Ryugyong Hotel, at 270 metres height and 105 floors dominates the skyline of Pyongyang and oddly enough this building is totally invisible to every North Korean you would ask about it and it has been removed from maps and guide books many years ago.
This massive structure was build in the 1980:s but was never completed and it has now stood for two decades as a monument of failure.
The decay has been going on for so long that even if an effort was now made to save it it’s too late. There are no windows, pipes, lighting or fixtures and the building is no more than an empty shell. An abondoned crane still sits at the top.
Ryugyong Hotel is still waiting for its first guest.
Directions: in the centre of Pyongyang, you can't miss it
