The Pelješac Bridge was opened yesterday in a gala ceremony that featured fireworks, acrobatic airplane displays and music and dance. The largest ever construction project in Croatian history is now open, a 2,404 metre bridge that was started back in the summer of 2018.
"Dear Croatians, guests, guests, friends, this is a historic day for Croatia. I am overcome by feelings of joy, pride and gratitude. This is a project of a generation and pride because we are part of the generation that accomplished such a great act of uniting the Croatian territory, uniting the southern part with the rest of the country," said Croatian Prime Minister, Andrej Plenković.
The far south of Croatia is now connected to the rest of the country for the first time in over 300 years.
