You've got to be kidding . Clearly funding wasn't an issue when they built this.

The story behind it?
Back to WW1 and the need for strategically important supply routes. The Austro-Hungarian Army built this marvel in only 3 months to supply the Piave-Front in 1918. Up to 1400 workers (incl. the local old, lame and kids) bust their guts in 3 shifts a day to cut this thing out of the rock. It’s still an engineering marvel by today’s standards.
