Bike Ride

Take a bike ride with us through Mirae (Future) Scientists Street; a 6 lane, atom themed street located on the west bank of the Taedong River.


Built at lightening speed or, what has been dubbed "Pyongyang Speed" in the DPRK, construction started in 2014 and the street was opened to the public in 2015.

Galaxy Tower | Unha Tower 은하 타워

Full of high-rise buildings, the jewel in the crown of Mirae Street is Galaxy Tower. Built in the form of a stretched atom and standing as high as the platform view of the Juche Tower, at 150 meters, this bright blue and white colossal structure is one of the tallest buildings in the DPRK.


The street has several schools, bars, restaurants (including an Italian restaurant), a cinema where we have been able to enjoy North Korean movies with our travellers, several schools and a kindergarten.

Who lives there?

A large proportion of the people living in Mirae Street are professors and scientists of Kim Chaek University which is located nearby. Kim Chaek university has around 2000 staff members and over 15,000 on campus students.
