1. Imjingak Pyeonghwa Nuri near Munsan Station

A backside of sculptures called ‘Unification Calling,’ created by Korean sculptor Choi Pyung-gon and resembles the men walking out of the ground.

 

The Imjingak Pyeonghwa Nuri Park was created on the opposite side of the Imjingak, the principal symbol of the division of the Korean peninsula. The art works exhibited outdoors represent wishes for the peaceful reunification of the Korean peninsula. In particular, the scene of the ‘Windy Hill’ turning more than 3,000 pinwheels is wonderful. It also features an observatory from which visitors can gaze at North Korea beyond the Imjingang River, and a rusty old steam train that’s ‘still eager to run’ and is a symbol of the pain of national division.
