It is one of the most famous streets in the world. The road is famous for the famous part of the Russian hill, which consists of steep slopes.
The most famous part of the road is located on the Russian hill, between Hyde Street and Leavenworth Street, where the road has eight deep hairpin curves that gave the road the recognition of the most marginal road in the world.
This stretch was built in 1922 due to the need to reduce the slope by 27% of the hill. It is 400 meters long and has a red brick floor, reserved exclusively for passing cars down the road.
The permitted speed limit in this segment is 8 km / h.
