IMO on the border SK/A it lacks of road connections. you should build some.
"Kompa" (Ferry) in Angern an der March. : )

True, true. There is lack of bridges on the river Morava/March but more needed are bridges on the river Ipeľ/Ipoly. About 50 of them were destroyed during the WW2, in last 3 years 2 of them were re-built.

On the river March, there is just this bridge in Hohenau -









Just one lane



View



Willkommen in Niederösterreich!



Few km away is border of Czech rep., Austria and Slovakia. It is in the middle of the river Morava/March.







One new bridge (just for pedestrians) might be U/C this year in Bratislava -

Exactly at the Morrocco/Algeria border. What I don't understand is that sign written in... Chinese .
But also rather handily in Arabic and French. As has been stated, there is presumably a Chinese engineering firm involved.

I really like these Magyarország signs. I just can't remember Hungarian for republic = köztársaság.

I think it's funny that 'Magyar köztársaság' is written in the flag.

You could also add a green line indicating the border between the Austrian districts of Eisenstad-Umgebung and Neusiedl am See, it hits the A/H border at the same point. (I just searched the location in Google Earth)

I didn't know about this island.

This one looks also nice.

It is not possible? There is such a sign on a bridge between Esztergom and Párkány (Stúrovo).

That sign image means 'NO ENTRY', so no going past that sign between those hours (midnight to 05:00).

Naturschutzgebiet = natural protection area

These are rare though. I know of a few in the Netherlands but none have a significant traffic function.

Many small roads, which became border crossing points after the Schengen enlargement, were closed down by Austria for stupid reasons...


Except bicycles and horse carts

The same here. They didn't open one road for some silly reasons - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwPTh8t7NNw
