Pyongyang, October 14 (KCNA)-- Sariwon City, the seat of North Hwanghae Province, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, has undergone a facelifting as required by the Songun era.

Some monumental edifices have sprung up in the city this year alone.

Sariwon Stadium, situated at the foot of picturesque Mt. Kyongam, and the nearby park were reconstructed in a matter of ten months.

The 20,000-seat stadium is furnished with an up-to-date scoring board, electronic display and facilities for different sports events and training as well as welfare facilities.

The Sariwon Zoo was also rebuilt on a modern basis, housing many animals including rare ones sent by General Secretary Kim Jong Il on several occasions.

It has scores of cages for such animals as tiger, monkey, bear and reptiles, aquarium, animal yards and souvenir shop.

The North Hwanghae Provincial People's Study House, with a floor space of more than 4 500 square metres, has appeared in the city. It gives such services as searching, reading and lecture with the help of computers and networks.
