Imjingak Park is a place where the sorrow caused by the Korean War occurred in June 1950 and the conflict between the south and the north of Korea remains in.

It runs through bedrock at a depth of about 73m (240ft) below ground. It is apparently designed for a surprise attack on Seoul from North Korea. The 3RD Tunnel, located in 52km distant from Seoul, was found in 1978 which could make 30,000 soldiers move per hour.From 2002 for tourists, the shuttle elevator (option for private tour), and the high-tech system’s DMZ theater have been installed and the diversity of sightseeing things are provided.

The theater also features a documentary on the ecology of the DMZ (7 minutes). The Special Exhibition Hall displays photographs and other materials regarding rare species found within the DMZ.

Dorasan Station will play the role of customs and entry for Chinese and Russian people and goods as well as the North Koreans if Gyeongui Line Railroad connection is completed and the traffic is possible between two Koreans. Also, Dorasan Station contains the historical meaning as a symbolic place of the division between two Koreans and a gateway of the south-north exchange.
Panmunjeom is located about 60 km northwest of Seoul along with the United Nation Command Military Armistice Commission (UNCMAC). Originally, the area used to be called “Neolmun-ri”. However, the area was designated as a new location for armistice talks in October, 1951, and the name of the area was written in Chinese as Panmunjom for the convenience of Chinese representatives.
As of today, Panmunjeom refers to the Joint Security Area (JSA), a 400m x 800m rectangular area, set up on the Military Demarcation Line within the UNCMAC compound and reserved for talks between the United Nations Command (UNC) and its Communist counterparts (North Korea and China). When the JSA was first created, UNCMAC officials from both sides were allowed to move freely within the Area. However, that is not the case anymore with the enforcement of the dividing line (or the MDL) within the JSA in the wake of the ‘Axe Murder Incident of 18th August, 1976.
