Which road exactly is it?

Btw, is there any plan to connect H5 - "Istriska(u) cesta(u)" with Croatian A9?

That's incredible! What a mess!
I experienced those floods last weekend, neverending rain for two days!
All roads between Italy and Slovenia were flooded too, but nothing similar to Dragonja happened in Rabojez on the Italian-Slovenian border.

Rabujez/Rabuiese is on an expressway, so I suppose it lies higher than Dragonja.

It's the Slovenian G11.

A 4-lane expressway is planned there (H5), but not so soon.

Yeah, it`s not so far but not so close as 2,5 km from Bratislava Castle to Austria and 15 km to Hungary.

No. These are actually Carpathian Mountains and it is the only part of these mts in Austria. Tatras mts are part of Carpathian.

And for you to imagine how close is our Capital to Austria, I bet in a few years this villages will be just a pure Slovak.

I was thinking of Carpathian but said it wrong. anyway, my point was that it's not the Alps, which are "Austrian" but that it's something "Slovakian" lost in Austria.

I think he means that Bratislavan suburbia is spreading into Austria, thus making Austrian villages close to Bratislava Slovakian speaking.

Then again, maybe he doesn't mean that.

I also noticed the "Pressburger Bundesstrasse" on the Austrian side and the "Viedenská cesta" on the Slovakian side (Pressburg being German for Bratislava and it's former name).

Of course.

There are already some villages with schools learning Slovak language and you can see there Slovak adverts, sometimes when cashier see you are from Slovakia says "Dobrý deň" or starting speaking Slovak. (what is rare)

But if I am sure the biggest minority of Slovaks (from Bratislava) is in Hungarian village Rajka.

and there is also in Bratislava road to Kittsee called "Kopčianska cesta" (Kittsee=Kopčany) and in Kittsee road to Bratislava (part Kopčany, beacause village was divided to 2 parts) called Pressburger strasse.

The same thing is taking place in eastern Germany, just across the border from Szczecin, a Polish city very similar in size to Bratislava. For example the German town Locknitz, 25 km west of Szczecin and 10 km from the border, is becoming more and more Polish

In Ljubljana there's also Dunajska cesta (vienna's road), but all that I think that's something left from the common country we all 've been in once.
