Two railway overpasses, until 2003 property of Agency of Agricultural Property of the Treasury (Agencja Wlasnosci Rolnej Skarbu Panstwa) and city of Goldap, which were financially unable to prevent overpasses from destruction. Bought for 31000 dollars by private entrepreneur. Need immediate repair. Overpasses were intensively used for bungee-jumping until 2001 as highest bridges in Poland.
