Old(?) border crossing between FYROM and Greece, on the eastern shore of big Prespa lake, between Dolno Dupeni(FYROM) and Agios Achilleios(GR).
location

Erased signs for Greece:


Approaching the border:


The actual border is 500m from here:


It isn't allowed to continue further south, as a polite border guard told us.
Maybe someone knows when this border crossing stopped working?

This could easily be interpreted as a border between Serbia and Macedonia

It's funny how this thread is predominantly colonized by the Eastern European forumers. It must say something...
