Russia doesn't need new Iron courtain. EU needs it. However, there is one big differention. Iron courtain had to keep people inside borders, Schengen border has to keep people outside borders.

Also, the yellow line is NOT in the right place in that image. The actual border is the grayish line between the checkpoints.

I was stopped and checked at a checkpoint about 50km inside the US, when travelling away from the Mexican border. It was on highway 67 travelling north from Presidio, Tx.

Is this normal in the border regions?

I don't know. Names of Slovak Rača in official historical documents were Recha, Racha, Okolj, Račišča, Résca, Ratsesdorf, Račišdorf. It doesn't matter, they have good wine there. There is also one mountain in North-Central Slovakia called Veľká Rača in Oščadnica municipality. There is big ski center.

It's even in Schengen border. 50 km from the border is border zone where you can be checked. Police and army have special rights, they cen even enter your estate without your permission.

Very interesting. I thought that at most of the European borders you didn't have to stop.

Only between already Schengen members you dont have to stop. But the police/borderguard/thewayyoucallit has the right to stop you 50kms inside the country.

light blue - Implementing through partnership with a signatory state

You don't, the police/border officials have the right to stop you in a border area if they want to but most of the time the borders are open and you don't have to stop.

They would only stop you if they had reason to suspect you of an offence or if there was a general security alert they might temporarily impose border checks.

Although Croatia isn't in Schengen Croatian citizents don't need passports to enter Italy, Slovenia or Hungary. But you need to have your identity card of course.

Yeah, like with the World Championships, for instance. I remember the traffic jams at the border line with Germany.

A bit off-topic, but we have some weird villages too. Nederland (Netherlands), Oostenrijk (Austria), Engeland (England), America... Seems like they're doing for it.

but when you land by plane or boat, you don't have to pass too complicated border controls.

@KHS: nor Sna Marino, Lithuania and few more countries (7 i guess), but i have never liked to go abroad without passport

The UK isn't in Schengen but I don't think i've ever been checked when coming into the country by boat, the procedures are definitely not complicated, maybe just wave a passport, maybe not even that.

because you're not from "suspicious" country. we must fullfill some imigration forms, that usually takes 15-45 minutes. but it's only for UK. when we enter Schengen zone, we get the entrance sign (as everybody) and if we change country (by a plane or boat), we they just check if we have entrance sign (the sign is this ink thing that policeman at bordercrossing puts into your passport, i don't know in english )
