Navigation on the section of the Danube River between Bratislava and Gabčíkovo dam has been suspended due to ice floes, the SITA newswire reported.

The State Navigation Administration's Jana Vadkertyová told SITA there is a compacted ice field in Gabčíkovo's Hrušov basin which makes navigation unsafe and that the ban will be lifted after the waterway is free of ice.
