These are the ones that I know of (and/or drove through)
There is one between Bulgaria and Greece on the check point Ilinden - Exochi (near the towns of Gotse Delchev and Drama). It is an artificial tunnel, though (bear protection).

Wow, I love this building. It is good to see than even border crossing can be nicely designed and aesthetic.

Found it! It's the border between China and Myanmar (Burma) near Mong La.

Is the whole movie as good as this clip? I may consider watching it in spare time.
I think as well that Poland and Italy are very common. :-)

Well, this is refreshing and thank you for doing it. You're right, it's time for a break, cause I've seen tons of East European borders by now . It's a pity that Asian, African or South American users rarely visit this thread to post their borders.

They don't cross borders as easy and often like we do.

I must say in the movie it was really exaggerated. In my village in Central Italy we never lock doors. I didn't even know that such things as locks for bicycles existed until I moved to Bologna

Plus, in such places where border controls are actively enforced it is generally against the law to take pictures.

My statement was not referred only to crime or other "negative" things but to the driving style, too. Poland and Italy seems to me a little bit chaotic but of very nice mentality. :-)

Border is reopened for cars between Sátoraljaújhely and Újhely (Slovenské Nové Mesto) HUN-SVK.

It was closed in 1987. Since then border crossing was allowed here for pedestrians and cyclists.
