Introduction of Gwangju
Gwangju is the birthplace of a modern democratic movement in Korea. The history of civil resistance is well portrayed and preserved at the Square of Democracy, established in commemoration of the May 18 Democratic Uprising, and the National Cemetery. Today, Gwangju hosts the annual World Kimchi Culture Festival and Biennales. Other top tourist sites include the Mudeungsan Provincial Park and Chungjangno, known as “the street of youth.”
