|The Gold Scales Theme Street (Gongjicheon Resort) (황금비늘테마거리)|
|The city of Chuncheon is surrounded by Uiamho, Chuncheonho, and Soyangho lakes and is widely known as Hobanui Dosi (Lake City). Much like the Hangang Riverside Park is a representative landmark of Seoul, the Gongjicheon Resort is a beloved treasure of Chuncheon.
Within Gongjicheon Resort at the end of Gongjicheon Bridge you’ll find “The Street of Gold Scales,” a themed avenue based on the novel “Hwanggeumbineul” (The Gold Scales) by Korean author Lee OiSoo. Lee, a native of Chuncheon, drew much inspiration from Gongjicheon Stream and Uiamho, using the two locations as the setting of his bestselling novel “Hwanggeumbineul.” In recognition of the author’s literary works, the themed street is decorated with paintings, poems, and stories about the author.
Not just a place of interest for scholars, the area is also a favorite among nature lovers. The ring-road walkway by the lake is a favorite spot for weekend excursions and the nearby Sculpture Park, fountain, ferry boat, lakeside park, and outdoor performance stage offer plenty to see and do. In the surrounding area you’ll also find the Dohajugyo Bridge of King Jeongjo the Great, the War Memorial, Children's Hall, and a monument commemorating the participation of Ethiopia in the Korean War.
