Floating Island, located near the southernmost part of Banpo Bridge, is the nation’s first-ever artificial island that floats on the surface of Hangang River. The Island is comprised of three flower-themed islets, Visat, Viva and Terra, with different functions. The island sizes 9,629㎡ in total (9,995㎡, including the bridges connecting the islets).
The first islet, Vista, takes the form of a flower in full bloom. It is a multi-functional cultural facility which can be used as a venue for performances, international conferences, exhibitions and so forth. The second islet, Viva, looks like a flower bud. A range of cultural experience and event zones including Beat Square, Youth Woods and 3D restaurants will be located here. The third islet, Terra, takes the form of a seed. The islet has water sports facilities and outdoor garden from which you may enjoy the picturesque scenery of Hangang River.
Around the Floating Island are LED lights that feature a fantastic night view under the theme of ‘gleaming light in the mist.’ The Floating Island, a prospective venue for a range of artistic performances and exhibitions, will become a landmark attraction at Hangang River, along with Jamsu Bridge Pedestrian Square and Banpo Rainbow Fountain.
