It has been over 30 years since the Ryugyong hotel was to document North Korea's apparently successful economy, was commenced.
It is 105 stories tall derived from the pyramid shaped hotel, which is known under the name "dommedagshotellet" and "fantomhotellet", towering with its 330 meters high above any other building in North Korea.Activity?
But where it was intended that the hotel really should show the world how good it was to with the economy of the closed country, failed and most of the project already in 1992. Then there were the sudden stop because of lack of money.
for over 20 years there was seemingly nothing with the hotel. People from outside saw it as the very proof of how badly tuned it was in the country, while the people in the country rarely mentioned it at all.
But in 2016 there were again signs that something was going on. Then there was suddenly light in the two rooms completely in the top of the hotel. Maybe it could be that the north koreans had decided to finalize it?
last year, showed satellite images it might look like of activity at the hotel, which will have over 350 000 square meters of floor area spread over 3000 rooms.
And byggeaktivitetene as was seen in the last year may have been a frampek against it that have been rolled out in the course of 2018.Propagandalysshow
For the hotel in the course of the years has been completely blacked out, if one looks away from the light at the top which is there for it to be visible to the aircraft, its now every night up of over 100 000 LED lights, writes the news agency AP.
at the very top shows the LED a 40 meter high north Korean flag that blafrer in the wind. The flag can be seen from all the sides.After 27 years suddenly became light on the world's tallest, unoccupied hotels
On the front of the hotel is shown an animation giving a review of North Korean history, followed by a celebration of the north Korean ideals, before it shows the 17 political slogan, "harmonious whole" and "100 battles, 100 victories".
the Man behind the huge lysshowet is the light designer of Kim Jong Il.
" I am very proud. I made this wonderful design for this giant building, and when people see it so they get a good feeling, " says Kim.
He says that the aim of the lysshowet is to give "self-esteem and hope for the future of our people".
the Feedback has been fantastic. The flag on top of the building is several hundred metres above the ground and everyone can see it. It fills them with pride and faith to be a citizen who is willing to work very hard, " says Kim.
the LED light was first lit in conjunction with the birthday of North Korea's "eternal president", Kim Il-sung, grandfather to the country's current leader, Kim Jong-un.Innholdsløst hotels
Although the hotel is now again attracting nordkoreanernes attention, it is entirely unclear when, and if, it ever comes to have so much as a single guest.
It is also sowing doubts about the glass - and betongstrukturen is solid enough, and North Korea has a fairly limited access to electricity. Without that it seems to stop the north koreans in the lighting of the 100 000 LED lights for several hours each evening.
the Hotel was originally seen as a response to the 226 m high Westrin Stamford Hotel in Singapore, which was completed by a south Korean company in 1986.
But as mentioned, has lack of money made that it has stood almost untouched until relatively recently. In 2012 appeared the also images that revealed the contents of it, or perhaps more accurately: the Lack of content.
the Images, which were taken by the Beijing-based Koryo Tours, showed a large, bare concrete lobby without furniture or any kind of embellishment.
the Same year also went the German hotel chain Kempinski high and said that they would take over the operation of the hotel, along with chinese Beijing Travel Group. It was the time talked about a possible opening in July or august 2013, but it was however with the rumors.
So all that remains is to see if it ever gets completely finished. Just that the question does not have the designer Kim any good answers.
- It is not my field, " he says.After 30 years of mystery is the sudden movement in the "dommedagshotellet"
