Hwaseong Fortress, Suwon
Categories: Historic Walking Areas, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site, Hwaseong Fortress embodies the economic and militaristic power of the Joseon Dynasty at the end of the 18th century. Stretching for 5.52 km (3.43 mi), the partly restored fortress houses many different military facilities, along with the king's palace. Notice the holes in the walls which allowed easy gun/arrow fire and spear-attacking during the siege. As you explore along the long solid wall, observe the structures that surround it, like floodgates, watchtowers, wooden pavilions, and the beacon tower. You can attend a variety of performances here, as well as annual festivals, to fully experience the fort's history and tradition.
