The DPRK pavilion is decorated with national flags and a winged steed bronze statue on the outer walls. Covering one thousand square meters, the pavilion has exhibited major features of its capital city Pyongyang. A winding river flows across the pavilion, reminding people of the stretching Taedong River, the mother river and a cradle of culture for the DPRK.
A national section and stone caves are exhibited on the right side of the pavilion. Inside the cave, the world heritage of tomb murals in Jiangxi County and paintings of DPRK style are displayed.
