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. However, as outsiders have observed, the town is uninhabited and is little more than large scale propaganda aiming to encourage South Koreans to defect to the north.

Surprising...but the fakes do coverup what would be considered eyesores - except in the case of North Korea. Hard to know what that town is really for.
