Pohang Songdo ‘Songrim Theme Street’

Pohang Songdo derives its name from the past when pine trees were abundant in the area. Here, you can find the “Songrim Theme Street” created as part of Pohang City’s “Green Way” project, aimed at providing citizens with cultural enjoyment and relaxation.

In Pohang, where there are not many parks for healing in the woods, Songrim Theme Street stands out as one of the healing destinations in Pohang.
