At the beginning of July, there will be a new bridge opened in Mustvee, the capital of Peipus, that was built by the Estonian Road Administration and cost nearly 700,000 euros. The earlier bridge had been built in 1934 and opened by Konstantin Päts, President of the Republic of Estonia.
„This is a historical event, bridges are built to last for centuries and the event is not only important for the Peipus region, but for all of Estonia. Mustvee, the capital of Peipsu, has clearly started moving upward after its 500-year-long history. From the capital of Peipus, Estonia and the European Union begin. We are proud that the capital of Peipus will get the most beautiful bridge in Estonia. It will be the most beautiful concrete building in Estonia both architecturally as well as aesthetically, both lighting-wise as well as safety-wise,” stated Max Kaur, Mayor of Mustvee, the capital of Peipus.
