Take a tour of Oresund Bridge in Denmark -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.

Stretched over miles and miles of water is Oresund Bridge.

This cable-stayed bridge not only links Sweden and Denmark but also connects many parts of Western and Central Europe.

By the year 1995, the construction of the bridge had begun and while it was completed in 1999, it was not until 2000 that the bridge was officially opened.

To commemorate this occasion the Danish Queen and the Swedish King hosted the celebrations and the ceremony.

This enduring structure has been built in one the immensely popular architectural style of building bridges, the Dissing+Weitling style.

The bridge offers easy access with several toll pass options to its approximate 60,000 daily users for whom it's a regular means of transportation.

Why does the title only say Denmark? The connection was built by a Swedish / Danish company in collaboration with the Swedish and Danish governments.The bridge is owned by two countries, Sweden AND Denmark.

This bridge system links DK with the 3rd world Islamic Ghetto. It's 16km of time warp - from 2014 to 1000BC.

Wow, you're so overanimating this video that you actually killed it... I lost the will to watch and learn because of your whining voice and the way you try to sound interesting. And I was interested in seeing this. Thanks...

Never getting that time back.

Why do pretty young women have to present everything! I would rather have the bridge's architect explain.

This bridge is both Danish and Swedish. I would've rather put Sweden in parenthesis if I had to choose one of the two. Because the view of the bridge is much nicer from the Swedish side.

that bridge is amazing; I'm an American of Danish heritage (50% & 50% Norwegian), and I took the bridge across to visit a Swedish friend in 1996 or 1997...I was stunned by the length of it; nothing like it goes that far in the States..
