• On opposite sides of the Øresund bridge-giant
The world's longest cable-stayed road-rail bridge is located in Europe. It connects the island of Zealand and the Scandinavian Peninsula, through which the Øresund Strait. On one side of the Øresund bridge-giant is a cozy Danish city of Copenhagen, on the other - the Swedish city of Malmö. I invite you to take a walk on the classic Copenhagen, the good old town of Hans Christian Andersen. And then to visit Malmö.
Typical architectural feature of the Danish capital are sharp-angled "caps" on the roofs of churches.
Just a fabulous option.
Another feature is the absence of lampposts in the city center. Lights hanging everywhere.

Now go to the other side of the Øresund Bridge giant, which is the Swedish city of Malmö
There are three ways to enter the Scandinavian peninsula from Copenhagen: car, train and bus. To pass over the bridge, instead of under the bridge, I chose the third. Bus from Copenhagen to Malmö is about an hour.
The construction concrete giant total weight of 82 tons carries four road stripes and two railway tracks. Before leaving for the bridge with the Danish side has four-kilometer tunnel, made of 20 concrete segments.
This Malmö - the third largest city in Sweden after Stockholm and Gothenburg. Visible from afar Turning Torso - the highest skyscraper in Scandinavia.
The project is designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava (Santiago Calatrava). Skyscraper-style deconstruction of 190 meters was built from 2001 to 2006.
