The austrian border control was thestrongest on our whole trip and also harshly. It was not easy to arrive the border ponton against the strong stream.
The castle Devin is positioned at the confluence of March und Danube on the fringes of Carpathian Mountains.
Today the castle is an open-air museum. The sowakian border control must be here but we have not seen it, because in our book was written that we have to clear inward in Bratislava.
On this part we had the greatest stream on the complete danube
Bratislava is connected with Vienna by Speed Ferry.

The villages are far from the river and so we see only wooded banks.
Normaly this buoy ist in the other side of the river.
