This photo taken on Thursday, June 13, 2013 shows the new bridge between Bulgaria and Romania, in the town of Vidin, Bulgaria. The bridge is the second on the 500-kilometer stretch of the Danube River that forms the common border between the Balkan neighbors, and is touted as a key to boosting growth in one of Europe's poorest regions. But skeptics argue that dilapidated infrastructure on both sides of the river will turn it into "a bridge to nowhere." (AP Photo/Valentina Petrova) less
