There's still all that stuff at the border crossings, if that's what you meant. Some of their pix (prior to Schengen) can be found in the SLO thread.

Stara Gradiška border cross on Croatian side is outside town but on the other side of the Sava river bridge, Bosnian border cross is in the narrow street

Interesting, the border posts are being demolished, while on the Spain-Portugal border they are still standing there idle since 1993(i think its 1993, come times in the 90's anyway.)

This crossing (especially the Bosnian side) seems very chaotic to me. Not as ordened as the German-Polish border before Schengen.

It seems one of the most rural crossings between D/PL to me. When looking at GE you can get a nice view of this crossing too.

uf, you should see it for real. Bosnian side has limited space because it is in the city which is at that side of river. so as soon as you come off from the bridge, you come to border crossing. around are houses and road fom bridge till border crossing is surrounded by wire net. as it is one of the most important HR/BIH border crossings, line of trucks waiting to cross the border goes through whole city. it is upleasantly scene and i hope there will be new border crossing soon because this is quite unacceptable.

Border crossing Bozsok (H) - Rechnitz (A)

This small border crossing between Bozsok, Hungary and Rechnitz, Austria was opened in 1991. It was open daily between 6 and 22 hours. Only Hungarian and Austrian (from 1995, all EU citizens too) were allowed to cross here. The checkpoint lost its job on the 21st December 2007, when Hungary joined the Schengen-zone.

View from Hungary:


View from Austria:


This is Austria:


Welcome to Austria:


The border-stone:


Welcome to Hungary:


The border-line itself is between the two columns, with bushes on the Hungarian and a horse-riding path and sunflowers in Austria:


20 years ago it would have been impossible for me to walk up and down here, since the iron-curtain still existed. As the matter of fact, the real iron curtain was a few hundred meters back on the Hungarian side (with fences, outposts and gravel lane...), but now there's no trace of it fortunately

Cute little (former) border crossing.


The border crossing between Egypt and Sudan on the coastal "highway". When a country can't even pave major roads, you know it's dirt poor:


Moving south, to the border crossing between Sudan and Eritrea on the same coastal "highway". Road?


Is there any road at all between northwestern and southeastern Eritrea (except through Ethiopia)? Anyway, Djibouti-Somalia:


Does anyone have any idea what this might be (sorry, no border crossing)? It looks like a crossing over a dry river. It's located on the road north of Port Sudan, there are several of them:


No border crossing either, but finally a nice road in Sudan (between Khartoum and Port Sudan):

That road is courtesy of the Bin Laden Construction Company.
