Embereket is égettek már el a világ legnagyobb stadionjában Észak-Koreában

Korábban a témában:

Észak-Koreáról az elmúlt hetekben akarva-akaratlanul rengeteget lehetett hallani a sorozatos rakétatesztjeik miatt, arról viszont valószínűleg csak kevesen tudnak, hogy náluk található a világ legnagyobb stadionja.

Az ország mindenkori vezetőinek egyértelmű célja, hogy a hatalmas betontömbökből felhúzott épületeikkel bizonygassák hatalmukat. Ezek közé tartozik a phenjani Rungnado Május Elseje Stadion is.

Az arénát 1989-ben építették válaszként a déli szomszéd szöuli Olimpiai Stadionjára, amely az 1988-as nyári olimpiára készült. 2014-ben felújították, összesen 150 ezer ember fér el benne.

A nyolcszintes épület több mint 60 méter magas, 80 kapu és 10 felvonó található benne. A magnólia szirmaihoz hasonlító, egymáshoz kapcsolódó 16 boltíves tetőrész a teljes nézőteret befedi.

A monumentális szentély egyik legfurcsább jellegzetessége, hogy a névadó Rungrado-szigeten fekszik, és csak a Taedong folyó hídjáról lehet megközelíteni. Ha valaki járt már tömegrendezvényen, ismeri az érzést, mikor egy esemény után ki kell araszolni a helyszínről. És képzelhetjük, mennyi időbe telhet hazajutni, amikor 150 ezren próbálnak egyszerre kimenni a kapukon.

A stadion futballmeccseknek és atlétikai versenyeknek is rendszeresen otthont ad. 1995-ben itt rendezték meg azt a pankrációs műsort is, aminek tévéközvetítéséért a valaha volt legtöbb néző fizetett ki egyszeri díjat.

A legnagyobb, legnépszerűbb, és talán legfurcsább esemény a két hónapon át tartó Tömegjátékok elnevezésű rendezvény, amely az ország történelme és vezérkara előtt tiszteleg több ezer ember által előadott gimnasztikai és táncos produkciókkal.

Az augusztusban vagy szeptemberben megtartott ünnepen külön műsort szentelnek az országalapító Kim Ir Szen előtt, aki 1972 és 1994 között vezette az országot, és nélküle ez a stadion sem készülhetett volna el.

A nézőtéri élőképek egészen lenyűgözőek, csak annyi baj van vele, hogy a koreográfiának kötelezően vetik alá a polgárokat, Észak-Koreában pedig nemigen mer senki ellenkezni, ha parancsot kap.

A hadsereg is gyakran tart itt parádékat, sőt, az 1990-es évek végén élve égették el a gyepszőnyegen a katonatiszteket, akik ki akarták végezni Kim Dzsongilt, Kim Dzsongun édesapját.

Participants dance during an 'Arrirang' performance at the 150,000-seat Rungnado May Day Stadium in Pyongyang on July 26, 2013. Arrirang performances feature some 100,000 participants to create a 'synchronized socialist-realist spectacular in a 90 minute display of gymnastics, dance, acrobatics, and dramatic performance, in a highly politicized package' according to the China-based North Korean travel company Koryo Tours. North Korea is preparing to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War which ran from 1950 to 1953, with a series of performances, festivals, and cultural events culminating with a large military parade.
