  • IN keeping with the country's stance of absolute neutrality this, this tall and unique structure is a fitting reminder.  more »
  • It seems to have been built in commemoration of being recognized as a neutral country for a long time. It seems to be able to go up by the elevator, but when I went, it was said that the elevator was not moving. It is not known when it is working. I think it is good as a photo spot.
