This place that makes you feel as if you are in a remote rural area is Otgol Village located less than 10 minutes after leaving the center of city. In a rapidly changing metropolis, this village has silently preserved itself for 400 years of time. Otgol Village, wrapped by the foot of Palgongsan Mountain like a folding screen, is the hometown of Gyeongju Choi clan. The beautiful stone wall road and the Baekbul Old House, the oldest house in Daegu, greet you.

Modern History Streets
Daegu’s interesting history is beautifully illustrated in its “Modern History Streets” in the Jung-gu area. There are five different routes to follow through the streets and Course 2, Modern Culture Alley, is perhaps the most interesting, covering roughly a century of local history. Here, visitors can explore attractions such as the House of Missionary Chamness, Daegu’s first Western-style building, Gyesan Catholic Church, and the Daegu Yangnyeongsi Museum of Oriental Medicine.
