By the way, the bridge length is 19 kilometers. It connects the Crimean and Taman peninsulas. Car traffic was launched across it on May 16, 2018. It takes about 20 minutes (depending on the time of year and weather). And if you find yourself on the bridge at night, you can also admire the bright illumination: at night the arches (there are two of them on the bridge) shine with the colors of the Russian flag. More than three thousand lamps glare as the tricolor. The arches are 35 meters over the water, the span of them is 185 meters.
