Height: 15 m

Vitim River Bridge is one of the scariest bridges in the world. During the Siberian winter, the bridge becomes even more challenging as the wood turns into an ice slick that provides no traction. The old railway bridge is 570 m long and only 15 m above the water. It’s barely wide enough for one car, and it’s iced over for much of the year. Isn’t wide enough for a car and has no railings. It’s made of wood and not in a very good condition. It will take a good 3 minutes to drive across it if you’re a skilled driver.
