Peo­ple in the DPRK en­joys to their heart’s con­tent the plea­sure of life at cul­tural es­tab­lish­ments of mod­ern fash­ion built in the cap­i­tal city of Py­ongyang, thanks to the peo­ple-ori­ented pol­icy of the Work­ers’ Party of Korea and the state which strive to build the coun­try into a cul­tured so­cial­ist na­tion aimed at pro­vid­ing peo­ple with happy life.

Munsu Wa­ter Park which was built in a vast area of 125 000 m2 on the bank of the pic­turesque Tae­dong River last year is a good tes­ti­mony.

The mag­nif­i­cent wa­ter park is filled with laugh­ter and shouts of joy ev­ery day.

Large num­bers of peo­ple flood the in­door and out­door wad­ing pools as if they are ea­ger to await the ar­rival of sum­mer.

There are a sea­wa­ter pool that re­sem­bles a bathing re­sort with waves, chil­dren’s wa­ter park rem­i­nis­cent of a fairy­tale world and var­i­ous ten oth­ers. The bathers dis­port­ing them­selves in clear and fresh wa­ter and those shout­ing with joy rid­ing steep slide and other slides of var­i­ous shapes are all beam­ing with joy.

After swimming, they take soft drinks at the cater­ing fa­cil­i­ties in the park.

The Rungna Peo­ple’s Recre­ation Ground is also filled with laugh­ter as in the Munsu Wa­ter Park.

Built on a to­tal floor space of 12 000 m2, the Rungna Alpa Mare in the recre­ation ground is fur­nished with wa­ter slides, from which peo­ple slide down feel­ing as if they are fall­ing from sky. Not only men but women play them two or three times re­peat­edly.

Com­pet­i­tive spirit per­vades through­out the alpa mare in div­ing and wad­ing pools as well as bas­ket­ball, volleyball and beach volleyball courts and minigolf course.

The Rungna Dol­phi­nar­ium looks like a dol­phin scut­tling through the waves out­side and a the­atre inside. Dol­phins weigh­ing over a hun­dred kgs per­form var­i­ous stunts, giv­ing plea­sure to the spec­ta­tors. Mean­while, in the Rungna Amuse­ment Park peo­ple en­joy them­selves with a va­ri­ety of amuse­ment fa­cil­i­ties, play elec­tronic games and watch movies at 4-D Sim­u­la­tion Cin­ema, be­ing un­aware of the pas­sage of time.

The Peo­ple’s Open-air Ice Rink is also a favourite sum­mer haunt for the peo­ple, who, en­grossed in skat­ing, say that they don’t want to leave once they visit it, and want to come again when they leave it.

The Mirim Rid­ing Club in a sub­urb of Py­ongyang is filled with the sound of hooves of the horses gal­lop­ing along the race tracks, car­ry­ing peo­ple on their backs.

The peo­ple on horse­backs, giv­ing spurs to them, re­sem­ble war­riors in an­cient times.

Those ex­cel­lent recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties make young peo­ple re­dou­ble their strength and courage and the aged feel young again. En­joy­ing pleas­ant and cheer­ful life there, the work­ing peo­ple are re­solved more firmly to work their best for the pros­per­ity of so­cial­ist moth­er­land.

Work­ing peo­ple and school­child­ren en­joy them­selves at the Munsu Wa­ter Park built on the bank of the Tae­dong River
