Beijing-based Koryo Tours has released the first public photos from inside the tallest and most notorious building in North Korea: the 105-storey, pyramidshaped Ryugyong Hotel, which remains unfinished more than 20 years after construction began.
North Korea began building the Ryugyong in the 1980s but stopped when funding ran out in the 1990s. Exterior construction resumed three years ago. Koryo says the hotel will open in two or three years. -
