Suwon Hwaseong fortress
Hwaseong Fortress was constructed as an act of filial devotion by Jeongjo, the 22nd king of the Joseon Dynasty
(1392~1910), and to strengthen his power, eradicate party conflict, and fortify the southern area of the capital. The
fortress sprawls over both flat and hilly terrain, something seldom seen in neighboring China and Japan. It is designed
to serve political and commercial as well as military functions and is a fine example of oriental fortresses.

 

 





Suwon Hwaseong fortress
Hwaseong Fortress was constructed as an act of filial devotion by Jeongjo, the 22nd king of the Joseon Dynasty (1392~1910), and to strengthen his power, eradicate party conflict, and fortify the southern area of the capital. Construction was started along Mt.Paldalsan in January 1794 and completed in September 1796 under the supervision of Chae Je-gong, a former minister and the magistrate of Yeongjungchubu County. During construction, equipment such as the Geojunggi, a type of traditional Korean crane, and potters’ wheels were developed and used to transport and assemble large stones. The fortress suffered partial damage during Japanese colonial rule and the Korean War, but most of its original features have been restored with the help of the Hwaseong Seongyeokuigwe, the construction archive published in 1801 after the fortress was completed. The fortress sprawls over both flat and hilly terrain, something seldom seen in neighboring China and Japan. It is designed to serve political and commercial as well as military functions and is a fine example of oriental fortresses.

































Korean Folk Village
The Korean Folk Village is home to numerous collections of Korean cultural artifacts, providing an opportunity for Korean children to experience and learn the culture of their ancestors firsthand. The site provides a venue to promote traditional Korean culture to both domestic and international visitors, and provides an open-air learning place for succeeding generations. The village has been developed to convey the wisdom and the spirits of our ancestors to both domestic and international tourists.
The lifestyle of Korean people, with a history extending back more than 5,000 years, abruptly changed following the Kabo Peasant War (1894), the Japanese invasion of Korea (1910-1945), and the Korean War (1950-1953). When the Korean economy surged in the 1960s, the Office of Cultural Properties started to value the establishment and operation of a folk museum. The economy, society, and culture in Korea underwent a tremen-dous change in pursuit of the Saemaeul Movement (movement for regional development), promoted nationwide in the 1970s. During this period, the government, influenced by the Foreigners' Tourism Promotion Policy, formedan advisory council on January 15, 1972 to research the establishment of the Korean Folk Village. Accordingly, the Korean Folk Village was foundedon May 8, 1973, and the privatization of the Folk Village was officiallyapproved by the government on September 18, 1973
