Hmm, "Kalin" is a Slovenian last name and according to this website, their food offer is "home-made Slovene dishes", not Croatian. Also, it says "gostilna" (Slovenian) at the entrance, not "gostionica" (Croatian):

Are you sure about that? It sounds absurd, to be honest.

Same restaurant is in Croatian business register so I thought it is Croatian.

Verso, here is one article about that restaurant (in Croatian, I hope you can understand it): http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,,4234380,00.html

And here you can see original address

Obrežje 6, 10432 Bregana, Croatia? Obrežje is a Slovenian village, not Croatian.

Obrežje is mentioned to be in Slovenia according to Google Earth & so is the restaurant.

Maybe I'll be able to confirm it, but ... only this summer

Both nations are in Schengen area so there's free pass there.

They were the same country until 20 years ago, did they establish border crossings when they broke up?

Sure. The Kúty border station was one of the most strict ones west of Ukraine.

Český Těšín / Cieszyn (CZ/PL) is also interesting and feels even more like one town. 3 bridges connecting both sides (soon probably 4 - a pedestrian bridge is to be built), on the Czech side everything written in both languages (on the Polish side only at the shops up to 50 meters from the border).
But when you enter the town, for the first time, on the Polish side & enter the market square, you don't feel like the border is just 300m away. Anyway, I love this Czech/Polish town !

Frankfurt an der Oder / Słubice (D/PL) is also interesting & quite strange:
A) the Polish town is smaller but feels like more alive (more people hanging around, etc.).
B) In Frankfurt an der Oder, there's a strange contrast between
B-1) - on the one hand - brand new houses on the Oder in front of Poland + the city center, which is close to the bridge & looks quite modern; &
B-2) - on the other hand - lots of empty flats in buildings. Even in those near the brand new houses on the Oder !

Słubice has got quite a few shops with both languages and the only ARAL station left in Poland (all the others have been turned into BP's a couple of years ago), whereas in Frankfurt an der Oder, the only things written in both languages are roadsigns for pedestrians to find the interesting places of the German side.

Another border that feels like that: Mouscron (B)/ Wattrelos (F). I remember crossing there once & having the suprise that the houses looked similar but the roadsigns suddenly turned from capital letters into small letters on blue roadsigns

&, of course, Hendaye (F)/Irún (E)

Are there, beside Český Těšín / Cieszyn and the one I cited, villages or cities across a border with the same or a similar name?
