The former Boquillas crossing remains closed[/p]Crossings Remain Closed[p=30, 2, left] "As a result of a 2002 US Customs and Border Protection decision, there are NO authorized crossings in Big Bend National Park. Crossing at Boquillas, Santa Elena, or other locations along the Rio Grande is prohibited. The closest legal ports of entry are Del Rio and Presidio, Texas.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office has indicated that it will prosecute any criminal violations regarding any illegal crossings. If you re-enter the United States at any point within Big Bend National Park, you may be liable for a fine of not more than $5,000 or imprisonment for up to one year, or both. "

More information:[p=30, 2, left]The U.S. Border Patrol also mans checkpoints on the highways leading to Big Bend National Park. The National Park Service has provided information on border crossings, legalities and how both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals can avoid trouble.

1989: The Berlin Wall, Before and After

As I said here, "perhaps the best monuments to the victory of freedom in Berlin are those things that are no longer there: The border crossing checkpoints … where for 28 years traffic was blocked and one part of a city was kept from seeing the other part."

Here are two pictures. The first I took of the border crossing checkpoint at Heinrich-Heine-Strasse in May of 1982:

The second I took of the same place on Heinrich-Heine-Strasse in May of this year:

year 2009 (i.e. before Liechtenstein entered Shengen)

Customs of Liechtenstein...


And Austrian ones:


The funny thing is that the border control of Liechtenstein are actually made by the Swiss (Liechtenstein doesn't have its own Customs Office)

I will try to present you few close border crossings between Croatia and BiH. They are very close one to another. Northern Bosnian border with Croatia is all the way river Sava and than later Una.

1st border crossing is Gradiska and it is the only significant crossing out of these taht will be presented.

Croatia and Bosnia for more than 100 years were one country so crossings between those two are numerous and very often in the city centres, because the towns were built like it is the same city. Some towns like Gradiska is suffering because the border crossing is dividing town in two and is complicating every day life of the citizens.

Liechtenstein isn't yet in Schengen, only Switzerland entered it last year, so control on the Austrian border remains (but you can avoid it over Switzerland ).

That Dutch N280 was once planned as A68, a motorway from A2 to the German border. Only a small section west of Roermond was built as a motorway. The N280 was upgraded recently to a 2x2 expressway between Roermond and the German border, and there are plans to upgrade the rest of N280 to an expressway as well.

Like Andorra . But if you are a Schengen area citizen you can enter Andorra without passport.
