We hve a similar river border here in Germany, too.

It's the Main (NOT to be pronounced like the English word "main" ! ), the so-called "Weißwurstäquatoir" ("white sausage equator"), which can act like some sort of language barrier, too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wei%C3%9Fwurst%C3%A4quator

There even exists a similar border in Swiss : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%B6stigraben

There exist even more borders like this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isogloss
