if you are interested in Korean history this is a worthwhile place to visit. There are English pamphlets in the "letter boxes" that you can take which outlines the history of the cemetery and people buried there. Easy to get to as it right by the subway exit 6 on the number 9 line.

The Korean National Cemetery is a virtual Who's Who of recent Korean history and politics. Well worth a stroll to glance at former presidents and generals grave sites. Not far from the subway and actually very serene experience. Prisetinely maintained and free admission. Indoor Korean War Memorial with names of fallen soldiers also on display.

According to the Asian culture, the choice of the location of the final resting place for the deceased is of great importance to ensure prosperity, happiness and success for later generations. If you wish to have a hands-on feeling of the national spirit of South Korea, to know more about its past and present, and to understand first-hand “Fengshui” theories,... More

Especially in spring a good place to have a walk. Beautiful flowers and quiet place. Can see tombs of former presidents and graves of many soldiers.
