The World Cup Fountain was built to commemorate the 2002 FIFA World Cup co-hosted by South Korea and Japan. The World Cup Fountain is located in the Han River in Seoul, South Korea, between the World Cup Stadium and Seonyudo Park. The fountain jets water at a height of 202 metres, a symbolic gesture to the year the FIFA World Cup was held in Seoul. To date, after King Fahd's Fountain, that makes it the second tallest water fountain in the world, taller than the Gateway Geyser or the fountain in Fountain Hills, Arizona or the Port Fountain in Karachi, Pakistan. For comparison, the Washington Monument in Washington D.C. is 169 meters tall.The fountain does not flow constantly. It can only be seen for a few hours a day and weather permitting.
