May Road’ Linking May 18th Heritage Sites to be Created in Gwangju


A “May Road,” linking 27 historical heritage sites in Gwangju, will be constructed from July this year through May of next year.

With a total investment at 2.2 billion won, the May Road will be divided into five different courses themed after the May 18th Democratization Movement and its significance for the struggles for democracy.

Stretching out some 51.8 kilometers (a reference to the date, May 18th),) the courses will include different thematic heritage sites used by democratic activists and citizens’ troops in Gwangju, such as the front gate of Jeonam National University, the old Jeollanamdo provincial hall, the inter-city bus terminal and the Christian hospital.

The Christian hospital, the old Jeollanamdo Provincial Hall and the Nakdong Cathedral courses are the longest courses at 21.5 kilometers with 8 stops.

At Yangdong Market, installation structures that display citizen troops and merchants at the market who shared food with the troops will be erected along with information guidance.
