The Rungna Bridge is a bridge in Pyongyang, North Korea, one of the city's six bridges on the Taedong River. Located between the Okryu Bridge to the south and Chongnyu Bridge to the north, it connects Moranbong-guyok on the right (west) bank of the Taedong River with Taedonggang-guyok on the left bank, passing through Rungnado Island in the middle. It totals 1,070 metres (3,510 ft) in length. It was completed in 1988. An image of the Chongnyu Bridge appeared on the reverse of 500-won banknotes from 1992.[1] [2]
