The unique underwater bridge between Denmark and Sweden

If you were a good student at school and atendías to geography classes , you may remember that Denmark and Sweden are separated by a relatively small trickle of water, the Oresund. It is really a point on the map that lives up to its name, just 16 kilometers from one coast to the other. For centuries the Swedes and Danes were to sail this boat ride away, but this was inconvenient as there was a quick trip, in relation to the short distance. So they decided to build a bridge, not a common one, but the only one of its kind.

We are increasingly convinced that architects are geniuses.

The bridge is a structure that has two levels where four-lane superhighway and to railway are located.

ends on an artificial island and sinks underground.

This type so unusual construction was chosen because it was not convenient to generate obstacles affecting the aircraft approach the airport in Copenhagen, or impede the passage of ships.

The bridge looks pretty impressive from above.
