Introduction

One of the most impressive and scenic pavilions in North Korea today, a spot commonly used for local weddings and celebrations.

Puyong Hall


History

Built in 1500. Originally this pavilion sat outside a gate of the walled city. Significantly damaged during the Korean War, Puyong Hall has since been rebuilt and stands in a picturesque lily pond.

Local legends tell of magical ways of quieting the frogs in the pond and these tales can be told to any visitors.

Location

In the centre of Haeju city, just a few minutes’ walk from the central square (where the Haeju Hotel is also located).

As there is sadly a dearth of sites to visit in Haeju city itself this is the major attraction of the urban area.

Visiting

Despite being very pretty the Pudong Pavilion really only supports a visit of a few minutes for photos, unless you are lucky enough to stumble across a wedding or celebration going on here.

Walking from the Haeju Hotel is vastly preferable that driving here as it offers a rare chance to see a bit of the city.

Opposite the Pavilion is a small Folk Park that is occasionally open for tourists to spend a few minutes looking around.
