In this week's ICE, one year after devastating floods hit Central Europe, how is the region recovering? We travel to the Austrian town of Steyr, badly damaged last summer, and also speak to the World Wide Fund for Nature, which says lessons haven't been learned. In our new series on Central Europe's borders, we take a trip to Hlucin in the Czech Republic - an area whose Prussian past now means privileged EU status for many local inhabitants. Also this week, ethnic Hungarians in the Vojvodina launch a petition for Hungarian citizenship, Silesian Air plans to launch cheap flights to European cities from Southern Poland, and will home-grown Slovak products survive EU membership? All that and more in ICE, this week.
