INTRODUCE

“Never-returning Island” where you can see the Royal Family’s exile history


“回不去的岛”,在这里你可以看到王室贵族的流亡史

 
Originally Gyodongdo Island’s name was “Daewoondo Island”. It had been called “Go-rym” or “Dal-ul Shin”, and after Goguryeo made “Hyun” as an administrative district it was called “Gomokgeunhyun”. Finally, King Gyeongdeok of Silla called it “Gyodongdo Island” and it is still called that today. Gyodongdo Island is the 14th largest island in Korea. It is near North Korea, only 5km toward a northwestern direction, so we can see Yeonbaek-gun, Hwanghae-do and North Korea directly across the sea. That is why this island has been restricted to civilians.

 

乔桐岛原来叫“戴云岛”。也曾被叫做高林、或者达乙新,高句丽时第一次设置了县,称它为高木根县,新罗景德王改名为乔桐县,一直沿用至今。乔桐岛是我国第14大岛屿。西北方向不到5Km处就是大海,与北韩接壤,黄海道的延白郡也近在眼前。因此一度禁止普通民众出入。


In history, Gyodongdo Island is close to Seoul and the tide around was high and ships could not approach so it was a place for the royal family’s exile. Prince Anpyong, Yeonsangun, Gwanghaegun, Youngchangdaegun, and Neungchangdaegun who deposed crown Princess Park are among them. And, they did not come back alive so this island was called “Never-returning Island”. There are some fertile plains so this island looks like a rural area rather than a fishing village. Gyodongdo Island produces rice, bean, garlic, red pepper, etc., as well as crabs and shrimps, and its mullets are famous. Plus, the oyster industry is brisk.

 

乔桐岛临近首尔,周边潮流暗涌,船很难靠近,因此曾被作为王室贵族们的流放地。安平大君、燕山君、光海君、永昌大君、綾昌大君以及被废黜的妃嫔朴氏等王室贵族都被流放到这里,让他们在有生之年回不去因此又被称为“回不去的岛”。岛上处处都是肥沃的平原,因此这里更像是一个农村而不是渔村,在乔桐岛上生产大米、豆子、大蒜和辣椒,沿岸的花蟹、大虾和鲻鱼也很有名。牡蛎养殖业也很发达。


Gyodongdo Island, which is historically distinguished as the exile place for the royal family, is having a project to builda modern cultural space. In the area around Daeryong-ri and Gogu-ri, many kinds of historical exhibition facilities and parking lots will welcome travelers to learn about Gyodongdo Island’s history in a friendly atmosphere.

 

历史上曾是王室贵族流放地的乔桐岛,带着这种历史的特征发展了近代文化空间产业。乔桐面大龙里和高句丽一带建设各种历史展览馆,修建停车场等,使得游客可以更方便的过来了解乔桐岛的历史。
