One of the most renowned attractions in Suwon is Haengnidan Street, a name derived from the fusion of haenggung (temporary palace) and Gyeongnidan Street.

Thanks to its popularity on social media, Haengnidan Street bustles with energy, drawing in couples and tourists alike. Located along the trail of Hwaseong Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the street is renowned for its charming cafes, workshops, and various shops which blend style with a historic ambience, making it truly unique among cities. Don't miss the opportunity to explore this street, where fashion, delectable cuisine, and history converge!

Transformation into a Hip Café Street


Haenggung-dong is a district that encompasses 12 legal-status neighborhoods around Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon. It extends from Paldalsan Mountain to the East Gate of the Fortress, and from Gyodong Sageori to the North Gate.

The vicinity of the Temporary Palace at Hwaseong Fortress, previously designated as a restricted development area, is characterized by aging houses and traditional hanok structures. However, a transformative change occurred with the initiation of the EcoMobility World Festival in 2013, aimed at revitalizing the deteriorating local environment. This led to the renovation of alleyways, restoration of old signboards, and overall enhancement of the surrounding landscape. The beautiful nighttime scenery of Hwaseong Fortress and the Haenggung-dong alleys gained significant attention on social media, primarily due to the Suwon Culture Night program that commenced in 2017.

Since then, numerous establishments, including cafés, restaurants, self-photo studios, workshops, boutiques, and pubs have been established. Old buildings that were once used as residences, fortune-telling venues, and corner shops have been creatively remodeled so that they retain their original architectural charm. As a result, Haengnidan Street has evolved into a trendy and vibrant alleyway, drawing visitors from far and wide.

Scenic Beauty Meets History

Haengnidan Street, nestled along Hwaseong Fortress in Suwon, boasts a diverse array of shops, including restaurants, cafés, workshops, and shops selling small, cute items. Stretching from Hwaseo Park to Hwahongmun Gate, this charming street naturally integrates into the residential area, creating a vibrant atmosphere. Many distinctive cafés line the street, with rooftop cafés being particularly popular. They offer visitors the opportunity to savor panoramic views of the fortress from an open-air vantage point.

But Haengnidan Street isn't just about cafés. It is also home to Hwaseong Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can explore the curved fortress, taking a leisurely stroll along its historic walls. You can also climb to the Banghwasuryujeong Pavilion, which offers sweeping vistas of the fortress. As day turns into night, the road between Hwaseomun Gate and Janganmun Gate is gracefully illuminated, creating an enchanting and antique atmosphere for all to enjoy.

Murals and Night Views


Adjacent to Haengnidan Street, you'll find the captivating Haenggung-dong Mural Village. With vibrant murals adorning the walls of its quaint, old-fashioned alleyways, stepping into this neighborhood is like entering a time capsule. These artworks contribute to the street's visual appeal, creating a nostalgic yet joyful atmosphere.

Throughout the village, you'll encounter numerous photo-worthy spots, intriguing sculptures gracing the walls, roofs, and fences, and even historic houses that have been charmingly transformed into cafés. A must-visit is the birthplace of Na Hye-seok, Korea's first female Western painter, who dedicated her life to women's rights. Her story is beautifully depicted in a mural, effectively turning the street into an open-air gallery. As the sun sets, Haengnidan Street transforms into an even livelier hub, with the evening glow casting a magical aura over the surroundings.
