Pyongyang Folklore Park

The Pyongyang Folklore Park is located in the outskirts of Pyongyang. It was opened to the Public in 2012 and shows the history of Korea from ancient times to modern days. Tombs, monuments, temples and homes have been built to the last detail in order to explain the history of Korea going back to pre-historical times.

Pictures & Descriptions of the Pyongyang Folklore Park

You can see scenes of past Korean Kingdoms, such as the Silla Kingdom, and even enter homes that show how people lived in those days. Please check our Korean History page for more information regarding the different kingdoms that have existed in Korea.

Korean family see a scene of the famous Korean Admiral Ri Sun Shin in the Choson Dynasty who repeatedly defeated the Japanese despite being overwhelmingly outnumbered by successfully using Turtle Ships. Admiral Ri (spelled Yi Sun Shin in South Korea) is considered the best admirals in history by many historians. His battles went all undefeated.
