Nodeul Island, an uninhabited artificial island in the middle of Han River that located between Seoul’s Yongsan and Dongjak districts, which can be easily accessed by car or on foot via the Hangang Grand Bridge. The history of the island goes back to the early 20th century when it was made artificially to support the Hangang Bridge constructed in 1917 by the Japanese government. The man-made island was a popular spot for family events before it became desolate for more than half a century since 1960s, and recently it was revamped as a recreational complex.
Opened on 28 September 2019, Nodeul Island offers eco-friendly conference and complex facilities for international or business meetings and welcome receptions.
