1) resize your images to a reasonable size (preferably not wider than 1024 pixels).
2) upload them to an image hosting service, for example ************
3) copy the IMG forum link and paste them into your post

^ Thanks for the report too, bigm1983. Very interesting. In your first pic, is that the Romanian checkpoint of Borş?

I found this video of the border crossing between Belgium and France. As you can notice they completely removed the booths and repaved the track. But which border crossing is it?

I think it's the E42 border crossing between Tournai and Lille.

So Belgium started dismantling its border crossings. Uhm if anyone is going to pass through other border crossings between Belgium and France and Luxembourg, please inform us if something changed.

Actually, I think France started dismantling it's border crossings. I think there are few EU countries that have been in Schengen for this long with so many physical border stations still present.

So I will trust you, when France will dismantle the border crossing in Perthus Ok but the one from the video is on the belgian side. So if you are planning any journey to France , hopefully you will post something here.

No, those are German signs. Non-motorway, non-local signage is always yellow in Germany.

If you plan to visit some border crossings in Hungary, I recommend you to visit border bridge between Esztergom and Štúrovo(SK)

Damn, that's pretty confusing.
Those are supposed to be temporary road signs due to works in Italy.

EU should try to impose a unique standard for all the countries.

Norwegian - Russian border

The pictures below were taken in May 2006. We went on a road trip to northern Norway including both the North Cape and the Russian border. We did not cross the border into Russia.

A sign at the border indicating the opening hours


Bi-lingual sign for Kirkenes


The border station at Storskog


An old border crossing not very far away from the current border crossing


The border is indicated by yellow (Norway) and red/green (Russia) border poles.


There are numerous signs in the area telling you not to cross the border


This is a little to the south of Storskog on the road 885 to Nyrud. The river is the border. The town you can see on the other side of the river is Nikel, a polluted Russian industrial town. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...Nikel&t=h&z=11


This is not an official border crossing, but the tripoint between Russia, Norway and Finland. It can only be reached by foot. We went there at 01:00 AM (yes, in the middle of the night) and were promptly accompanied by a Norwegian soldier who made sure we did not cross into Russia. You are not under any circumstances allowed to walk around the tripoint.


Yet another sign stating the rules...


The border between Norway (on the right) and Finland (on the left) seen from the tripoint.


On the way back to the car we were allowed to walk alongside the border poles. The border is in the middle between the poles.
