Denmark=> Germany

Sooo, my dear readers, those are the pictures from my first day of the journey :)

Today's post is about the largest bridge in Europe - Oresund's Bridge , It is the longest combined road and rail bridge in Europe and connects the two metropolitan areas of the Öresund Region: the Danish capital of Copenhagen and the Swedish city of Malmö.

The bridge has one of the longest cable-stayed main spans in the world at 490 metres (1,608 ft). The height of the highest pillar is 204 metres (669 ft). The total length of the bridge is 7,845 metres (25,738 ft), which is approximately half the distance between the Swedish and Danish landmasses, and its mass is 82,000 tonnes.

Construction began in 1995. The last section was constructed on 14 August 1999.
