Prime Minister Viktor Orbán sent a letter to Andrej Plenkovic, his Croatian counterpart, congratulating him on the completion and opening of the Peljesac bridge which connects the Dalmatian mainland in the south and the Peljesac peninsula, his press chief told MTI on Wednesday.
In a letter sent to Plenkovic, Orbán said “I honestly believe that the completion of Croatia’s most significant infrastructural project, which has been carried out in an effective cooperation with international partners, is a historic milestone for the Republic of Croatia.”
“The new bridge, which has brought an end to Croatia’s infrastructural fragmentation, is an excellent example of how a link can serve to better interconnect the region,” Orbán wrote in his letter.
“Croatia for us, Hungarians, is traditionally one of the most popular summer holiday destinations. This is why I am glad that through the new Peljesac bridge, our tourists and other travelers coming from all over the world can now discover the exceptional beauties of South Dalmatia under much safer circumstances and in a much faster way,” Orbán said.
