Rungna Islet is situated on the Taedong River which meanders through the middle of Pyongyang.
It has been known from olden times to have beautiful scenery with branches of willows drooping on the river water like silk rolls spread on gem-like clear water, hence the name Rungna.

It consists of a dolphinarium, water park, funfair and minigolf course.
