Krym Bridge: Having crossed by ferry several times, this is a blessing in a time factor… (video)

A new 19km bridge connecting the mainland with the Crimean Peninsula has been officially opened, making Russia the host of Europe’s longest bridge. President Vladimir Putin personally drove a truck across it to mark the occasion.

This is nice. The ferry trip that saved a bunch of travel time, was fun for one time, but to do it all the time would have been yuck. Svetochka and I traveled it several times in our trips around Russia and this bridge will make life so much better and will allow “The Krym” to blossom…

Looked a little bit wobbly at the end of the video. Keep it between the lines Putin… 😉
