Animated People’s Palace of Culture

Pyongyang, January 13 (KCNA) — The Wangjaesan Light Music Band of Korea is now giving art performances at the People’s Palace of Culture, drawing a large audience.

Put on the stage are instrumental and vocal musical pieces, dances and other colorful numbers.
The performances are giving conviction and courage to the working people who are pushing ahead with the forced march for the final victory.
The construction of the palace was completed in January Juche 63 (1974). Its total floor space is more than 60,000 square metres.
It is a five-storeyed building with crane-shaped roofs of Korean style.
It has a 3,000-seat conference hall, roundtable meeting hall and banquet halls. It also has more than 500 rooms including a press conference room, photographing room, recording room and typewriting room.
Put on outer walls of the building are mosaics “under the benevolent sunrays,” “our prosperous socialist country,” “honor of steel makers” and “bumper harvest.”
Many international and national meetings and functions were held at the People’s Palace of Culture. Among them are the seminar of non-aligned and other developing countries on food and agricultural production (August 1981) and the 7th General Assembly of the coordinating committee of the pool of news agencies of the non-aligned countries (may 1982).
