krGangwon-do (Korean pronunciation: ka?.w?n.do) is a province of South Korea, with its capital at Chuncheon. It is bounded on the east part by the East Sea, and borders Gyeonggi Province to its west, and North Gyeongsang Province and North Chungcheong Province to its south.
Its northern boundary is the Military Demarcation Line, separating it from North Korea’s Kangw?n Province. Before the division of Korea in 1945 Gangwon and Kangw?n formed a single province. Pyeongchang County hosted the 2018 Winter Olympics and 2018 Winter Paralympics.
