Places to See in Seoul; Ssamzie-gil Complex

There is a nice building in Insadong, which is I think worthy to see. Just before talking about this building, let me introduce you the area firstly.

Insa-dong (인사동) is a central neighborhood of Seoul. It is so popular among tourists and art lovers. Later I am going to talk about Insadong more, but today I want to show you a building (or ‘complex’ is more accurate) in Insadong:

Ssamzie-gil Complex (쌈지길)DSC_0328I have learnt that it was built in 2004 by the Ssamzie Co. Ltd. The constructor company defines Ssamzie-gil as  “a bridge between the past and present.”

I think this building is successful both in case of architecture and usage. The day I was there it was full of people. It was almost possible to move.


Around the center courtyard, there is a gently-sloping ramp which allows users to reach upper floors. All this circulating ramp, from first level to top is about half a kilometer. Along this ramp so many storefronts offer so nice artcrafts and other goods.
