Further upstream river Una, not far away from is another border crossing between Croatia and BiH Kostajnica - Hrvatska Kostajnica. Two small towns now in 2 states divided by river Una.

Another insignificant border crossing dividing two towns Novi Grad (BiH) and Dvor (Croatia).
River Una divides these two towns and crossing is inside the towns like in other cases.
This border crossing is not far away from the one in Dubica.

Very interesting, thanks!

I recognized the building in one of the last pictures, and I thought, that's in Bosanski Novi, so I discovered it is also called Novi Grad.

I hope it will be renovated, as it is very nice.

A request to NA posters: I'd be happy to see more US-Canada border structures. I'm also curious of your experiences, how has it changed since the 9/11 panic.

I don't have any images of the checkpoints handy, but now one must show a passport (or a similar document) in each direction whereas before, Canada and USA citizens only had to (usually) answer a few quick questions.

The checkpoints on the USA side have also been beefed up physically (both on the Canada and Mexico borders), one visible change is that the next car in line is stopped well back from the car that is at the booth.

I have not left the USA since a quick trip into Canada back in 1998.

My brother was in Montreal (and had gone there by car) on 9/11; he was stuck there for a few days because the border was closed. But I can think of way worse places than Montreal to be stuck in. (That's ironic understatement; Montreal's one of my favorite places in the world. Except in the winter.)

Yeah, I always put ´ in Hungarian words wrong. So what I will do from now is that I will just change it every time from "good" to "wrong".

It was as a advert for that film -

there is also a bit in Hungarian

Did you know? The two parts of the village has a total population of about 840 people, almost exclusively (+95%) ethnic Hungarians.

I did not.

That story is so sad. Governments of UA and SR might do a decision quickly. I have never heard if they would like to deal with it. People might vote in village to choose in which state their village will be. I think they will choose Slovakia, lol.

Btw, a bit OT - do you speak Polish?

As any flv it can be dowloaded from Youtube using special applications such as Real Player Downloader.

And in order to be on topic, a recent picture of the dismantling of the spanish-french border checkpoint at AP7-A9 (from newspaper El Punt). Works should be finished by December as expected:

It's really weird there is no agreement between Slovakia and Ukraine stating that people living close to the border can cross it without a visa.

Poland and Ukraine signed similiar one last year. All you need is a document called "permission"

As MGK920 stated we have to now provied a passport. I have a passport card with an RF chip good for North America only and can be used at land crossings and Seaports that require customs. I can not use it for air travel at all. Heres a link with info and a pic of the card. http://travel.state.gov/passport/ppt...card_3926.html

The border crossings into Canada have longer waits depending on the location of the crossing. The border agents have sticks up their asses and ask the most ridiculous questions.
Last year at the Fort Erie, Ontario crossing the border agent asked me and my friends why we were entering Canada. We of course said vacation and to enjoy some Toronto nightlife. The border bitch in return snaps back and says "What, you don't have bars where you're from?" Seriously??
It was at that point I wanted to just grab a handful of her hair and hit the gas pedal, yell some tribal call and drive off into Canada.

I know that is nothing compared to some EU border crossings but after being used to traveling so freely between here and Canada it's an adjustment to be made.
