The ‘40-step Culture & Tourism Theme Street‘ is a 450m-street which starts from the Jungang-dong branch office of KB Bank and runs to the 40-step stairway of the ’40-step Cultural Center’ and continues on to the Palseong Tour.
The time-honored 40-step stairway embodies the joys and sorrows of refugees and those displaced by the Korean War. The entire area has been recently renovated to reflect life in Korea in the 50s and 60s and is expected to become another major tourist spot.
The ’40-step Culture & Tourism Theme Street’ was designated ‘The Best Street’ by the Busan municipal government in June 2004.
