6 Incredible Fake Buildings


6. Kijong-dong, North Korea

This isn’t just one measly fake building — it’s an entire fake town. Built within the demilitarized zone acting as a buffer between North and South Korea, the North Korean government’s official story is that the town is home to 200 families.
