  • Statue of a mythical winged horse, overcoming 500 km a day, which is many times larger than the fastest ordinary horse. It symbolizes the North Korean's unbridled movement towards victory and progress. The monument is close to the bronze statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, on the right side. Also visible from the triumphal arch.

  • Worth seeing and hearing about the idea behind it. Another monument but probably more meaningful and beautiful than others.  more »
