DMZ: Symbol of peace in Korean Peninsula

What's the DMZ? After more than 60 years of the suspended war, the DMZ became the site of history, the symbol of world-peace and natural environment.

What is the DMZ?

The DMZ(Demilitarized Zone) was created in 1953, when the Korean War was not yet stopped but suspended, and South and North Korea agreed to withdraw each army by 2km to the north and south, respectively, with the MDL (Military Demarcation Line) as the center. It stretches 248km long from the west (Paju-si, Gyeonggi-do) to the east(Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do) of Korea.
After more than 60 years of the suspended war, the DMZ became the site of history, world-peace and natural environment. Especially, Paju city in Gyeonggi-do, where is the center of the DMZ tour, attracts tourists from all around the world with accessibility from Seoul. You can visit and see what has happened and how it will be.

Joint Security Area(JSA)
Panmunjeom, which is a 90-minute drive away from Seoul, is a joint security area (JSA) located in the DMZ in Jinseo-myeon of Paju City. On April 27, 2018, under the agenda of “Peace, a New Beginning”, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un of the State Affairs Commission held an inter-Korea summit in the truce village of Panmunjom, which resulted in the adoption of the “Panmunjeom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula”. It is a historically meaningful place where the two leaders worked out an agreement on improving South and North Korean relations including building a permanent framework for peace.
