  • The Juche take on communism with the artist’s brush is unique and interesting. The monuments out of concrete blocks are in their own way awe inspiring.  more »
  • This is definitely a must see with a local guide explaining the hammer, sickle and writing brush. Emblem represents workers, farmers and intellectuals that are the foundation of the DPRK.  more »

  • I went here to support the amazing leader! I love this place. 10/10 would starve again. (Please help me. Kim jong has a gun to my head.)
  • Very popular monument. Very clean and beautiful to see in real life. The statues are really big. The parking is easy and and there's lots to see you while you walk around. Definitely recommend coming here with friends and family on one of your tours. Just make sure to bring an umbrella for shade as it's all outside.
