It wasn’t long ago that foreigners were allowed to only ride between two stations on Pyongyang’s subway system. But recent visitors were allowed to ride the whole system and take pictures.
Considered the deepest subway system in the world, it takes 4 minutes by escalator just to ride down to the platform. They dug it deep, it doubles as a nuclear bomb shelter.
See an amazing series of 60 photos of each station and the people riding the rails beneath the streets of North Korea’s capital.
Each station is a monument to the Communist regime. The whole system is like a step 60 years into the past.
