Imjingak & Bridge of Freedom
Bridge of FreedomThe Bridge of Freedom is the only passage that connects the South and North from Imjingang River, a border between the two Koreas. It is a symbol of the division of the Korean peninsula along with the “Bridge of No Return” in Panmunjom. It used to be a rail bridge on the Gyeongui Line running from Seoul to Sinuiju, the end of northwest North Korea. It is an historic place where POWs were exchanged, and summit meetings were held between representatives. The bridge takes its name after the words of POWs, who named it the “bridge of freedom” when returning to the south. At the entrance of the closed bridge are ribbons bound there by people who wish for peace and reunification.
