This bridge is a very good reconstruction of the original one. The bridge is an stunning architectonic example of the Silla civilization. The bridge combines white, red, and green colors. The roofs are stunning. It has two floors and you can walk through the bridge for free. The bridge looks impressive at day and night times and you can take wonderful pictures with the reflection of the bridge on the river. Also cross the river through the stone paths nearby. It is very safe and from these paths you can take phenomenal pictures of the bridge.

The bridge is close to the traditional Korean neighborhood and the National Museum. Everything is walking distance.

We visited during day time and had a coffee with view to the bridge. We went back at night; we had dinner in a close by restaurant and the view of the bridge was lovely.

Weather was good!

The bridge was fully restored at the time of our visit. It is a great place to relax and feels very peaceful. Near to Gyeongju cultural village. Do cater around 5mins to visit the second level of the bridge tower near to the village.

The bridge is very scenic, and part of a large area of refurbished and well maintained archeological sites, including a National Museum, a park full of Silla Empire tombs, one of which is excavated and open as a museum exhibit, a medieval observatory, and a further walk away, a pagoda. The main city centre is also within walking distance. The city itself is billed as a living museum, which it comes close to fulfilling.

We walked to the bridge from the museum and crossed over into the village. The bridge itself was a huge structure solidly built replica of the original from the Shilla dynasty. It was brightly painted and in great condition since it was only recently reconstructed. This bridge crossed Muncheon Stream that purportedly gives the appearance that the sand is flowing upstream while the water is flowing downstream due to the river bed's sparkling quartz sand characteristics.

On the second floor was a small historical display about the bridge. However it was very dark inside and really could have used more light if they opened some of the windows. There were a number of video presentations and displays about the bridge history and construction. There were only a couple other visitors inside besides myself and since it was located at the end of the bridge farthest away from the village not many people may have been willing to walk across.

Performers wearing traditional costumes were either dancing or playing musical instruments on the bridge entrance closes to the village and matched the performances going on inside the village. More people were gathered here.

One of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. Go down the river a bit and there is a crossing on rocks, it's the best spot for some epic pictures. You can go up in the 2 towers on both sides of the bridge. Beautiful decorated wooden beams, all green. Absolutely gorgeous.

Reconstructed between 2010 and 2016 to reflect similar bridge during Sila dynasty. Try and get pic of its reflection in the river and ensure you attend short videos on second floors at both ends of bridge.

The bridge has been reconstructed to look like it did back in the Silla dynasty. And they did a great job. It's absolutely beautiful. Make sure you walk across and if you're a history/reconstruction buff go up both ends of the towers to see the small displays up there. Make sure to walk down the river to the rock path crossing, too. That has good picture spots for the bridge and you can see fish swimming. The guide in the bridge told us the plates on the village side brought prosperity happiness and vitality if you stomped on them, and that in old times, only the royalty could use/cross the bridge to get to the treasures beyond. That no one else was allowed, so he made us kings and queens for the day so we could cross it. It was very cool. impressive architecture. Take water, good shoes, and your camera.

Definitely go at night and get photos. It's a little treacherous crossing the river on the stones because the lighting isn't great, so watch your kids. Still, very beautiful

it is not just about the bridge, even though it is beautiful.
There is also the folk village museum and there are very interesting riverside walks. I walked from the bridge back into the town centre, passing a lot of wildlife and a barrage.
