Seoul’s Floating Island
The South Korean capital Seoul is now home to the world’s largest artificial floating island, recently opened on the Han river. It is made up of three inter-connected centres for concerts, conventions, exhibitions, water sports and restaurants. The authorities hope the island will become a major attraction for South Koreans and foreign visitors alike.
The public and private-funded project has cost the equivalent of more than 60 million euros and is at the heart of a major river renaissance plan.
