ROMANIA: A train travels on the newly constructed bridge over the Danube River that links Calafat in Romania to Vidin in Bulgaria, 320 km (199 miles) southwest of Bucharest. The bridge, measuring 2 km (1.24 miles) long and built with a budget of 275 million Euros ($362 million), is the biggest construction project in Bulgaria and one of the most important projects supported by the European Union, constructors said. It includes a road and railway track.
