0:51 A Serbian car with KM (Kosovska Mitrovica)plates. I thought they were forbidden in Kosovo?

More on-topic: Good to see that it is possible to have joint border crossing facilities, which would be impossible some years ago.

As expected, the topic was discussed on the prime ministers' meeting:

Makaza checkpoint on Bulgarian-Greek border to be opened in March 2013
17 December 2012 | 15:33 | FOCUS News Agency
Home / Southeast Europe and Balkans
Athens. Makaza checkpoint on the Bulgarian-Greek border will be opened in March 2013, Bulgarian and Greek prime ministers Boyko Borisov and Antonis Samaras agreed at the second joint meeting of their government in Athens, FOCUS News Agency’s Denka Katsarska reports.
“The site will finish in March 2013, i.e. three months later. A new and modern checkpoint will be opened and it will ease the communication between the two countries, as well as tourism. I can assure you that the issue will be over by the end of March,” said Antonis Samaras.

Fresh update in Google Earth from November 11th from the region of Bulgarian-Turkish border near Kapitan Andreevo. It shows enormous queues of trucks on both sides, especially on Turkish side. Which shows why they plan the reconstruction of the border-crossing with 36 gates each side.

Borders Netherlands-Germany

The Nieuwstraat-Neustrasse (location) is partly Dutch (Kerkrade), partly German (Herzogenrath). 2 pictures whilst driving on the Dutch side, oncoming traffic is in the German side.





Until the 90's, a low wall seperated both cities. On the roundabout an old piece still can be found (and marks the border)



Tripoint Netherlands-Belgium-Germany

Seen from German side:


Seen from Belgian(right)-Dutch(left) border, the trees are in Germany


Seen from Belgian(left, front)-German(right) border. The border is marked here by thin green lines. The remaining small piece is Dutch



Vaals-Aachen (NL-DE)
Standing on the border: The cars left are in Germany, the building right is Dutch


Entering Germany by car


Here starts Bundesstrasse 1


Aachen: So close to the border there are signs for the neighbouring countries.

Parking lot: To City Centre or to the Netherlands


Ovals and cities in the neighbouring countries in Aachen

Free parking on the German side and paid parking on the Dutch side

Border related: The bus stop is in the Netherlands (some kilometers from the border), the sign is German, and line 396 is a Belgian line

OK. Some stuff for New Year's Eve

Where is the shorter international bridge?

If you go to the surroundings of Lake Ontario they will say this one is the international shorter bridge around the world:




And they painted both US and Canadian flags on it



But... IT IS NOT an international bridge.

Despite any advertisment for tourism, both islands are in Canada!!!

They are Zavikon Islands and you can check here that both are inside Canada
https://maps.google.es/maps?q=Zaviko...on+Island&z=16

(and checked with an official US map about that corner is not part of the US)

So... where could be find the shorter international bridge around the world, indeed?

That could be a nice proposal for Jan and the one-on-one prize, isn't it?


Reading a blog, there are mainly two applicants.


Number 1. O Marco (PT) - Marco (ES)



Left Portugal, Right Spain.

No google street view. This are panoramio pictures
https://maps.google.es/maps?q=marco,...oid=po-9215864



Number 2. CZ - PL very near to the trifinium with Germany




And this is location on Google street view


Number 3: Rionor (P) - Rihonor de Castilla (E)



Picture taken from Portugal through Spain.


No street view... just Panoramio

https://maps.google.es/maps?q=Rihono...id=po-17633093


Photos are taken from this blog. Despite it is written in Spanish, be sure that with any translator you will read it easily.
Feel free to write that blogger. He speaks English an French.
http://fronterasblog.wordpress.com/2...rto-del-mundo/


He said he doesn't know exactly the distance of every bridge except for number one where it is exactly 3,20m.

Bridges? I know 2. One is really short and both are located here.

(PL)(CZ)
This one is very short, maybe 3 meters.



(PL)(SK)
The other one is much longer but still interesting.

I'm wondering what's with the Dutch flag halfway across the bridge!

(But that's not Lake Ontario - it's in the Saint Lawrence River.)

That's a Hungarian flag (or at least one with the same colors).

Bottom looks blue to me, but it doesn't matter.

You're right... and blogger where I took the pictures is right too.

I had to say just "near Lake Ontario"

If you come too early there is need to wait and check departure time on blue matrix seen in the background.

Passport control. This is very serious border crossing. In no way similar to schengen crossings in mainland Europe.
