It stands at the southern foot of Moran Hill.
As a lovely garden of Pyongyang, the hill is referred to as one of the eight scenic spots in Pyongyang for its beauty. It rises 95 metres above sea level and covers an area of over 270 hectares. It looks like a beautiful peony, hence its name.
There are many historical relics and there grow over 180 species of trees and over 120 species of flowers.
The Moranbong Theatre is the first of its kind in Pyongyang, which was built in the spring of Juche 35 (1946) right after Korea’s liberation.
It is a historic place where the first session of the Supreme People’s Assembly was held in Juche 37 (1948) and the founding of the DPRK was proclaimed.
Renovated in Juche 95 (2006), it is the venue of performance given by the high-profile National Symphony Orchestra.
