The road is 10.87 km (6.75 mi) long and links the small towns of Zapadny Kildin and Vostochny Kildin. It’s an old military track built by prisoners in 1920-30’s. It’s mostly gravel, but the most famous section is called Golden kilometer or Kilometer Rokossovskogo. It’s a 1200m section of pebble pavement.
