In a country known for its human rights violations and chronic food shortages, cash was found to build two subway lines completely underground.
Tourists are usually allowed to visit only two spectacular stations – the rest are off limits. The showplace stations are underground palaces, with high arched ceilings, marble pillars, chandeliers and mosaic murals on the history of North Korea. Each station has a public toilet, and state radio programs are broadcast over loudspeakers. Hours of operation are limited because of power shortages.
