Munsan Station is a railway station on Gyeongui Line, and the northern terminus of the Gyeongui–Jungang metro line. It is notable for being the closest station on the Seoul Metropolitan Subway to the border with North Korea that is open for passenger service, only a few kilometers away.[2] As a regular railway station it is an interim stop between Dorasan Station in the demilitarised zone and Seoul Station.[3]
