Ice Carving Festival – a Winter fairytale at Namsangol Hanok Village

On display within Namsangol Hanok Village, beautiful ice sculptures can be enjoyed until Jan 20, 2014. A wonder for the eyes and adding some Winter magic to this traditional Korean village outdoor museum

Seoul Ice Carving Festival Namsangol Hanok VillageNamsangol Hanok Village is a great and easy way to discover the traditional Korean housing and village lifestyle. With its convenient location mid-way between Myeong-dong (shopping district) and Namsan Park, this free outdoor folk village is a must-see attraction if you have only a couple of hours and don’t want to go all the way to the larger Korean Folk Village in Yongin City.

During our latest visit, we marveled at the blue-ice sculptures specifically crafted for the temporary Ice Carving Festival which will last only until Jan 20, 2014. The ice area is on the main square – and though not very large it is already quite impressive. And beautiful too!
