This is probably the most famous site in Pyongyang. A 20m statue of Kim Il Sung, flanked by two other sculptures. As you want to keep your guides in good mood you are supposed to buy flowers for 5 Euro and bow in front of the statue. Don't get me wrong: You don't have to. But it is,... let's say expected.....

Directions: On Mansu Hill. You can't miss it.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
