because the border crossing is not meant to be there. It is in the city center, and no one expected for Yugoslavia ti split. So no one left space for border crossing.

This is after the border crossing on road E65 from Croatia (Dubrovnik area) into Bosnia-Hercegovina (Neum area). Note that the border crossing procedure seemed more relaxed here than other Bosnia-Croatia border crossings. It is hard to drive anywhere from here except back into Craotia since the road between Neum and rest of Bosnia is really curvy and very narrow. It about 3 m paved and some bad gravel on the side. When meeting a car one must drive into the gravel. I worried about damaging the paint by touching bushes. I met two buses and a few trucks, not suitable road for them.

Maybe because it is forbidden only for foreigners in Russia. The photo of the border crossing obviously was a viloation, lucky that he was not arrested.

but anyway it's a pity that we don't need to have even passport to enter Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, France, United Kingdom etc. etc... but the US still requires visas from it's 'ally'... it seems to me that americans are simply too conservative

Štúrovo - Esztergom (Slovakia - Hungary)

Few photos by me from the most beautiful border crossing between Slovakia and Hungary.

Abandoned border buildings on the Slovak side:


Tourist "train" operating between Štúrovo and Esztergom:



Esztergom Basilica in the background:


Quite surprising, Canadian car with Ontario plates in Slovakia:


On the bridge (photos are deformed because they were taken from the moving car):



On the Hungarian side. I guess this may be the place from where the ferry was operated before the Mária Valéria bridge was rebuilt:


Under the bridge in Esztergom:

Just as if there is no passport control between those countries, but I cannot imagine that.

Well, there is, and quite strict. However, this crossing is just a remote one and not opened 24h a day. But because of that, you hardly have to wait and you are through in a few minutes.

I didn't stop there because of that car. I was waiting for some friends there. To kill some time I decided to make little report for SSC using my phone camera. That car I've noticed because it looked very strange. This was actually the first Blinking Sunfire I ever seen. Then I noticed it has also pretty weird plates so I made the photo.

So we have photos of the most beautiful border crossing between Slovakia and Hungary and between Slovakia and Poland. Now I should find out which are the most beautiful border crossings between Slovakia and Austria, Czech Republic and Ukraine...

The czech authorities started to dismantle the border crossing on the motorway between Czech rep. and Slovakia. At the same time, on the Slovak side, the border crossing infrastructure is still on, only the booths were removed.

And what about other former checkpoints in the Eastern EU? Are they still there or is a lot already dismantled?

It is in private hands. The owner now wants to rebuilt it to pension. Some of former checkpoint complexes were sold to the municipalities, and this checkpoint has quite a good location, as it is in touristic highly attractive area and a part of tourist center Tatranská Javorina as well.

But it is not the case of all fomer checkpoint premises in Slovakia. Most of them use now road and highway authorities preferably as maintanance centers. Some of them has been sold to municipalities, and only minor part has been dismantled.
