The Yanghwadaegyo Bridge is a bridge that crosses the Hangang River in Seoul, connecting Hapjeong-dong of Mapo-gu and Yangpyeong-dong of Yeongdeungpo-gu, and was once called the “Second Hanganggyo Bridge.” The Yanghwadaegyo Bridge is a special bridge that manifests the history of Seoul’s transportation as it is a combination of two new bridges that joined into one on the first bridge across the Hangang River constructed with Korean technology following Korea’s independence from Japan. Seonyudo Island and the Yanghwadaegyo Bridge are considered inseparable since Seonyudo Island, which sits at the center of the Yanghwadaegyo Bridge, only became an island with the opening of the bridge. The island is treasured as
a site for outings all year around, and cafes on the Yanghwadaegyo Bridge give a view of Hangang Park while the promenade below the bridge is perfect for enjoying the full bloom of cherry blossoms and appreciating the paintings on the pillars. Take a walk from Dangsan Station to Yanghwa Hangang Park, then over the Yanghwadaegyo Bridge to Seonyudo Park, and experience the eco-friendliness of the Yanghwadaegyo Bridge.
