Hwaseong Fortress & Korean Folk Village
The Suwon Hwaseong Fortress went through many turbulent times and damage, and in the battle of June 25th, many of the facilities became so damaged that they were deemed irreparable. Even though the fortress restoration initiative (1975-1979) restored many of the sites to their former glory, Paldalmun to Dongnamgakru (an area 491 meters in length) has still not been renovated. The fortress was designated as Historical Monument No. 3 in January 1963, and in December 1997, it was designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site.
Korean Folk Village introduces traditional culture from the late Joseon period to both local and international visitors through cultural classes experience, shaman faith, seasonal customs and others. Also, the village shows various places with unique features such as a farming village, private house, official districts, Confucian academy, seodang (village school), and a village street in realistic descriptions, as well as, a nobleman’s house and traditional workshop.
You can also get a close look at numerous workshops doing their jobs, demonstrating centuries-old craftsmanship in the art of pottery, blacksmith, bamboo craft, traditional Korean paper manufacturing, wooden craft, glazed pottery, straw craft, willow craft, handheld fans, paper craft, cotton looms, silk looms, straw shoes, smoke pipes, and brassware.
In addition, the village offers farmer’s music and dance, acrobatics on a tightrope, and a traditional wedding ceremony on a daily basis. A traditional marketplace offers the exotic flavors of Korean cuisine from different regions.
