It just seems intriguing because it's "mysterious" North Korea. It looks a hell of alot better than Brasilia in my opinion. Brasilia is the ugliest city I've ever seen pictures of.

I think its a 7, just a little lower than your 8. Most of the comments have been harsh and uncalled for about this city and country. Its hard to judge a city when you try and compare it to others. This country has had its problems so I think we should take that into account when we judge it!

GOD IS GOOD!

I know that to most people this place appears bland and crappy, which it does, but I still like it. Pyongyang just fascinates me. (9, 9.5, or 10, still have trouble deciding)

Visually, it isn't a bad skyline at all. People here are too busy rating the country, not the skyline.

It's a perfectly respectable skyline, with a lot more variation than is generally associated with commie blocks, but it's also a fake one. Nobody lives in many of those buildings. Some of them haven't even been fully built or kept structurally sound. During the day it may be an impressive array of architecture, but at night it looks like a dead, gloomy suburb of a real city in a poor country somewhere. They can't even supply electricity to parts of the city at night.

The roads are beautiful and well-planned, but nobody drives on them. Lots of people walk, but there's no atmosphere. It's a sterile, totalitarian society. The only redeeming feature at the street level would be the public transit. The stations and trains are reminiscent of old Soviet design, and they have a certain charm to them.

6 for the skyline, but I would rather live many other places.
