Definitely this home in the depths is on the Czech side, because under the roof there is car with a Czech license plate and the border runs in that thin ditch.

I would say, it's a few tens of cm next to the ditch. Why? The position of the border stone.

Anyway, the most interesting thing here is this waste container A really international and Schengen one

How is it with the waste containers in the Czech Republic? Do you typically own one or is it delivered by the waste collection company? Or does it depend on the municipality/company, like in Poland?

Maybe the owner of this Czech booth bought this container from a Pole...

The tripoint between Romania, Hungary and Serbia is open only one weekend every year (today and tomorrow) and used as a temporarily crossing point. Serbia is not in the EU and Romania not in the Schengen space.
Sorry, the video is in Romanian, but you can see a part of the "famous" wall raised by Hungary at its Serbian border.

Do they open it for touristic issues at the same time they offer all custom services there?

Yes, it's basically a Slavic word for "ford", meaning a shallow river crossing. There's even some places called BrĆ³d in Poland.

Interestingly, I cannot find such examples at the eastern Polish border. Terespol and Brest are closest to each other, but looking at a map, they seem to be two totally separate towns on both banks of the river. And to have been them also historically.
From what I know, the Eastern border was drawn quite carefully to avoid these problems. However, it's not totally the case - I'm pretty sure Sianki in Bieszczady was split between Poland and the USSR after the war, although it's not a water border.

There is a part of Warsaw called Bródno, it comes from it too.

You can legally cross there one weekend per year, that's all. There is a passport/ID card control though. For the rest of the year it looks like that. As you can see, the road is paved on the Romanian side.

There are some pictures of the tripoint on Google Maps, and the exact place is here.

"Brod" also means ship or vessel.

In Macedonian, I understand. It's well to know - it makes some sense concerning it's origin and the verb "brodzić" (or however it looks like in other Slavic languages).

Wiktionary says that this word means ship also in Serbo-Croatian, or actually, I believe, in the languages which appeared at the moment of the breakup of Yugoslavia.

I am still not really getting how it is with the Serbo-Croatian and the all the local languages. I know that those areas constitute a dialectal continuum, that the language spoken by the local people slightly changes when you move from place to place, and the further someone goes, the more difficult it it to understand others. A similar situation is in Scandinavia. But a language is also a set of words and grammatical rules which constitute it's "official" version, which is used in books, newspapers, in all the media like radio or TV (at least in those countrywide ones) or for lectures at universities. So... Serbo-Croatian was used for those purposes till the breakup of Yugoslavia, and... when the new countries appeared, how did people from each of them know, how the "official" version of their language should look like and differ from the languages of other former Yugoslavia countries? Does anyone still use Serbo-Croatian there, or it's a dead language, replaced by Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian and other languages, which are similar to each other, but have some differences? I understand that none of those languages in its "official" form is used by the people for everyday conversations, they use their local dialects (which is different from Poland, for example, where the meaning of dialects is very little and people normally use the same language as the media in conversations). But it's must be somehow known that, for example, A is the proper word for something in Croatian, and Slovenian has a different word for it - B, how the language should be correctly pronounced, what are the spelling rules and so on.

And another interesting thing is the existence and meaning of dialects in the language at all. Like in Polish, as I already wrote, at least in most of the area of the country, speaking the dialect is something like wearing folk costumes and dancing folk dances. It's a more culture-related thing, not used in practice. Of course, there are some very minor differences in pronunciation, or different words used for some things in different parts of the country (the most notable example is the word for a big wheat-only bread - it's like the word for a doughnut in German, it's different in each city), but there is really few of them, and if I am supposed to talk to someone from the other end of the country, I usually won't notice it at all.

And, supposedly (maybe I am wrong), in Scandinavia or in former Yugoslavia, a person from one end of the country will normally speak visibly different from someone from the other end, and they may even have troubles understanding themselves.
