Jeongdongjin Hourglass Park
Train, sea, romance, memories are things that come to mind when thinking of Jeongdongjin
Jeongdongjin Hourglass Park is a sunrise spot with the world's largest hourglass which has a diameter of 8.06 meters, a width of 3.20 meters and a sand weight of 8 tons.
Every midnight on December 31st, you can see a huge hourglass rotating to greet the New Year.
The relationship between Jeongdongjin and the Hourglass began in the 1990s, with the fame of the popular korean drama “ Hourglass ” ‘which was filmed in Jeongdongjin.
Jeongdongjin station that has Guinness record as the nearest station to the sea, received explosive attention with the short scene where the drama character walked on the platform. Since then, the footsteps of those who have not forgotten the inspiration of the drama have continued and 'Hourglass' became the trademark of Jeongdongjin.
Walking from Jeongdongjin Hourglass Park to Jeongdongjin beach, you will reach Jeongdongjin station. To explore this course a little differently, take a rail bike that runs on the rail by stepping on pedals. It moves without much effort and you can enjoy the charm of Jeongdongjin because its speed is not that fast.
From the railway station facing the sea, to the waves pushed by the white sand, and the hourglass that counts time 365 days a year, your sense can be renewed at this place, filled with romantic element.
"Jeongdongjin Time Museum"
It is an exhibition space in the form of a train in the park and it is place where you can meet various stories related to time and the history of clocks. I can think once again about the importance of every moment of my life through the stories of people who have tried to measure and understand the concept of time.
