Pyongyang, April 3 (KCNA) — Youths and children across the country Sunday made a study tour of the old home of President Kim Il Sung in Mangyongdae on the occasion of the Day of the Sun (his birth anniversary), the greatest holiday of the nation.
Participating in the study tour were officials of the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League and over 4,000 working youths and school youth and children from different parts of the country.
Prior to their study tour they climbed Mansu Hill to lay floral baskets and bouquets before the statue of Kim Il Sung and make a bow in humble reverence.
Then they began their study tour of the old home in Mangyongdae, carrying flags bearing the portraits of Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il in the van.
They vigorously marched streets of the capital, fluttering flags of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the DPRK and the youth league and red flags.
Citizens and school youth and children in the capital inspired them, throwing confetti, waving bouquets and enthusiastically cheering along the streets.
Upon their arrival in Mangyongdae, they firstly laid wreaths and bouquets before the graves of Kim Po Hyon and Ri Po Ik, grandparents of Kim Il Sung, and the graves of his parents Kim Hyong Jik and Kang Pan Sok, and paid silent tributes.
They visited the Mangyongdae Revolutionary Museum and the old home in time-honored Mangyongdae.
They looked round with deep attention historic relics impregnated with the personal odor of members of the revolutionary family in Mangyongdae and posed for souvenir photographs in front of the old home before inspecting revolutionary relics on Mangyong Hill.
