This bridge seems to be designed based on the border bridge between Panama and Costa Rica ;-)





Seriously, the roads in Ukraine are so bad that the border bridge in Sighetu Marmatiei did not surprise me. In Ukraine most street have huge potholes, then they limit speed to 30 km/h or sometimes 10 km/h in long, long street villages. The purpose: The traffic police an stop you whenever they want and charge you huge fines. Their attitude and open corruption makes driving with a non-Ukrainian car unpleasant. Too bad since the country is beautiful and can be easily reached from most central european cities.

In Romania - relatively good streets and no abusive police controls. You could see the difference between a country inside and outside EU - simply crossing a river.

There were many bridges over the Tisa river when that part of Ukraine was actually Slovakia, Poland and Romania. After the war, none was rebuilt. There are very few border crossings between RO and UA.

It's been there for a while I think. I seem to remember that the French already finished a beautiful road right up to the border as the Brazilians were still grovelling stones.

Brisavoine used to post lots of pictures from French Guyana. Every time he or she (sorry) mentioned the "French-Brazilian border" it caught me off guard and I had to think about that one for a second.

What's an Estonian van doing in Suriname? European driver licences are not even valid over there. Apparently if you want to drive in Suriname you have to take another test...

He has an international driving licence with him also. From the blog I can read that he needed an insurance for Suriname and all other documents what he had were ok for entering. He got a permit for 30 day temporary import for car (not sure if it's correct English name for this) without a problem. At the exit this permit was taken away and that's all.

Why i'm not suprised that you as a Romanian, reflexively not mentioning Hungary at all.. It is too hard for you i guess, but at least try to stick to the historic facts! Intentional disclosure of certain historical periods of the history is not considered as civilized nor clever..

You see, those bridges you mentioning were built, way before those countries even existed and this city was Hungarian in Hungarian kingdome. Wood bridge...What a progress after 50 years.Congrats.
There was modern iron bridge on the Tisza at Máramarossziget, built by Hungarians.

Iron bridge of Máramarossziget(Sighetu Marmatiei) in 1911!

Calm your tits! He didn't mention Hungary because it was not pertinent to the matter at hand. I know that it bothers you greatly, but not everything in the area revolves around Hungary.

Long story short, there were 11 bridges across the Tisa River between Romania and Czechoslovakia during the Interwar period. When exactly those bridges were built and what materials were used is virtually irrelevant. What matters is that the Soviets blew up all those bridges at the end of the WW2, after they annexed the area north of the river from the Czechoslovaks. And so far, this lame one-way wooden bridge is the only one that has been rebuilt.



Try to focus on that instead of looking everywhere for 'anti-Hungarian' Romanians or whatever paranoia you suffer from.

Sisimoto, you are throwing things on me without even knowing me. The reason is exactly like Laurentzius said.

And please stop that paranoia, fyi, I have and do not share any of that anti Hungarian sentiment you are implying. I grew up in Banat around German and Hungarian language, besides Romanian. While my Hungarian revolves around just some few words, I have many Hungarian friends.

My great grandmother from my fathers side was actually Hungarian by the name Füzöszy (not sure if exactly like that spelled), born in former Austria-Hungary. She married a German, Wingert. They had 2 girls, one of them my grandmother, who married a Romanian. So in my family I heard all these 3 languages, predominately German by the elders with whom I also spoke German.

To conclude, I grew up in multi-ethnic Banat, actually despise Romanian nationalism and anti Hungarian propaganda and leave no occasion to combat the people that want to share it with me too.
