That vid's been around for a while. It's the Lefortovo tunnel in Moscow. The temperature apparently gets down to -38 so when water leaks in the spins are understandable. Hang on and enjoy the ride...

Quote:
Lefortovo tunnel (Russian: Лефо́ртовский тоннель) is a road tunnel in the Lefortovo District in Moscow, Russia, opened in 2003. It is a part of the Third Ring Road. At 3.2 km long, it is the third longest in-city tunnel of Europe (after the Södra länken in Stockholm at 4.7 km, and the Dublin Port Tunnel at 4.5 km).

The tunnel runs under the Yauza River, and water leaks in at some points. The temperature can reach as low as −38 degrees Celsius (as during the winter of 2005), causing the water on the road's surface to freeze.

It has been nicknamed "The Tunnel of Death" owing to its high accident rate and a viral video circulating around the Internet compiling footage of vehicle accidents recorded by monitoring cameras.
Hats off to the bendy bus driver. He must have needed a change of kecks after that.

Doesn't have to be in EU to be in Europe... and yes, Western Russia is part of Europe.
There are soooo many small countries out that way that I never even heard of until Eurovision
