The Seowon is a unique District District of the Korean civilization in Civilization VI: Rise and Fall. It replaces the Campus and must be built on Hills.

Buildings[edit | edit source]

The following buildings can be constructed in a Seowon:

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Try to build the Seowons surrounded by hills and flat tiles suitable for Mines and Farms, so that you get the extra Science Science from Mines and Food Food from Farms.

Also make sure to build the Seowon away from other districts (including City Centers and Aqueducts), each of which will subtract 1 from its base Science Science yield of 4. The only exception is the Government Plaza, whose own built-in bonus cancels the penalty.

Even though its base Science Science yield of 4 is not described as an adjacency bonus, it does still benefit from adjacency bonus modifiers like the Natural Philosophy policy, allowing for an even bigger early-game tech lead (though at the cost of a valuable policy card slot). When possible, the Golden Age Dedication "Heartbeat of Steam" should be picked: combined with Natural Philosophy, your Seowons can produce up to 8 Science Science and Production Production.

In Gathering Storm, the power level of the Seowon is significantly hampered even though there is no direct nerf to this district. The regular Campus is now the easiest district to give a high starting adjacency bonus, due to major bonuses next to Reefs and Geothermal Fissures and many curvy mountain ranges on the map (thanks to new map generations). On certain map types (most notably, Primordial, where Mountains and Geothermal Fissures appear in huge numbers), the Seowon even pales somewhat when compared to its counterpart, since its Science Science is capped at 4 and can only scale downward.

Civilopedia entry[edit | edit source]

An educational crisis in 16th Century Korea brought about the seowon, a private institution designed to fill the scholarly void. The heavy emphasis on Confucian teachings and rituals were often expressed in the modest appearance of its structures. The preponderance of aristocratic children attending made the seowon ideal for discussing politics. This blend of Neo-Confucianism and topical matters created an ideal setting to explore new ideas about Korea’s contemporary culture and government.
