The Made In China Bridge in Croatia Changes the Face of the Adriatic Coast


The long awaited bridge in Croatia has opened. The Chinese-made bridge serves as a link with the southern Adriatic region.

Named the Peljesac Bridge, it was officially launched on Tuesday, citing CNN Saturday (30/7/2022). The building, which is also funded by the European Union, runs between Komarna di and Brijesta on the Peljesac peninsula.

The Peljesac Bridge makes for easier access to the popular tourist attractions of Dubrovnik. Measuring 2.4 kilometers long, the opening of the bridge is considered a historic moment for the country.

Hundreds of people were the first to cross on foot as the bridge opened to pedestrians and then to motorists.

Until recently, both residents and tourists had to cross Bosnia-Herzegovina when traveling to and from the Southern Dalmatia region to the mainland. This means they have to undergo border checks to make some areas in the Adriatic Sea feel isolated.

Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic described the €525 million Peljesac Bridge as not a luxury, but a necessity.
