Postcard from DPR KOREA(NORTH KOREA)


Mangyongda Native House,Pyongyang,DPR  Korea(NORTH KOREA).
This is the birthplace of Kim Il-Sung, ruler of North Korea until 1994. Although Kim was probably born near Pyongyang, it is unknown whether this is the actual location. The site, dedicated in 1947, comprises several grass roof houses built in a style commonly found in northern Korea. The I-shaped buildings consist of several rooms linked by a shallow wooden veranda. Unlike the traditional homes of southern Korea, there are no open-floored (maru) spaces because the climate is too severe. Grateful to Tian  in China for arranging to send this rare country card.
