According to RIA Novosti, almost a third of Russian citizens dream of having a vacation in North Korea.

In a survey that was conducted by the Public Opinion Foundation, such a response was given by 31% of study participants. 67% said they did not want to spend their holidays in the DPRK.

It also turned out that more than half of the respondents (54%) are indifferent to this country. 27% sympathize with North Korea, and 11% dislike it.

The sociologists interviewed a total of 1,500 people living in 104 localities throughout the country.

In late August the authorities of the DPRK made it easier to obtain visas for Russians. Pyongyang shortened the terms of consideration of the documents submitted by travelers from Russia from 2 weeks to 3-5 days.

Also it became known that a official travel agency of North Korea started its work in Russia. The firm offers the citizens of the Russian Federation week-long trips to the DPRK for the price of 70,000 rubles (approx. $1,200 – RRT), airfare not included.
