Abstract

The Tisza River Basin is shared by five nations: Ukraine, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and Serbia-Montenegro. The river itself is the frontier along several kilometers between Ukraine and Romania, Ukraine and Hungary and between Slovakia and Hungary. All blessings and all disasters a river can bring are also shared by the five nations. For people living close to the river, it is their source of survival, their friend, their partner, and their enemy. In local languages she is a female. They love her, they fight with her, but they cannot live without her.
