Is it this place?

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Berovo...src=6&t=h&z=18

Then it is located on Macedonian side of the border. Looking on the map you may notice that there is no road going there from Bulgaria. It would be interesting if anyone from Macedonia or Bulgaria can explain why they didn't open that border

Yes , that was my curiosity too ... it seems like a project started and abandoned or something like this ... silly me .. i didn`t even took notice to look a bit more carefully to see that the roads don`t link together from Bulgaria to Macedonia or viceversa .. from what i`ve seen there are actually roads but not one single segment of tarmac ... at least on the bulgarian side , the road looks like this ...
.. as for the macedonian side didn`t found any pictures of the road ...

This is usually the case - I arrived in Israel at the land border with Egypt at Taba/Eilat (sorry no photos! but a short description here ), and was offered a stamp on paper. But here it was a waste of time, as an exit stamp at Taba is just as "offensive" to, eg Syrians, as an Israeli stamp. I have heard from others arriving by air that sometimes they stamp a piece of paper automatically, sometimes you have to ask. For me, the point is moot, since I have a new passport since then!

I like this picture with the Big Ben National Park. I think it shouldn't be a border. A beautiful place like this one shouldn't be divided.

While waiting on Saturday before trucks could drive in Slovakia, I got bored and went up to this viaduct between both borders and took a few pictures from up there.
1. View to Hungarian side.


2. Slovakian side.


3. During the summer Slovakia is closed for trucks on Saturdays untill 20:00.

Not a road, but here is the craziest border ever.
There are some Northkorean tunnels that lead to South Korea. The latter found these, and opened its part of one to the public. This photo was taken ignoring the ban of taking photos, but here is it:


Just after that door lies the border between South and North Korea, the last standing cold war border.

When a border can be strongest than what you want...


In the middle of the Pyrenees, at Puigcerda, an international hospital was built. It is located just a few kilometres from the border in the mainest town of the area and can be used ever by Spanish or French citizens. There is not a lot of population in the area in France and it helps to have health assistance there.
Should a French citizen go to that hospital he will use as if he goes to an another French hospital. The rest... for administrative and invoices tasks, but it is public hospital at all.


There are, however, some problems with the border. One of the trying to solve it.

1- The hospital is at Spain... and French babies born there are born abroad at all. For the law it doesn't matter if it is the nearest hospital for the mother and has an agreement to use it. The baby was born abroad and has to be registered at the French consulate at Barcelona. For all business in the future he will have to ask born documentation to that consulate or to the embassy at Madrid.

Problem can be solved with a change in French laws.

2- Should a person death in the hospital (a long illness, an accident, etc...) he was death abroad if he was French.
EU is very strong in this area and Death people can cross a border only in closed coffins. That makes relatives will not be able to see it (the can do it in the hospital before closing coffin). Coffin cannot be opened after crossing the border and doesn't allow cremation.

It is strange that having the first binational hospital, where people go there not only because it is the nearest hospital but because it is the hospital related for his area... and later they have so many problems with the border.


It has been required to UE to make an exception with that hospital

Problem can be solved if some enterprising funeral director opens a funeral home in Catalunyan territory to cater to the need of family and friends to have a proper open-casket funeral for their loved ones. Family and friends of French decedents can cross into Catalunya for the funeral wake and then close the casket and drive to the cemetery in France for burial just like if the person had died in France.

If you pan to the west a bit, the great expressway to Pyongyang begins a short distance to the west on the main access road.
