The Arch of Reunification is a monument located on Reunification Street, Pyongyang. As the name suggests, the monument is dedicated to the hopes of a future unification of the Korean peninsula.

Constructed in 2001, the arch symbolises two Korean women dressed in traditional Korean Hanboks coming together to hold up the unified Korean peninsula. The arch marks the beginning of Reunification Highway, a road which goes all the way past Kaesong and into South Korea. Travellers will therefore pass through the arch on their way to the DMZ.
