The first train carrying 41 Russian tourists to North Korea set off on Thursday morning after a 4-year hiatus at the request of Pyongyang due to the Corona virus pandemic.

The Russian Federal Customs Service reported on its “Telegram” channel that the train departed via the “Khasan” crossing.

Earlier, regional authorities announced plans to resume the train service running along the Vladivostok – Khasan – Tumangang – Rason route.

Since last February, Russian authorities have started sending tourist groups to North Korea by air.

The relevant authorities have improved the summer tour programs, which will last between eight and twelve days, allowing Russian tourists to relax on the beaches of the neighboring country.
