  • Norway is today to start opening all the remaining smaller border crossings to Sweden as it moves into the final stages of lifting its pandemic-related restrictions.
  • It's a landmark day for Swedes and Norwegians living on both sides of the 1600 kilometre border, the longest between two countries in Europe with 42 official border crossings.
  • "I have had to travel eighty kilometres to get to the postbox and now that problem is solved," says resident Gunnar Mosling, whose driveway crosses the border.
