Gwangju, one of Korea’s largest cities, is known for its political history and creativity. It’s considered the birthplace of Korean democracy as it was home to the May 18 Democratic Uprising – a 1980 mass protest against South Korea’s then-authoritarian military government. Art abounds thanks to a wealth of museums, exhibitions and festivals that are bolstered by civic investment.
