Naju Seungchonbo

We like going for a drive and last weekend we went driving through Naju and the wheels brought us to Naju Seungchonbo. I've been to Naju several times but never been to this new project of the Korean President Lee Myung Bak, the Naju Seungchonbo.

Naju Seungchonbo is a river. It is Yeongsan gang or Yeongsan river. Yeonsan gang or river begins at Yongchu Valley in Yongyeon-ri, Yong-myeon, Damyang-gun. The stream that runs through the valley of Gamagol within four kilometers of Chuwolsan Mountain in Damyang is also called Yongso. The stream expands into Damyang Lake continuing its flow to Wolgyecheon Stream, Jiseokcheon Stream, and Yeongsan Lake. It makes its way to Mokpo and flows into the Yellow Sea past the Yeongsan Bank. The river is 138.75 kilometers long. It is one of the four major rivers in Korea beginning and ending in the Southern state and is a precious source of water in the region.

It's not only the dam or river that gives beauty to Seungchonbo but also the park. Near the bridge is the park with museum inside. You go up to the porch and you'll see the nice view of Naju.

Here's the beauty of the Naju Seungchonbo from the top view.

There's also an art museum inside. There are lots of art but I think this is what I like the best. It's like broken glasses or crystal and it looks different if you use the light.

If you're planning to visit Naju Seungchonbo, it's in 769-1, Singa-ri, Geumcheon-myeon, Naju-si, Jeollanam-do.
