"Puhung station (Rehabilitation station) "
“The Great Leader Kim Il Sung Among Workers.”
Pyongyang subway. Deep, very deep:120 meters below the surface! Two lines, old wagons in a DDR style.
All the 17 stations have names like Triumphant Return, Reunification, Paradise, Glory...i do not know how people reminds the names!
>the official speech:
The Pyongyang Metro was opened to traffic in September 1973.
The metro has a greater transport capacity than other means of passenger traffic and gets a large share in guaranteeing the smoothness of traffic in the city of Pyongyang.
It fans out in all directions of the city and every citizen has easy access to its service. In constructing the metro, considerable thought was given to the prospect of the city’s development. It links districts with each other and the city centre with the suburbs.
The stations are within easy reach of squares, parks, stadiums and pleasure grounds and bus and trolley bus stops in the city.
Each station is equipped with escalators.
The high ceilinged stations are well-ventilated and this makes the passengers feel refreshed.
Each station offers an individual architectural style.

Her job is just to press the elevator button for the few tourists who visit the place. So she must do a lot of waiting and, I guess, read a lot of books. Of course, about Kim Jong-Il, Kim Il-Sung and the Revolution.

The Grand People's Study House is the central library of North Korea, near Kim Il Sung Square.

They claim it has 30 million books and documents, including foreign language ones. Some people take courses there as well (I personally saw english, russian and computing classes).
