Puhung station is a metro station on the Mangyongdae Line of the Pyongyang Metro.[2][1] It is the southern terminus of the Chollima Line. Before the rules were relaxed in 2010, it was one of the only two stations that tourists could visit, the other one being Yonggwang station, because these two stations are the most finely decorated in the system. These two stations were also the last two to be completed.[3]
