It's a very common sign in Italy. It means that the river can grow very fast because there is a dam upstream that can open its gates without notice. I saw the sign on many other streams, lastly on the footpath beside the stream in Toscolano Maderno, near Lake Garda, because upstream there is artificial Lago di Valvestino.

For historical correctness, this is not the Iron Curtain ("From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the Continent"). I don't remember what happened on 22.12.1989, but knowing German cynicism and the tendency to audaciously rewrite history to fit their view, I'd completely ignore this sign's educational value.

Yep and that can happend in just few minutes,you can walk thru the river and a few minutes later the water is 3m deep.so when you take a walk better take your fish with you and not your dog in ulrichen/switzerland i also saw such a sign,not on the young rhone that flows hru ulrichen but on a small river that is comming down the nufenenpass and joins the rhone in ulrichen

"Danger, fat snakes" ?!?

We used to go to Bibione for summer holidays a lot when I still was a child, but we never have encountered fat snakes there. Many lizards, a toad, yes, and of course billions of "zanzare", but no snakes.

It's in a forest outside the town.

That day the Brandenburger Tor was officially opened by Helmut Kohl. I don't know if it opened exactly at 11 o'clock. But you're right. The iron curtain was way before that open.
You can debate if Yugoslavia was behind the iron curtain. Imo it wasn't, I think the Yugoslavs had less travel restrictions than their Eastern Bloc neighbours. And also what I can remember as a little kid that in my experience Yugoslavia was not repressive as Bulgaria for example.

I would say 40 (average)

Seriously speaking, I don't think that you will be fined if you do 50 on this road. You can easly win the appeal if you get fined...

At least in a Hungarian driver's ed book, I read that given two contradictory signs, you have to adhere to the stricter one.

So here, 30

Would be nice if you could add the two
