This Soviet-era "Olympic Highway" has to be in the running for one of the worst roads in the world - and you can see why. The damage is not due to over-use, age and poor workmanship, the highway was apparently ruined by spring flood waters. Local authorities are working on fixing this road. It is called the "Olympic" road, because it was built 30 years ago for Soviet Summer Olympic games.

Footage of the road has been shared widely online and often left readers amused and bemused.
"The road drank too much vodka," joked one viewer, while another said: "Crazy, and we moan about the odd pothole here!"

This road is already called the most dangerous in Russia and might well be the most dangerous road in the world.
