The Öresund Bridge connects Sweden and Denmark and was opened in 2000. Since then it has been one of the prime connections between the two countries. 2017 witnessed the highest number of vehicles entering the bridge - 7, 530, 255.

Previous records were set in 2016 with 7, 424, 000 and back in 2009 with 7, 104, 000 vehicles. One of the factors for this year's record was the cross-country Christmas shopping.
