  • When our district was divided from Do-bong-gu on January 1st of 1988, most of the areas were occupied by agricultural areas. But now it’s become big-scaled residential area surrounded by beautiful nature and abundant green zones. With the opening of subway lines four and seven, the No-Won station area has become the place with the fifth largest floating population. No-Won-gu is now the center of northeastern Seoul in both reality and name.
  • Soo-rak Mountain and Bul-am Mountain are just outside of Kyung-gi-do so the street is always packed with mountain climbers. Also there is a forest therapy area to promote health and cultivate the culture of the local people.
