西等记忆From the 518 Memorial Cemetery, return to Gwangju Railway Station, and then change to Bus No. 48 to the Gwangju Folk Museum in the northern suburbs of Gwangju. The Folk Museum is located in a huge cultural park, and the Gwangju Art Museum is also here. Jeolla Province with Gwangju at its core and even the entire Honam area can be regarded as the Baekje Cultural Circle. Although agriculture and fisheries are developed, they have been a place for exiles since ancient times because of their relatively remote locations. This has also become the rebellious character of the residents of the Honam area. One reason for this. In short, it has a unique regional character, so the Folklore Museum, a folklore museum with a ticket of 500 won, is very large-almost on the same level as the National Museum of Folklore in Seoul. It is not only large in scale, but also rich in content. From fishing and woodworking to food, clothing, housing and transportation to weddings and funerals, everything you can think of about traditional folk customs is included here, and most of the explanatory texts on the panels are available in Chinese. But in fact, the most important thing is that this museum is really fun, it can be said to be more fun than the National Museum of Folklore in Seoul! The audience went from one scene to another in the exhibition hall. The most magnificent one was the large-scale scene of local folk entertainment in Gwangju... But this also proved from the side that the collections here are quite limited.
西等记忆To go to Wudeng Mountain, you must climb to the top of the mountain, or you can’t see the beautiful scenery at all. The hillside is no different from a normal mountain. For details, please refer to my travel notes. There should be few people climbing to the top of the mountain, but it’s really good. !
西等记忆It is free and open to the outside world, and there are various Chinese materials. The memorial hall in the cemetery uses pictures and videos (with Chinese version) to introduce in detail the Korean sensitive word movement that culminated in the Gwangju incident in the 1980s. At the end, it is carried out with contemporary political movements in other countries and regions such as Myanmar and Nepal. An analogy. If anyone intends to see the incident in the sensitive word square of the Tian Dynasty here with bad intentions, then they must be disappointed-the only thing related to the Tian Dynasty mentioned here is the 228 incident in Taiwan across the strait. Behind the towering 518 memorial is the cemetery for the victims of the Gwangju incident that were buried from various places, and the bunker-like building on the other side is a memorial room, which contains collected photos of the victims of the Gwangju incident-in fact It is not just the victims, many of the participants who did not die in the incident were also honored here after their deaths. Don't leave in a hurry after watching the memorial room. There is a wall of reliefs several hundred meters long in the cemetery. The content of the reliefs is naturally a contemporary historical tragedy like the Gwangju incident.
郭后生Songjeong Market is a traditional Korean market located in front of Songjeong Station in Gwangju. According to the grandmother in the market, the market was built in 1913. In just a few hundred feet of street, in addition to the vegetable and fruit shops and In addition to dry goods stores and butcher shops, there are now many literary coffee shops and cultural and creative souvenir shops, which are rare places to check in and take pictures.
西等记忆The Gwangju Folk Museum is just across the road to the north and is the Gwangju Museum, which is open for free, but this museum is not very fun. Compared with the magnificent folk museum, it looks boring and pedantic, but after all, it still sorts out the history of the Hunan region: it was the site of Mahan in the Sanhan era, and Gwangju was once the capital of Baekje in the Baekje era. Because it was in the middle of the maritime trade route from the Celestial dynasty to Japan via North Korea, it has also become an important export destination of the famous Goryeo celadon. Broadly speaking, it can be regarded as the northernmost section of the Maritime Silk Road.
