Google Earth is an endless suply of great photos!
Visit http://belitesti.myminicity.com or http://belitesti.myminicity.com/ind and help me develop my mini city!

Phenian or Pyongyang is the capital of North Korea. It may look ok, perhaps more than ok, but remember how the people of North Korea live and what harsh regime they have to endure. But we are here to talk about cities, so let's!









That is the world's largest stadium, with a capacity of 150.000 seats!



That tower is a hotel, I forgot it's name, I'll come back with that info!



Remember http://belitesti.myminicity.com, thank you!

Well I don't know how korean people name their places but where I come from it's pretty much common knowledge (Romania by the way). I don't know if you know or in the 2 Koreas they know, but in Europe we have two names for many presidents and cities in Asia! For North Korea we know for instance Kim Ir Sen or Kim Il Sung for the father and Pyongyang or Phenian for the capital city. Maybe it's like Keops and Hufu, one name from the greeks one from the egyptians, you know what I mean?

Like Beijing and Pekin, Saigon and Ho Chi Minh, Stalingrad and Sankt Peteresburg. Maybe it's no longer called Phenian but Pyongyang! I know both names!

You don't get to see many pictures of this shithole, so thanks for the thread.

The North Koreans must be coughing all day long, just look at those massive smog clouds...
It's a creepy city, especially the Ryugyong has some sorta apocalypse attitude to it.

I don't know about coughing but I can tell you they go blind from malnutrition! There are more blind or blinding people in NK than anywhere else on Earth! That's a sad reality! Also NK has some of the poorest environmental laws in the World, so smog clowds are obvious to occur!

In the meantime, please visit http://belitesti.myminicity.com and help me develop my online minicity! Just one click on the link and your job is done!
