  • I've never seen a double-dam before. The Austrian have built a marvel in the mountains way back in the 40s and 50s, plugging a river stream on an extremely high point, using a two dams in parallel. A lower third dam is located downstream. The ticket cost covers two bus rides and a unique looking lift that gets you all the way up to the upper double-dam. Be aware that it might get a little bit chilly up there.
  • Something failed very badly about the transportation today. We had to wait for hour and 45 minutes in line just to be able to get a ticket and board the bus. Either come in very early, or prepare yourself for an awful lot of waiting. The views are amazing though.
