For those of you who did not know, Pyongyang is the capital of North Korea. Pyongyang is located on the Taedong River and according to the 2008 North Korean population census the city has a population of about 3.2 million people.
It is said that Pyongang was founded in 1122 BC, which probably makes it one of the oldest cities still existing today in South East Asia. The city was completely redesigned after the Korean War (which happened between 1950 and 1953). Pyongyang also has regular international rail services to Beijing and Moscow. A journey to Beijing takes about 25 hours and 25 minutes and a journey to Moscow takes 6 days.
