There is an old saying, “Gangneung outside of Dongdaemun Gate.” which means if you move out of the Gate, Gangneung will be the best place to live. That is why Gangneung is a city where life, culture and arts come together.

and men” of Danoje festival was born. This route passes through Jungang Market where you can enjoy plenty of food. And walkers will be able to experience Korean history and culture on this route.
