Unbelievable to see, but was mostly done by a fanatical dictator in the Communist times. A guided tour is a must and security is very tight. Beautifully constructed.

when we went there were 2 tours available - one in the morning and one in the afternoon. it's also worth noting that you'll need your passport when you visit as they need this for security measures.
