Heyri Art Village, Paju

3.8
Less than 6 km (3.5 mi) from the North Korean border, you'll find the unlikely Heyri Art Village, a vibrant community of over 370 working artists. Between them, these architects, painters, writers, and musicians have created a manicured trove of unusual structures, streets, and suprising sights. Among the stark architecture you can expect to see unexpected sculptures, juxtaposed with ornate gardens and dilapidated retro rides. Look out for the "Farmer's Table," a restaurant used as a filming location in one of Korea's best-loved dramas, "Boys Before Flowers". You can see all this before even entering the township's abundant art galleries, displaying everything from traditional paintings to sculptures made of chocolate.

  • There is nothing there except few cafe. Buildings are normal and not like web site described. It was freezing cold in Jan and I cannot see any interesting thing there.  more »
  • They make small cafes and Museum District. Because it is nice to stroll slowly, indeed, located in North Korea even cold.

  • Korea's modern life, which developed rapidly in view of look good. If you visit with adults adults are evocative. Memorial to take a picture or rendering. If a slow look around more than an hour you can spend your time.

  • It is a nice place to stroll about and admire the architecture beauty and many cafes scattered around. Unfortunately we reached late in the evening and only managed to only go to Farmer's Table for dinner. Ambience is good and food is passable.
  • Nice place to drink coffee and relax. Plenty of museums with nice art pieces to take home
  • Not crowded, many restaurants and cafes. But cars everywhere on the road, its even difficult to walk around
  • This was a good place for photo shooting before. I have re-visited in Aug 2017, some area are already broken with only few choices of shops and cafe. Direction are clearly not enough and tourist has no idea to explore the whole area.
  • Various architecture,event,performances. Good place for couples. Famous K-dramas were taken in this place.
