Pyongyang a park city(e) - Association for the Study of Songun ...

P yongyang was once called “Ryugyong” or “willow

city”.

Weeping willows on the banks of the Rivers Taedong and

Pothong add to the scenic beauty of the ribersides, with the

shady willows of summer and frost-covered tress of winter

particularly picturesque.

The people of Pyongyang have planted many willows

around the city to further beautify its scenery.

Some agencies and structures are named “Ryugyong”, as

if boasting of Pyongyang’s long history.
