Traditionally serving as a border land shared by the Three Kingdoms -- Baekje, Shilla, and Goguryeo -- Chungju had a unique culture that was a mixture of the three, called Jungwon culture. A number of precious relics and artifacts remain from that period and are scattered throughout the city. One of those is the Jung-angtop, a pagoda tower which indicated the actual center of the Korean peninsula and also serves as a monument to the victory of Jungwon during the Goguryeo dynasty. The park around the pagoda has an exhibition hall with historic relics from the region.

In a small park near the post office is the Jung-ang Gongwon (central park), inside which are structures from the late Joseon era: the Cheongnyeongheon, which used to be the office of the city magistrate, and the Jegeomdang, part of the magistrate's residence. Across the stream on the north is the Chungju Hyanggyo, a Confucian academy, originally built in 1398 (and rebuilt in 1897).
