Amazing Bridge Fountain in Seoul

VideoGalleylogoFrom Wikipedia: "The Moonlight Rainbow Fountain is the world's longest bridge fountain...1,140 meters [1,247 yards] long, shooting out 190 tons of water per minute." Wikipedia also reports that the bridge's 38 water pumps draw water from the river 20 meters [21 yards] below the deck; the fountain's nozzles shoot out water up to 43 meters [47 yards] horizontally.

Furthermore, Wikipedia notes that the span has another interesting feature: The Banpo was constructed on top of the Jamsu Bridge to create a double-deck span. When the water level of the Han River rises sufficiently, however, the lower level (Jamsu), which has pedestrian and bicycle paths, is covered in water and must be closed.
