Tower to honour the Sovjet forces in the fight for independence May 01, 2010
The Liberation Tower was built in 1946, to remember the collibaration of the Sovjet Army with the Korean Army in their independence fight against the japanese occupation of Korea.

The tower is 30 meters high, rebuilded in 1985 and stands on Moran Hill. On the tower are several bronze carvings and sculptures to remember the soldiers. Scenes of jubilation after the liberation, with korean people greeting the sovjet soldiers.

From this place, I had a nice view over parts of Pyongyang. The tower can be climbed as well, for an even higher view.

While I was there, the may 1st celebrations were going on, so lots of local people were out.
