Rungra Island is an island in Pyongyang, North Korea, located in the middle of the Taedong River. Its total area is 1.3 square kilometres (0.50 sq mi). The Chongryu Bridge on the north side and the Rungra Bridge on the south side connect the island to the rest of Pyongyang.[1] The island is a good place to see some of the Eight Views of Pyongyang.[2]

Recreational facilities on the island include the Rungrado 1st of May Stadium. The Rungra People's Pleasure Ground is also scheduled to be opened there in 2012; it includes a dolphin exhibit, volleyball and basketball courts, and a wading pool.[3]
