It is astride south and the north on the Military Demarcation Line.
After the 1953’s armistice, on this bridge there was an exchange of prisoners.
The name was derived from the fact that the prisoners of war voluntarily in favor of choosing North Korea were unable to return to South Korea for good.
That is why it was called “Bridge of No Return”.
The last time the bridge was used for prisoner exchanges was in 1968, when the crew of the USS Pueblo was released and ordered to cross into South Korea via the bridge.
After the murder of two US soldiers in 1976, it was shutdown.
And At the end of either side of the bridge are guard houses of the respective countries.
