11 The Worst Russian Roads Can Be Found Here

The Worst Russian Roads Can Be Found Here

Posted on April 23, 2015 by team

— What do you want me to show you? — asks the taxi driver.
— What is your city famous for? Show me the most interesting things!
— Well let’s go and see our roads then! It’s the most worthy thing I can show you…

That’s the dialogue of blogger zyalt who came to visit the city of Yoshkar Ola, Russia, and the local taxi driver.

Each city has it’s own unofficial showplace… Samara, for example is a cat capital of Russia, Dagestan is a place notorious for its squatter development etc. As for Yoshkar Ola it has the worst roads in all Russia, according to zyalt.

Local papers often cover crazy accidents occuring here. Thus, just recently, one car fell into the hole in the ground while trying to drive into the yard…

Thanks to zyalt for the photos!

    Salt is the Answer!

    Snow, Long cold winter… many months of Daily Salting…

    Would end up with Shitty roads.

      Only in Russia.
      Roads in many nothern places like
      Canada, Finland, Norway or Alaska
      are very good despite of much harsher climate.
      Main reason for shitty roads in Russia is
      that it is a Third World country.

        I am an American and I find that offensive. I really wish you would not insult these people. They are better than most Americans, including myself. They are all highly educated, hard working, family oriented and friendly. Nothing third world at all. The reasons (for the poor roads) are there is so much land, and so few people and wealth in comparison.

          few pople vast lant – IN CITY? Very low quality russian troll detected.

          But in one place you are right – low wealth (thats why its a third world country).
