Voroshilovsky Bridge in Rostov-on-Don has become the first river crossing in the world, which was built using glue joints, with no bolts and welding. What’s also unique in the bridge is that it connects two parts of the world, as one theory is that the boundary between Europe and Asia goes just along the Don River.
The motorway-pedestrian Voroshilovsky Bridge connects not only the banks of the Don, but also Rostov-on-Don with the satellite cities of Azov and Bataysk. The 450 meter-long bridge was built in the 1960s. The river crossing was reconstructed in 2016-2017: two new bridges were built in its place, aiming to improve the situation with the accessibility of the left bank of the Don, where a stadium has been built for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
