70' high amazing bronze statues made by the famous Mansudae Art factory which churns out these tributes and covers the country with them. You might not like what the message the hand over but you can't help admire the art.

This is a must visit on every trip to North Korea. Interesting with all the visitors and all the flowers being laid down.

An impressive monument of the eternal leaders. Nice to see how wedding couples go to have their photo taken in front of the monument. Also nice to see the school children in their cute uniforms bowing. You can also bring flowers if you like.

The pictures don't quite do them justice on just how large they are. There will be people placing flowers at the statues feet in huge vases, that are about 4 foot tall and you will have the option to place a bouquet yourself too. There...More

You'll be taken there during any tour of Pyongyang for a group photo. Memorable barely begins to describe it, one of the most amazing sights in an amazing country.

You can only go with an organised tour. Beijing based and British managed Koryo Group is a long established and reliable company with multiple tour options. I toured the DPRK twice with them and had an amazing time.
