The Öresund is a cable-stayed bridge across the Öresund strait between Scania in southernmost Sweden, and Denmark. The bridge runs nearly 8 kilometers (5 miles) from the Swedish coast to the artificial island of Peberholm, where it then transitions into a tunnel that extends an additional 4 Kilometers (2.5 miles).
Drivers must pay a toll to cross the bridge, but the cost seems worth it. By having the bridge, a region of 3.7 million people are afforded the freedom to live in one country but work in another.
This is the longest bridge in Europe and also it’s the world’s longest single bridge with a highway on top and a railway line at the bottom. The construction of the Bridge began in 1995, and was finished 14 August 1999.
