Early in the morning, at 5:30 am Moscow time, traffic was opened along the highway section of a bridge across the Kerch Strait in the Crimea.
The first ones who drove their cars along the road of the Crimean bridge were local residents from two dozen cities of the Peninsula and the Kuban. They were followed by motorcyclists from neighboring Russian regions.
Cars from Kerch and Taman met at a shipping arch, and drivers greeted each other with whistles.
“We so much waited for the opening of the bridge, and now it is a holiday for us! Despite the fact that it was necessary to wake up early, all our family gathered and decorated the cars with balls and flags,” a local resident shared her impressions.
