Sariwŏn (Korean pronunciation: [sa. ɾi. wʌn]) is the capital of North Hwanghae Province, North Korea. The city's population is estimated to be 310,100.

Sariwŏn is divided into 31 tong (neighbourhoods) and 9 ri (villages):Sariwŏn has the only pediatric hospital (founded by Hungarians in the 1950s) in the entire region; it serves 16 districts and 500,000 children and teens annually. Sariwŏn has a Potassic/Potash Fertilizer Complex and a tractor factory. Educational institutions include the University of Agriculture, University of Geology, University of Medicine, University of Education nos. 1 & 2 and the Sariwŏn Pharmaceutical College of Koryŏ. The "Sariwŏn Folklore street" was constructed during Kim-Jong-il's rule. Built to display an ideal picture of ancient Korea, it includes buildings in the "historical style" and a collection of ancient Korean cannons. Although it is considered an inaccurate romanticized recreation of an ancient Korean street, it is frequently used as a destination for foreigners on official government tours. Many older style Korean buildings exist in the city.
