  • The ancient fortress is the most interesting historical site in the city of Chinzhu. Located in a picturesque hilly landscape above the river, on a steep bank. The area is very large. In fact, it is a park with beautifully reconstructed buildings of the old fortress, which was once here. The fortress is famous for the tragic events that took place during the Japanese aggression in Korea in the late 16th century. It is a symbol of the patriotism and resilience of the Korean people. Defenders of the fortress became national heroes. All the architectural objects in the fortress park are expressive and beautiful: several gates, pavilions in the traditional style, gazebos, administrative manor complexes, temples. There is also the National Jinju Museum (in a modern building). The territory of the fortress park is very beautiful in the spring, when there are many flowering trees.

  • This was a strong historically linked to the Japanese invasion of 1592. I was fortunate to visit him during the Yudeung Festival. The entrance of the fort is an ancient and authentic door, the hosts of this festival greeted us with old Korean costumes. There were different scenes depicted by very large and colorful figures made of fabric and paper, we also visited part of the old fort that still stands, the view towards the river is spectacular with so many ornaments of the boats as well as floating ornaments in the Air:

  • Nice calm place. . Needs 3 hours at max to cover everything. An animated 3D video show in Korean language about war over the oceans. With English subs would have been helpful for tourists. Everything else is good.
  • Nice view and explanations for foreign visitors. Winter is also nice to visit.
