Measuring 1,791 metres and rising 43 metres above the Danube is the new road and railway bridge linking Romania and Bulgaria.

The bridge, linking Vidin in Bulgaria and Calafat in Romania, will take 500 km off the route for lorries travelling from south-east Europe and the Middle East to Western Europe.

The cost of construction is estimated at 275 million euros. The project was partly funded by the European Union as part of its drive to improve transport movement and stimulate growth across the continent.

It’s also hoped the bridge will revitalise the north-west of Bulgaria, one of the poorest regions in the EU.
