A Representation of the Pinnacle of 18th Century Military Architecture

Immerse yourself in Korea's history and take a half-day tour to a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Surrounding the center of Suwon, Hwaseong Fortress was built in the late 18th century by King Jeongjo to house the remains of his late father, Prince Sado. Scientifically constructed out of bricks and stone, the defensive wall remains 75% intact despite numerous invasions and wars in Korea over the past century. The structure includes a variety of military facets such as turrets, floodgates, and sentry towers.

Hwaseong Haenggung Palace

A Haenggung is a temporary retreat located outside the capital where the King and the royal family would find refuge during the war. King Jeonjeo would visit the Hwaseong Haenggung to worship his father's tomb and allowed him to continue safely running the country at a time of military conflict. A large feast was also held in celebration of his mother's 60th birthday.

The palace is now used as a venue for cultural performances and activities, and even shooting locations for Korean dramas and films.


  • Did you know that Suwon Hwaseong Fortress was carefully designed by scholar Jeong Yakyong and was built on both flat and hilly terrain, allowing for the maximization of military defensive efficacy. This structure has greatly influenced the development of Korean architecture and urban planning.
