Economic Development & Construction

Pyongyang Subway

Along with a new, great golden age of construction, Pyongyang is being spruced up as the days go by, and a lot of monumental edifices like the Rungna People’s Pleasure Ground, Munsu Water Park, Sci-Tech Complex, Mirae Scientists Street and Ryomyong Street have been erected.

Such changes are visible not only on the ground but also under the ground.

The Pyongyang Subway which was constructed between the 1970s and the 1980s has rendered a great contribution to the traffic improvement of the city. Every station of the subway is beautifully laid out with large mosaics and bas-reliefs which portray the development of socialist Korea and happy life of the Korean people. This is why the people like the Pyongyang Subway from its opening.

In recent years the subway underwent significant changes.

Jonsung and Samhung stations above the ground were refashioned two years ago when Ryomyong Street sprang up as an energy-saving and green street, and Kaeson and Thongil stations were recently remodelled.

They look splendid with gorgeous architectural styles and decorations of the ceilings, walls, floors and pillars. New illumination effects and appliances are introduced to make surroundings brighter and softer. TVs and benches are newly installed to provide the people with convenience.

People say in unison that the refashioned stations of the Pyongyang Subway look attractive and they are anticipating further changes.
