Gyeongsangbuk-do (North Gyeongsang) is a province in eastern South Korea. The province was formed in 1896 from the northern half of the former Gyeongsang province, remained a province of Korea until the country's division in 1945, then became part of South Korea. The provincial capital and largest city is Daegu, which was the capital of Gyeongsang before 1896 and which is separately administered as a provincial-level Metropolitan City today.
Geography and climate
The province is part of the Yeongnam region, and is bounded on the east by the Sea of Japan (East Sea), on the south by Gyeongsangnam-do, on the west by Jeollabuk-do and Chungcheongbuk-do Provinces, and on the north by Gangwon-do Province. During the summer, Gyeongsangbuk-do is the hottest province in South Korea. This is helped by the fact that the province is largely surrounded by mountains: the Taebaek Mountains in the east and the Sobaek Mountains in the west.
Agricultural products of the province include rice, beans, potatoes, and barley. Apples from around Daegu are considered a speciality of the province. In addition, dairy farming exists in several districts, but there is also seaweed, shellfish, and cuttlefish.
Gyeongsangbuk-do is the homeland of the former kingdom of Silla and has retained much of its cultural tradition. A number of artists, political leaders and scholars have come from the province.
