The Pyongyang Metro

Pyongyang is the capital of North Korea. This fascinating site is dedicated to its metro system. Make sure you take a look at the photographs of communist art on the station platforms. This kind of art is called Socialist Realism and can be found in present and former communist countries across the world. The style idealises the communist way of life. Typical paintings depict happy factory labourers, smiling farmers and rosy cheeked children- all working hard for the good of the state.
