On my way to Tehran, I had a short stop in the village of Versak, I wanted to photograph its famous and historical bridge. I came across a sign that forbade photographing and filming the bridge. So I hurried to take some pictures of the bridge. The lighting conditions and my position in relation to the bridge were not good. I shared my main post from the village of Versk, which was located 50 meters from the bridge, and you can see two photos of the bridge in the workshop. Of course, this is a small part of the village, most of it is located on the other side of the road that has divided the village into two parts. I borrowed the following text from Wikipedia.

Veresk Bridge
Veresk Bridge is one of the largest railway bridges in Iran, which is located in the heights of Versak village, 27 km south of the city (White Bridge) in Savadkuh city in Mazandaran province. This bridge, which is considered an engineering masterpiece, was put into operation in 1936. The Versak Bridge, which connects the Tehran-North national railway, was built at a height of 110 meters from the bottom of the valley with a span of 66 meters and with basic equipment. Versak Bridge is one of the most important technical works of railway engineering in northern Iran, which was registered as a national monument in September 1977 with the number 1534. Versak is one of the strategic bridges in Iran, which was built by the Danish company Kempsax with a 70-year guarantee. The bridge was named the Victory Bridge by Churchill, then British Prime Minister, during World War II. Also on July 14, 1945, at the suggestion of the Ministry of Roads, the Versailles Bridge was renamed the Victory Bridge.
This bridge is only for train crossings and now Tehran-Sari and Tehran-Gorgan passenger trains cross it several times a day after more than 85 years. Freight and fuel trains also pass through it. Today, in addition to its special importance in the transportation industry, the Versailles Bridge is also one of Iran's tourist attractions.
Paul Versk is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for being more than 61 meters high.
