Introduction

The city of Busan served as a temporary capital during the Korean War. Seo-gu, the heart of Busan, especially had an important role, as the government and legislature offices as well as the presidential residence, were relocated to this area. Refugees from all over the country gathered to Busan during the war, sharing pain and comfort with one another, and also created Busan's unique scenery, "Sanbokdoro Road." Busan Night Tour includes exhibition and experience programs that take visitors on a tour around the remains of Korea's modern history, including the Provisional Capital Memorial Hall, Temporary Capital Memorial Street, Government Headquarters of the Temporary Capital (currently Seokdang Museum of Dong-a University), areas of Ami-dong Tombstone Cultural Village, and more.
