The impressive 50 meter (164 feet) high Monument to the Korean Workers Party stands dedicated to the 50-year anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea. The monument shows three fists holding the sickle, brush, and hammer, which stand for farmers, intellectuals, and workers. The belt surrounding the fists symbolizes the unity of the leader, the Workers' Party, and the people. The site of the monument itself spans 25,000 square meters (6 acres), including a huge plaza in front that hosts dances and festivals.

  • We went here and had a personalised tour and explanation of the symbolism of the site. We were then taken to a "gallery" and bookstore behind the monument. The monument like everything in DPRK is mass...  read more »
  • A grand monument. The guide did a good job in explaining the history and ideas behind the party. Also a good location for pictures. 
  • Constructed in 1995 consists of a set of murals reliefs that depict the history of the Workers Party of Korea. The huge sculpture of symbolic tools rises above the base and represents the farmers, the...  read more »
  • Beautiful, absolutely beautiful, this is where my family was executed right in front of me for betraying our glorius leader and the camps add a real nice touch. The screams at night allow you to sleep like a baby; Also I forgot to mention the food, very good, although the flesh was a bit too raw for my taste. Overall I'd say it's a nice place to "vacation", 9/11(Beaches were filled with a bit too much barbed wire and various other obstacles).
  • Exactly as portrayed in "The Interview." The dog tasted great. 10/10 would visit the glorious leader again.
  • The Memorial is best visited on the 4th of July and when the Blue Angels are flying over head. Brings a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat!
  • As much as I enjoyed the monument, the guards in all areas of the capital were very rude. I did not understand why It was "not okay" to stand in front of Kim-Jong-Un's portraits, so I continued to do so until I was suddenly stuck by an officer! I'm not even black! Frustrated beyond belief, I pulled up my sleeves and blindly pointed to my pale skin color (consequently to my American flat tattoo), and the guard shoved a gun in my face! Never returning.
  • Awesome place to spend spring break at!! We started off by concentration camp hopping checking out all da hot chicks, definitely recommend the one in Pyongyang near the fake movie theater where the girls are a little autistic and malnourished. they shave them completely so they don't catch fleas from the rats they eat. A bit hot i think ;].. Also you gotta have that cat piss beer its refreshing after all the fake plastic food you eat. Enjoy
