It would mean that in direction Austria, you would first pass an exit Customs control and then identity control. In direction Hungary, you would pass the entry identity control and then Customs.

Weird to have two entirely separate areas rather than just one big hut.
It is/was very typical for Hungarian border crossings to have them separate. At Röszke are also separate booths but are under one roof when you enter Hungary.

A lot of countries have/had their passport and custom controls separate. Examples I remember: Bulgaria, Serbia, Turkey, Slovenia and Romania.

May also be the case with two wealthy and developed countries: Switzerland and Austria have separate booths along their border - each country its control post on its side of the Rhine ...

Duna is the Hungarian word. The Komarom/Komarno area has a Hungarian ethnolinguistic majority.

So what? This is English language part of forum. Would you say for the new bridge in Belgrade that it was built on the Dunav river?

In English I usually use the correct English exonyms if they're available. In Italian I mostly use Italian exonyms, except when they are old-fashioned and virtually-never-heard-of (like some Dalmatian islands and small towns, called almost universally with their Croatian name although they had an Italian name during the Republic of Venice).

I insist everybody must call the river Tonava in all discussions I, Me and Myself are present.

Why did you drive into that pit thing, and more to the point, why is it there?
