  • Huge square which we often see in the news and pictures, the square is beautiful in that old soviet era kind of way, interesting to walk through and see the stone buildings and bright slogans.

  • I thought this was just a normal square to worship the great leader but boy was I wrong! After the great one himself cured all our diseases he preceded to anally violate all of the children on our school trip in the name of the Great Republic! Then he flew away on a rainbow made of labour tears and all the food needed to feed our country. So enlightening. just wish I wasn't in work camp now
  • The best place I've even been! I had so much fun worshiping the supreme leader! The air only tasted like iPhone 3's a LITTLE bit.
  • Its north korea its the dumping ground of all things crappy
  • Best place I have ever been, u just need to say "long live Kim Jong un" and cry, the friendly solider will give u 5 cent. I stay there for a week and become a millionaire, guess that's why North Koreans are rich.
  • It's not as trendy as the newer Kim Jong-il Round, but still kind of a cool place to hang.
