There’s a new bridge in the European Union. Not any bridge: it stretches across the Danube from Romanian Calafat to Bulgarian Vidin.
Romanians called it the “New Europe” bridge. Bulgarians agreed. The bridge is symbolical of the ties between the two countries as they both entered the EU in 2007 and have been jointly considered in quite a few European issues, like the Schengen subject.
This bridge is also a statement of the commitment the two countries have as EU members. This should ring some bells in Brussels in the Home Affairs files.
