Dorasan Station, Paju

(2.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Built in the most northern point in country, Dorasan Station symbolizes the yearning of South Korean people for unification with their brethren. Take a guided tour through the empty, modern station displaying exhibits of wishes and hopes of reconciliation. Displays show how the Berlin Wall fell and Germany re-united. Look for the unification clock displaying how long the process took in Germany, and the other showing the period of separation between Northa and South Korea. The station exudes a hope for a better future, but also acknowledges the bitter present, since all the stores and immigration offices are vacant and military secures the area. Descriptions are thoroughly explained in English. Using our online itinerary creator, Paju attractions like Dorasan Station can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
