On 25 October, King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, accompanied by Crown Princess Victoria and Princess Estelle, inaugurated the Slussen Bridge in Stockholm. Due to its color scheme Slussen Bridge is unofficially often called the Gold Bridge (Swedish: Guldbron).
The new bridge was transported in one giant piece by boat from China. It is 140 meters long, 45 meters wide and the entire construction weighs approximately 3,700 tonnes.
