Dronckaert is probably the old Flemish word.
It's the name of a local hamlet. Although in modern spelling it is called Dronkaard (drunkard in English).

I remember driving on that border crossing on the pre-schengen era and it wasn't very problematic or big as I only remember some police randomly stopping certain cars (pretty much like Switzerland before schengen that didn't really enforce checks with the EU but just stopped 1 car out of 30 most of the time). Most of the jams were from people stopping to exchange money and such... At least this is my experience the 3 or 4 times I drove on that area on the late 80's.

Danube is the border between Romania and Serbia near Drobeta Turnu Severin and Orsova (RO). The train I'm travelling with right now passes right next to the Danube.

Left - Romania
Right- Serbia



Here is the opposite:



Barajul Porţile de Fier I (Iron Gates I Dam) - it has a road on top and it's a border crossing for cars & trucks:



Vama Porţile de Fier I (Iron Gates I border crossing):


Note the 2 border patrol cars in the lower right part of the picture

The Danube is so large there because it's in fact a lake, behind Portile de Fier I dam.

Neum ("BiH") after Croatia in EU

Maybe some forumers from Croatia can give some more detailed informations, as i felt the checking procedures are getting already more intense, i saw some severe works on new checkpoints on both HR sides on the Neum border. (Sorry fellows, no pics since it was dark already)

Im just asking myself, will there be a regime as it is for now for tourists and other people who just have to cross to go to Dubrovnik region, or "inner" Croatia with transit lines?

Im assuming, since the Neum borders will become EU borders, everybody has to be controlled, got Passport or ID scanned and so on... if this is really going to happen Dubrovnik is going to become a kind of totally locked off from the croatian mainland?

Any information or links to croatian topics are gladly appreciated. Thx!

it won't be any different than now IMO. passports are checked either way, and it won't be schengen border (for some time).

I think it is because there is reflective paint on Austrian side.
