The Banpo Bridge: Brightness and Warmth in the Han River

In September of 2008, opened the Banpo Bridge, which is also known as “Rainbow Fountain” or “Moonlight Fountain”.

This is located in one of the major cities of South Korea: Seoul. This unique double-deck bridge, is the largest man-made structure in the world. This bridge connects the districts of Seocho and Yongsan.

Labelled in Guinness Book of Records as longest bridge in the world, this place brings together millions of tourists that conglomerate at night to see the wonderful waterfalls.

It is full of lights that are of the Han bridge building. This magnificent decoration was an idea of the Korean government, which took place at the Renaissance project on the Han River.

The lower level of the bridge is used by bicycles, pedestrians, and cars to facilitate their access to Napo Hangang Park. But when the river’s water level increases, this part closes. The top floor operates normally, but only for cars.

The nearly 10 thousand nozzles coming out on both sides of the bridge work everyday and generate geometric shapes.

At night, they display different color schemes to create a beautiful and artificial rainbow.
