Not many westerners get to visit North Korea and if they do, they surely don’t risk taking video and photos in places they aren’t allowed. This 29-second clip from Elliott Davies (plus photos, linked below) gives you a good look at the Pyongyang Metro. It’s supposedly the deepest metro system in the world and doubles as a nuclear bunker. To reach the train platforms, “it’s almost four minutes down on an escalator accompanied by revolutionary anthem and the noticeable silence of commuters.”

Even more interesting are the subway photos. According to In a Nutshell, “they were part of the first ever group of foreigners given access to all stations across both lines of the Pyongyang Metro. Pyongyang Metro was one of the most mysterious, yet beautiful transit systems on earth, each station uniquely themed in ultra-nationalism, parading North Korea’s revolutionary goals and achievements to impressionable commuters.”
