This is a seriously impressive monument. From a distance it looks ‘Wow!’ But up close it’s even more awesome. It’s also a good view from the monument of the surrounding area. Definitely worth a 10 minute stroll around.

This marvellous monument to the foundation of the Korean Workers Party stands in front of red apartment blocks which represent a rippling red flag.

Its ok but somehow doesn't have the magnificence of some of the other monuments in Pyongyang.. Even the local guide was struggling a little to enthuse about it as she went through her well rehearsed script on the subject. I dd really like the murals...More

If I would have to pick a landmark in Pyongyang, this would be my favourite: the size, the symbology, the construction... Definitely, a must see!

Located directly across the Taedong River from the Mansu Hill Grand Monument, allegory takes center stage here as yet another Communist-inspired structure dots the landscape of Pyongyang. The symbolism was well known: a hammer for the industrial workers, a sickle for the farmers, and a...More

Nothing to really see up close but the party symbol is impressive when viewed from a distance, weather permitting. We did get a very brief 'tour' from a worker.

Just another monolith spreading the good word to the populace. Nothing of particular note from an artistic or beauty prospect but worth seeing.
