The Mala Rijeka viaduct was, at this time, the highest railway viaduct in the world, being 198 m (650 ft) from rail level to river level. It lies in Montenegro between Kolašin 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.
