North Korea

Knowledge of the People's Republic of Korea is limited in the West. North Korea, literally meaning "the Land of Morning Calm",  is very often forgotten of its past, still marked by Confucian culture till today. On the tour you will find people are proud of the history of the Koguryo Kingdom and their poetic landscapes. North Korea is not a typical holiday destination, but you have to see it. In the Korean War almost completely destroyed capital Pyongyang was rebuilt along socialist lines. The center of the city belongs to the people, with a theater, a well-maintained museum, a children's palace, a library and other public buildings, spacious parks, monuments and fountains. The apartment blocks are uniform, but tidy, the traffic flow sparse, lacking business streets. On this unique tour, you not only visit the royal tombs, a Buddhist temple, a swimming beach and the international friendship exhibition which is located in a magnificent scenic mountain (the mountain is pilgrimage destination for the Koreans), but also watch the artistic performance Arirang with the grand setting.
