  • Here's why Russia's Corpse Highway is one of the scariest roads in the world!

  • Officially known as the R504 Kolyma Highway, this Russian road has a far more sinister

  • nickname: The Road of Bones.

  • This is because it was constructed via brutal forced labor from people trapped in Soviet

  • gulags.

  • Potentially as many as a million people died during the 21 year construction period, and

  • their bones were buried under the asphalt.

  • These days, the road is considered a kind of memorial, but eerie things still happen.

  • The brutal cold sometimes brings people taking the road to an untimely end - like a teenage

  • motorist who froze to death on it in 2020 while trying to take a shortcut.
