Russia’s Billion-Dollar Vanity Bridge -Russky Bridge

 

Russky Bridge is located off the coast of Vladivostok, in the Peter the Great Gulf, across the narrow strait of Eastern Bosphorus, connecting the large wooded island of Russky to the city. During the Soviet era, the island was primarily of military importance because of the way it shielded Vladivostok from the south. For most of the past 150 years, the Russians held numerous military units in forts and batteries that are spread out over a massive area. Until recently, even the inhabitants of Vladivostok had to get a special permit in order to visit the island.
