The United States is bigger and with more states than the European Union, yet, they follow the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MUCTD). The European Union could also adopt the MUTCD, which is a very well-thought and orgnized piece of signage design.

@ koloite: very interesting, thank you. During my trip to northern Norway I noticed panels warning about military restrictions, written in Norwegian, English and Russian (sorry about the lack of quality):

Those signs are somewhere a little bit more to the west on the E6. There is a military terrain that you are allowed to pass, but you are not allowed to go camping or hunting for example.

Neither do I, but you can "quote" his message and try the links directly.

Sorry, my bad
Linking to pictures on Google Sites apparently doesn't work. I uploaded the pictures to Picasa and now it seems to work (just tested on another computer as well where the images are not in my browser cache...)

Thanks for the report of the border between Norway and Russia.
I was on a same trip, last year, and I wanted to go for a visit to some industrial Russian city, just a few km far from the border (there are even tourist agencies offering tours from Kirkenes to visit those Russian cities), but it was soooo annoying to cross the border.
We were supposed to get a visa some weeks before the departure and then strict bureaucracy killed our dreams.

United States is a single country. EU has only been getting more integrated recently. There's a huge difference.

Why is it prohibited to walk around the tripoint? Just curious. Also, wonder if anyone here (rare occurence I guess) been around ROK-DPRK border crossing? Not the JSA in Panmunjom, rather the actual crossings.

Am I correct in that there are no restrictions on crossing the Finland-Norway border?

Yea, if Russia would ever join the Schengen zone, then, of course, you would be able to legally cross there and do that 'lap'.

Norway and Finland are both Schengen

Additionally, Norway & Finland have been part of the Nordic Passport Union for years (along with Demark, Sweden & Iceland), so there haven't been controlled borders for many decades. Indeed, due to the huge area and many small roads, a lot of crossings between Norway, Sweden & Finland were often uncontrolled anyway. Actually, one of the big arguments for Sweden changing from driving on the left to driving on the right was that in a lot of these border areas with Norway & Finland (which both already drove on the right), people didn't know which side of the road to drive on.

@ brisavoine & iMiros: many thanks for the pics. It's always refreshing to see some border crossings outside Europe. Please, post more if you have.
