Pyongyang Metro

The Pyongyang Metro is one of the must visits when one travels to Pyongyang. Bizarre as it sounds, tour groups to other countries usually avoid the metro or subway system as means of transport, but not for North Korea. The Pyongyang Metro is a place of interest on it’s own. It is not only old

It was 2015 and it was our 2nd visit to the hermit kingdom of North Korea. We decided to return to this nation due the beautiful landscapes it offers and the unforgetable experience we had during our first visit in 2014. We went in October, just in time for the big celebration of the 70th
