Is this bridge in Russia the most dangerous bridge on the planet?

You need balls of steel to get across the Vitim River in Russia’s Transbaikal region. The bridge spanning the icy torrent below is just two metres wide, and doesn’t have a single rail or safety feature.

Stretching 570 metres, it was originally built as a railway bridge, however it was never officially put to use, so the people of the nearby village of Kuanda began to use it instead.

According to Oddity Central, since it’s not an officially functioning bridge, almost no repairs have been done to it in 30 years! As a result, you’ll find gaping holes along your pleasant drive over. Drivers even cover up those holes on the bridge themselves.

As for if you fall off the bridge, the icy river below will stop your fall. So there’s that to look forward to.
