Ok its not the Moscow metro but they have tried hard to replicate it. It is grand - at least the two stations you get to see are. I question whether its a real chance to get close to the locals as there is no...More

This is a "must-visit" for all foreign visitors to North Korea. Actually, practically all tours to North Korea would take tourists to take Pyongyang metro! However, it seems that everyone is only allowed to take the metro for one stop, and thus, viewing only two...More

You wouldn’t think the world’s deepest subway system would be a signature activity in the world’s most secretive country, but by the time I toured this attraction with my guides I was used to these seemingly incongruous associations. Constructed largely in the 1960’s and 1970’s,...More

Loved this site!! It is so deep underground and gorgeous when you arrive. Newspapers are posted and all the locals are gathered around.
