Liugong Island 刘公岛 Shandong Province

Liugong Island is located Weihai Bay, at the east end of Shandong Peninsula. It is very close to downtown Weihai City, only 20 minutes distance by tour ship.

刘公岛,位于威海湾口,距市区旅游码头2.1海里,乘船20分钟可到达。

1888年,北洋海军成军时,在岛上设电报局、水师学堂、建北洋海军提督署、建码头,成为中国近代第一支海军北洋水师的诞生地。

1894年,中日甲午海战就发生在该岛东部海域。如今,它成为著名的旅游观光地。

Archaeological evidence suggests that the island has been inhabited at least from the Warring States Period onwards. During the times of the Han Dynasty, the island was settled by members of the Liu family which resulted in the present-day name.

Liugong Island is not only a traveling destination but is also the birthplace of the first modern navy force in China and the home of China's first forest park on the sea.

Museum of Sino-Japanese War
http://www.lvwo.com/bbs/viewthread.p...extra=page%3D2

Besides the stunning seashore scenery, Liugong Island is well-known for a tragic military defeat. In 1894, Japan launched an invasive war against China, also called the Jiawu War. Liugong Island serves as a memorial of this influential sea battle. The museum takes the Beiyang Navy and Sino-Japanese War of 1894 as its theme. Many other sites and cultural artifacts of the Jiawu War remain here, such as the Headquarters of the Beiyang Navy, Memorial Hall of Beiyang Soldiers, marines and three emplacements. In addition, there is also a Sino-Japanese Sea Battle Demonstration Museum, which wholly displays the history of Beiyang Navy with buildings, sculptures and paintings.

Waxworks vividly illustrated the scene of the Sino-Japanese War.

中国甲午战争博物馆





甲午战争历时9个月,分为陆战和海战两个战场,日军攻下朝鲜的平壤,在黄海海战中大败北洋水师,之后又攻下清朝的旅顺、威海,并于1894年11月22日在旅顺进行大规模屠杀,血洗全城。

战后双方于战后签订《马关条约》,规定清政府向日方割地赔款,清政府因此背负沉重外债,国力日趋衰退,沦为半殖民地半封建国家。

而日本因获得巨额战争赔款,国力军力迅速强盛,并逐渐走上军国主义对外扩张侵略之路。



这是北洋水师的七位女眷、三个孩子。当刘公岛被攻破以后,为了不被日本人凌辱,全部跳井殉难。

Besides, the fresh air on the island, the agreeable climate, the small fluctuation of the temperature between the day and night, and an annual average temperature of 12℃, make it an ideal place for tourism, summer resort and recuperation.
