The legendary Ryugyong Hotel with no doubt can be described as the most famous hotel in North Korea. The construction of the most beautiful pyramid-shaped scyscraper began in 1987, but its opening was delayed. The hotel is 330 metres high and has 105 floors, it has been designed to have 3000 rooms. Although the Ryuguong Hotel is still closed for guests, it is among the most exceptional buildings of the kind.
This is the only hotel in the world, which numbers more than a hundred floors. Poor-quality completion of the work has influenced greatly on its opening. The top floors had been built with the rejection in engineering calculations, as a result, in a few years, the top floors needed to rebuild.
In 2013 the Kempinski company developed an interest in running the hotel, but the threat of sanctions by the United States and difficult political interactions made it give up its ambitions. For many years, one of the world’s tallest buildings remains the main focus of tourists’ attention and major periodicals. In 2008 it hit the rating of Esquire magazine and was recognized as one of the projects in the history of mankind that failed. Currently, the unique skyscraper is ready for occupation, it is quite possible that pretty soon the Ryugyong hotel will expect its first guests. Next - Baiyoke Sky Hotel
