  • Information
    Introduction
    Ganghwa Peace Observatory was constructed in the northern area of the Civilian Restricted Zone in Cheolsan-ri, Yangsa-myeon. Entry to this area was once strictly prohibited for the general public. Since it opened in 2008, the observatory has been providing accessibility to visitors to see the area's natural ecosystem. Ganghwa Peace Observatory also shows images related to the Korean War (1950-1953). The basement floor and fourth floor are used as a military facility.
    The observatory houses shops selling Ganghwa specialty food and North Korea’s specialty food, a management office, wishing wall for unification, and a rest area on the first floor, an exhibition hall to see the traces of war as well as high-technology binoculars on the second floor, and the observing facility to see the area of North Korea on the thrid floor, and a screen facility to show the entire view on cloudy days. The exhibition hall on the second floor presents Ganghwa’s military experience, North Korea’s provocation, comparison of military powers between South and North Korea, unification policy, and other war-related exhibitions. The observation area where one can see the land of North Korea includes Yeseonggang River, 2.3km long, Gaeseong Industrial Complex, the meeting point of Imjingang River and Hangang River, Aegibong Peak Observatory in Gimpo, Unification Observatory in Odusan Mountain, Paju, Ilsan new town, Songaksan Mountain, and other areas. In particular, Ganghwa which is home to history and culture is planning to offer the best service in tourism on a themed course which combines history and cultural sites for tourists who plan for a one day trip.
