As Korea’s largest History Theme park, Baekje Cultural Land was built on an area of about 3,305,785m² in Gyuam-myeon, Buyeo-gun in Chungcheongnam-do between 1994 and 2010 in order to reenact and preserve the beauty of Baekje’s history and culture.

Other must-sees include the Living culture Village as well as Wiryeseong, where visitors can see the life of Baekje people who lived 1,400 years ago.
The Living culture Village shows the reproduction of Baekje’s houses where the nobility and commoners used to live, offering various themed experience programs. Wiryeseong displays a reproduction of Baekje during the era of Hanseong Baekje. Within the low fortress are a lookout tower, a royal place, and several houses of commoners.
In particular, Baekje Cultural Land holds a permanent performance dubbed “The Birth of Chiljido (the Seven-Branched Sword),” which describes conflicts with surrounding nations that envied Baekje’s great metal technology. The performance will be held twice a day, at 11 am and 2 pm.
