The Pelješac Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge in Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Croatia. The length of the bridge is 2.4 kilometers and it was completed on July 26, 2022. The bridge connects the northern shore of the Mali Ston bay in the Adriatic Sea with the Pelješac peninsula on the south side of the bay. The city of Neum, located on the northern shore of the bay, is part of Bosnia and Herzegovina and separates the southern part of Dubrovnik-Neretva County, which is part of Croatia, and the coastal city of Dubrovnik located there as an exclave from the rest of the Croatian mainland. Once completed, the bridge will provide a direct land connection from the rest of Croatia to Dubrovnik without the need for a border crossing through Bosnia-Herzegovina.
