About Cheongwon

Surrounding the city of Cheongju, Cheongwon is a sprawling district in the South Korean province of North Chungcheong.

During the 16th-century Battle of Cheongju, Japanese soldiers fought Korean warrior monks representing the ruling Joseon kingdom.

In the centre of Cheongju is the Early Printing Museum, which preserves the ancient Buddhist text of “Jikji”. Containing influential Buddhist sayings, it was originally printed during the 14th-century Goryeo Dynasty and is the world’s oldest existing book featuring movable type. Also on display are hundreds of documents and artefacts related to printing in Korea throughout the centuries.

The country’s long-established history of manufacturing silk is showcased at the Korea Silk Museum, which is set across four exhibition halls on the outskirts of Cheongju.
