On my recent trip to Korea, I got the opportunity to visit again Gwangmyeong cave in Gyeonggi-do. I was amazed with the improvements they did on this mining cave since the last time I’ve been there 2 years ago. They transformed it into an exhibition hall for enjoying art and history divided into many themes like “The Golden Room”, The Gate of Immortality”, The Golden Palace”, “The Golden Road” just to mention a few. The cave was constructed during the Japanese colonial era from 1912 to 1945, formerly called as Gahak mine. It was originally made for a purpose to mine gold, silver, copper and zinc. According to coal construction data the cave produced over a hundred kilograms of gold till 1972 when it had to be closed because of a huge flood that put this area under water for many years. The cave also served as a wine haven where in you can find many premium brands from all over the world. The temperature inside is perfect for wine storage; they even put a mini concert hall in it. You can imagine the natural echo you will be hearing when attending a concert here, Fantastic! But what I enjoyed the most are the art sculptures placed inside made by the winners of the annual art competition from different parts of the world. Gwangmyeong cave is a good place to visit and learn the past, present and future of this city!
