Situated between Sonae Bridge and Chilgol flyover in Pyongyang, capital city of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Chongchun Street has lots of sports facilities.

On March 4, Juche 75 (1986) Chairman Kim Jong Il examined the design of sports facilities on Chongchun Street, and on March 23, he told the relevant officials that they should build the structures in the eastern part of Pyongyang and on Chongchun Street in streamlined and fascinated manner, rather than stereotyped one.

On May 13, he went over the newly-amended design of various gymnasiums on the street, and on August 23 the following year he found that the structures failed to retain buoyancy and detailed the ways for their solution.

Finally, the project began in early September Juche (1986) and finished on September 3, 1988.

Sports facilities were located in harmony along the road in accordance with the geographical features.

On the right side of the street from Sonae Bridge towards Chilgol flyover, you can see Ryanggang Hotel, Sosan Hotel, Fitness Centre, the Restaurant for Sportsmen, the Sosan Football Stadium, the Handball Gymnasium, the Table-tennis Gymnasium, the Athletic Gymnasium, the Combat Sports Gymnasium, the Badminton Gymnasium and the Swimming Gymnasium, and on the left side, the Taekwon-Do Palace, the Basketball Gymnasium, the Volleyball Gymnasium and Weightlifting Gymnasium.

These Gymnasiums can hold 40-odd categories of over 20 sports events simultaneously, and accommodate some 50 000 spectators.

Today, under the wise leadership of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, the street has been modernized as a comprehensive base for sporting activities, making a tangible contribution to the development of sports in the DPR Korea.
