The city of Sokcho has a unique local culture. Sandwiched between Mt. Seoraksan and the East Sea, it experiences both the lifestyle of the mountains and the sea. It is influenced by the Abai Village, which was a settlement created by North Korean refugees during the Korean War. The unique folk cultures can be viewed at the Sokcho City Museum and the Displaced Civilians Folk Village. Visitors can also experience seasonal rituals and events, North Korean cultural programs, and other museum cultural programs.
