A District of Rapid Transformation

Main sights: Sindorim, Gocheok Sky Dome

Located in the southwestern part of the city, Guro District has an important position as a transport link from the rest of Seoul to the south of the country. Traditionally viewed by the locals as an industrial area with workshops and factories, Guro has been striving to change these preconceptions by introducing more IT companies and creating more green spaces in the district.

Nowadays, Guro is a place of great contrasts, where the big modern business and shopping centers of Sindorim and Guro Digital Complex stand side by side with lush green parkland. The opening of Gocheok Sky Dome has also revitalized part of the area and brings tens of thousands of baseball fans to the district every year. There's also a large Chinatown section near Namguro Station on Line 7 that's home to many Chinese ethnic Koreans and filled with delicious restaurants serving Northeast Chinese cuisine.
