History & Politics of North Korea
North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), is an East Asian country situated on the northern half of the Korean Peninsula. Its capital is Pyongyang. Its border is shared predominantly with the People's Republic of China. Russia shares an 18.3 km (11.4-mile) border along the Tumen River in the far northeast corner of the country. To the south, it is bordered by South Korea, with which it formed one territorial unit known as Korea until 1945, when the country was divided into two separate states following World War II.
The Democratic People's Republic of North Korea is one of the few remaining Communist states. The government is dominated by the Korean Workers' Party (KWP), to which 80 percent of government officials belong.

Many ancient buildings in Kaesong , bear witness to Korea’s 500-year imperial history. The town is surrounded by beautiful pine-clad hills. Kumgangsan is the country’s largest national park, consisting of a range of mountains (known as ‘the Diamond Mountains’) along the east coast of the country. Its unspoilt, diverse environment is popular with birdwatchers, photographers and botanists. Myohyangsan, whose name means ‘exotic fragrant mountain’, offers pleasant walks and climbs through a contrasting scenery of waterfalls, woods and Buddhist pagodas, just 120km (75 miles) northeast of the capital. The Exhibition Center, with its imposing 4-tonne bronze doors, houses thousands of gifts presented by foreigners to Kim II Sung and his son.
