It's 93 km. The Austrian Empire was already using the metric system in late XIX cetury, but for some reasons, the, now defunct myriameter (10km) was used instead of the kilometer to measure road distances.

Tripoint of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine



Road to Belarus



Road to Ukraine



Road to Russia



Interesting fact is that this tripoint is known as "Three sisters".

Is it legal to cross borders in that tripoint?. Are they any passport control or so?

Afaik there are no border controls between RUS and BY But these countries have no common visa policy (like Schengen countries), so foreigners need two visas to visit both countries.

I don't think there's no passport control between Russia and Belarus. There's no customs though.

Or in case of Serbia none.

Anyway, there are regular border crossings at all three sides before the tripoint, so when you reach it you are already checked.

It seems to be booths in the three countries near the border. Doesn't they?

So you can't get to the tripoint without being checked? That's one of the most interesting tripoints I've seen.

IMO, crossing this railway brigde will approach someone to the most weird and interesting tripoint around the world. Just some metres away

I'm not sure if the Google Maps border lines are completely accurate in that location.
