It typically takes 3 hours for passengers and freight (ferry :2 hours; driving :1 hour) to travel between Rønne and Copenhagen via Ystad in Sweden.There is a ferry departure mostly reserved for freight of goods between Rønne and Køge.Otherwise the merger would have to be abandoned altogether.
It is the result of a merger of the five former (1 April 1970 until 2002) municipalities on the island (Allinge-Gudhjem, Hasle, Nexø, Rønne and Aakirkeby) and the former Bornholm County.Bornholm Regional Municipality was also a county in its own right during its first four years from 1 January 2003 until 31 December 2006.) is a Danish island in the Baltic Sea, to the east of the rest of Denmark, south of Sweden, northeast of Germany and north of the westernmost part of Poland.The main industries on the island include fishing, dairy farming, and arts and crafts such as glass production and pottery using locally worked clay. There is an especially large number of Denmark's round churches on the island.Strategically located in the Baltic Sea, Bornholm has been fought over for centuries.
It has usually been ruled by Denmark, but also by Lübeck and Sweden.The intonation resembles the Scanian dialect spoken in nearby Scania, the southernmost province of Sweden.Bornholm Regional Municipality is the local authority (Danish, kommune) covering the entire island.If there is capacity on a departure, "normal" passengers can come aboard.There are also ferry routes to Sassnitz and Świnoujście.These islands, which do not belong to a municipality or region, are administered by the Danish Ministry of Defence. This makes the dialect difficult to understand for some Danish speakers.
