  • It is part of one of the two monumental architectural axis shaping Pyongyang. Built on the basis of the "enlightened guidance:" Dear Leader "(Kim Jong-Il-who Centre) shows how dark the past grows brave new world.

  • This is a wonderful place at all times of the day, in the morning you might be able to spot the local wildlife, consisting of orphan children and lost tourists, as they are being cleaned up by the guards. Later in the day a grouping will occur, this is really something else. The locals will gather in a crowd and start shouting "CHING CHONG CHANG PING PONG PANG", they will then go home to give way for the evening event, the main attraction. The guards will round up the square of those who wish to stay a little longer, after the locals start running. Then you will be able to adhere to your own execution. I rate North/Korea.
