This is the engineering marvel also known as the Øresund Link. When you learn what it does, you will be rendered speechless.
It consists of a bridge, a tunnel, and an artificial island, and connects the Danish capital of Copenhagen to the Swedish city of Malmö.
This extraordinary structure was the brainchild of Danish architect George K.S. Rotne, and was opened on July 1, 2000.
The bridge spans about 8km before transitioning through an artificial island into a 4km tunnel under the Flinterenden Channel.
But there’s more: the Lund’s Botanical Association has identified more than 500 different species of plants on the tiny man-made island, which was constructed from material dredged from the seabed.
And it amazingly only took five years to build.
