Korea North Travel Guide and Korea North Travel Information - TravelPuppy.com
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea shares borders with the Yellow Sea, the Sea of Japan, China and the demilitarised zone (separating it from the Republic of Korea).

Pyongyang is the capital of Korea North which was completely rebuilt after the Korean War as a city of spacious avenues, nicely designed parks and massive marble public buildings.

The Grand Theatre, the Juche Tower, the Palace of Culture and the Ongrui Restaurant are all furnished with the Korean variant of Communist architecture. The Arch of Triumph and the Gates of Pyongyang, built in honour of Kim Il-Sung's 70th birthday are particularly attractive.

The ancient buildings in Kaesong which is about 6 hours from the capital by train, bear witness to Korea's 500-year-old imperial history. The town is encircled by stunning pine-clad hills.

Kumgangsan is the country's largest national park, comprising a variety of mountains, known as 'the Diamond Mountain' along the east coast of the country.

A night at the opera offers an unusual experience. There are some circuses and musical events of a high quality available.
