This beauty tower is around of the very nice view in front the Taedong river, The Juche Tower is the second tallest monumental column in the world after the San Jacinto Monument, which is 2.9 metres (9.5 ft) taller.

We went here to visit this hidden country, the tower of the Juche is a stunning place to visit at night because it's an emblem of the country

The tower provides nice views over Pyongyang. Nothing more, nothing less The tower has plates from supporting associations in the world for the Juche ideals. A lift will bring you up to the top. For 5 Euro per person.

The Juche Tower is a symbol of the Juche idea (national self reliance, literally “Master of one’s self”) penned by Kim Il Sung. For 5 euros you can catch the lift to the top of the Tower for spectacular views over Pyongyang.
