The Oresund Bridge in Copenhagen, Denmark links Denmark and Sweden for the first time since the end of the Ice Age over 7000 years ago. The $4 billion bridge/tunnel project was completed in 2000 and consists of a 5-mile bridge, 2.5 mile tunnel, and a man-made island. Malmo, Sweden, the third largest city in Sweden, is now just 35 minutes away from Copenhagen via the train across the Oresund Straits.
I took this photo as we sailed under the Oresund Bridge on the small luxury ship the Silversea Silver Cloud while on our way to the Baltic Sea. What a great view we had of this bridge/tunnel engineering marvel.
The Oresund Bridge was selected as one of the seven wonders of Sweden in a 2007 Swedish newspaper poll.
