Located where South Korea meets North, Imjingak Pyeonghoa-Nuri Park makes up part of a larger site giving a glimpse into the history of the Korean War and life in the North through various photographs and artifacts. While the wider resort was established 1972 to promote the eventual reunification of the two countries, the sculptured landscape of this park was built in 2005 as part of the Global Peace Festival. Inspect several installation artworks, including Choi Pyung-gon'’s renowned “"Calling Unification,"” which depicts bamboo men walking uphill towards North Korea. In the wider park, observe over 400 photographs illustrating the reality of life in North Korea, as well as heavy artillery relics of the war, including a rusted train, shot full of holes.

  • Interesting place to understand the history of Korea. Most DMZ tour operators stop here to show the park. Worth visiting for Korea visitors.  more »
  • This park is near the Line which separates North Korea from South Korea. They have facsimiles of the Third Tunnel built by the North to invade the South. There is a Bell of Peace.  more »
  • I went for the first time. For the time being, it was cold. At large so much, feel the history there is the location. Korea, I find I have made, I thought the family was separated from song and was deeply moved.

Where to stay in Paju

Paju offers a large amount of hotels for its visitors, with all brackets represented across the diverse urban area. Look close to the river for some of the spa and retreat options, along with hotels and guesthouses boasting luxury rooms and river views. In the urban center to the north, you'll find a good deal more standard hotels and budget options. Still, many more people head to Paju to see its sights (primarily the DMZ) on a day trip from Seoul.
