On the benches by the water you cansit and at the same time watch the wonderful connection of the fast-flowing Danube and the calm, mud-covered Moravia. It is fascinating to see how heavy cargo ships make their way against the strong current. In addition, the place is also interesting for its history. During the time of the Iron Curtain, the confluence of the Danube and Moravia was the border of the Eastern Bloc. This fact is reminded by the monument that stands right at the confluence. It is a place that reminds us of a time when many people risked their lives trying to escape to the west.
