Main sights: Gwanak Mountain, Seoul National University Campus, Nakseongdae, Sillim
Previously a part of Siheung city, Gwanak district quickly became one of the most densely populated areas of Seoul in the 1980s. Previously a farming area at the foot of the dominating Gwanak Mountain, Gwanak became home to the biggest campus in Seoul - Seoul National University - as well as a number of popular student gathering spots around Sillim and Nakseongdae stations.
The district has some of the cheapest housing in central Seoul with many one rooms and goshiwons for students and office workers from the nearby Seocho and Gangnam areas. Apart from vibrant youth culture and trendy restaurants, Gwanak also has several beautiful hiking trails, temples, and a shrine.
