Interesting pictures from the border Spain and Portugal.

We again go to Central Europe



Poland and Czech Republic border (near Racibórz).

The border stone marks the line of the border.

The house is in Poland.










The border line is along axis of the road.
Right side - Czech Republic. Left - Poland












The wayside shrine is in Poland.
From right side -the border stone








Border line distributes a field.

Field ploughed this is Poland.












The Schengen Agreement destroyed Polish -Czech border in 2007.













The normal border crossing is the kilometre farther

Thank you very much for your pictures Markowice 10

These pictures represent the border of the European Union. It is the border between Spain and Morocco in the Spanish Northern African cities of Ceuta and Melilla.

Wouldn't a better title be "International border crossings"?

That's way Albania built highway from Kosovo border to Durres,so they can take ferry from Albania to Italy and go away to Europe.That is the best way for Kosovo passports to travel.

I know what 1 people means, but the sentence is entirely wrong. The US-Mexican border separates more than just El Paso and the random Mexican town. It's a border between two different nations, thus two different peoples.

I meant "nation" as ethnicity, not citizenship. I think "people(s)" is more like a tribal expression, although I'm not sure.

I once saw something about the India-Bhutan border on TV. It looked somehow like this one.

Geez is that road still not finished? I thought it was U/C years ago.

I was in that area in 2001.

Both D and CZ parts are ready, waiting for PL part to be completed. Hopefully, next year the construction on PL territory shall begin...

I have photos of German side as well, there is a similar road, heading Poland, ending with a huge slope where a Neisse/Nysa/Nisa bridge is supposed to be...

That road doesn't look very well constructed. Does anyone know if there's a centre line painted inside the tunnel, to reduce the risk of head-on collisions?
