Chaeryŏng County is a county in South Hwanghae province, North Korea.

Geography[edit]

Located on the Chaeryŏng River, the county is bordered to the west by Anak and Sinch'ŏn, to the south by Sinwŏn, and to the east by Ŭnp'a, Pongsan and Sariwŏn in North Hwanghae Province.

History[edit]

Chaeryŏng County was first founded by the kingdom of Koguryo, who called it Siksŏng (). Koguryo lost the area during the unification of Korea by the Koryo dynasty, who gave it its current name in 1217. In 1415 it was promoted to county level under the Yi. Chaeryŏng was briefly merged into the newly formed Hwanghae District in 1895 during an experimental redistricting, but was restored to its previous form in 1896. The county's current form was settled in the 1952 redistricting changes.

Transportation[edit]

The county is served by railway Line, which stops at Chaeryŏng and Kumsan Stations. There is also a highway which runs through Chaeryŏng Town.

Divisions[edit]

The county is divided into one town (ŭp), one worker's district (rodongjagu) and 24 villages (ri). [1]
