The most Impressive Roads Of The World

The Atlantic Ocean Road

This Road is in Norway and is about 8 kilometres long with 12 great bridges. I think it is the greatest street in the whole world and one day I really want to drive on it. Most people do it in the winter/fall because of the storms and big waves that make this trip a big adventure for any driver.

The "Road of Death"

This road is located in Bolivia. It is about 60 kilometres long and the most dangerous road in the world.
"One estimate is that 200 to 300 travellers were killed yearly along the road.
Because of the extreme drop-off of at least 600 meters (1,830 feet), single-lane width – most of the road no wider than 3.2 metres (10 ft) and lack of guard rails, the road is extremely dangerous. Further still, rain, fog and dust can reduce visibility. In many places the road surface is muddy, and can loosen rocks from the road." (Taken from Wikipedia)

The Gouliang Tunnel Road

This road is located in China. It is about 1.5 kilometres long. It was build by local villagers in 1977. Many of the workers died during the construction of this street. It is called “the road that does not tolerate any mistakes”.

The Col der Turini

This road is located in France. It is made of 34 hairpins. It is a famous stage of the Monte Carlo Rally and was part of the "Tour de France" a couple of times. I drove on this street 2 times and i really enjoyed the great view and the surprisingly smooth turns.

The Stelvio Pass

This road is located in Italy and is one of the most challenging Roads in the world due to its 48 very narrow hairpins.
I was 14 years old when we drove on this road. That's why I could not drive myself but I felt really really ill after this street and I was glad to be alive.

The Road to Hana

This road is located on Maui and is one of the most idyllic Streets of the world. With it’s 600 hairpin turns and 54 one-lane bridges, blind bends, and narrow pavement edged by cliffs it is a breathtaking Road trip.

And last but definitely not least:

The Autobahn in Germany

The Autobahn is similar to Highways all over the world. The only difference it's that there are many parts without any speed limit. The only parts where you have speed limits are at construction areas, dangerous spots and exits.
Since I live in Germany I drove on the Autobahn many times. And I think it is very much fun to drive with about 180-200 kilometres per hour and a nice Porsche/Audi/BMW/Ferrari gets ahead of you without a problem.

These roads are just some of my favorites.

    Street - a paved public thoroughfare in an urban environment.
    Road - a route between two places which has typically been made to improve convenience.

    These, sir, are roads.

    Ah okay. Sorry I am no native speaker. Thanks for the correction :-)

    And by the way I accidentaly pressed report instead of Reply. My bad there is nothing to report!

    i suggest to avoid further embarrassment, press "edit" at the bottom of the post and change the title to "roads" along with anywhere else you wrote streets.

    I hope I found all of them.
    Like I said. We only have 1 word for streets and roads in german. I did not know that there was any difference.

    Don't worry about it. I'd love for my German to be half as good as your English.
