Life In Pyongyang, North Korea

Posting photos of this capital city of North korea is welcome but anti North Korea trolls please stay out.



Pyongyang (평양, Korean pronunciation: [pʰjɔŋjaŋ], literally: "Flat Land") is the capital of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, commonly known as North Korea, and the largest city in the country. Pyongyang is located on the Taedong River and, according to preliminary results from the 2008 population census, has a population of 3,255,388. The city was split from the South P'yŏngan province in 1946. It is administered as a directly governed city (chikhalsi), on the same level as provincial governments, not a special city (teukbyeolsi) as Seoul is in South Korea. (North Korea) (Wiki)

Arirang (Mass Games) performance, Pyongyang (North Korea) by Matt Paish 2012, on Flickr
Mass games or mass gymnastics are a form of performing arts or gymnastics in which large numbers of performers take part in a highly regimented performance that emphasizes group dynamics rather than individual prowess. The Grand Mass Gymnastics and Artistic Performance Arirang (Chosongul: 아리랑 축제, Hanja: 아리랑 祝祭) are held in the Rungrado May Day Stadium in Pyongyang, North Korea. The two-month gymnastics and artistic festival celebrates the birthday of Kim Il-sung (15 April). (Wiki) (North Korea)
