When I passed Svinesund and I touched the Swedish border I immediately noticed that there were something strange, look at the traffic lines! Normally you can find red&white or red&yellow signals, but in Sweden they are used to paint them using blue&yellow. The reason is only one in my opinion: a bit of sane fanaticism; remember that the Swedish flag has the same colours!!
To celebrate the opening of the new bridge "Nybrua"n on June the 11th, Norway and Sweden worked together, organizing many events, like concerts, ceremonies with the norwegian and the swedish Royal Families, parties, conferences, etc.
At 11 p.m. the day ended with the fireworks.
