The Beograd – Bar Line

A trip along one of the most fascinating railroad lines in Europe. Built only in the 1970s it connects Belgrade in Serbia with the Montenegrinian cities of Podgorica and Bar at the Adriatic coast. It already is very scenic at the Bosnian border with numerous tunnels and tall bridges, but as the border to Montenegro is crossed it gets downright spectacular. Sometimes you are that far above the valley ground, some people say you think you are flying. The whole trip culminates in the crossing of the tallest railroad bridge in the world (?), Mala Rijeka Bridge before the line descend towards the plains of Podgorica and Lake Shkoder. The last part of the video shows a visit to Mala Rijeka bridge on the next day.
