but people and government have tried to keep this town as original in form as possible so you can see how people used to live together for 600 years in the Chosun dynasty. Bukchon is called ""the street museum in the urban core"" having many historical spots and cultural heritage sites of the 600-year-old history of Seoul. For visitors, the alleys of Bukchon are an interesting window which exists into the ordinary lives of ordinary Koreans.
