Montenegro

The Mala Rijeka viaduct is the highest railway viaduct in the world, being 198m (650ft) from rail level to river level. It lies in Montenegro between KolaĊĦin and Podgorica on the Beograd - Bar line and was completed in 1976. This view was taken on 3 September 2001 from the afternoon Bar to Beograd train a short distance before curving around onto the viaduct. The river bed (dry on this date) is at the bottom of the gorge between the two tallest piers.
