Kim Il-sung Square, Pyongyang

(3.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
The largest plaza in North Korea, Kim Il-sung Square takes central stage for military parades and other national celebrations. A massive area, the square boasts several buildings, including the national art gallery. On the opposite side, across the river, a landmark tower boldly overlooks the wide square. Some say the space can host over 100,000 people at once. Plan your Kim Il-sung Square visit and explore what else you can see and do in Pyongyang using our Pyongyang itinerary maker.

  • This is the place where the most important celebrations, we have just been here when there was a demonstration, virtually all Koreans come to such events, and of course the most important thing is the mausoleum not experienced hikers sizes

  • 又是一個很洗腦的景點。廣場很大很乾淨。當時只有我們這一團二十多個人佔據整個大廣場。面對大同江,微風徐徐的吹著,很舒服!  more »

  • 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.
