I found a page with interesting borders in the world:

The big island is in Canada, the smaller in the USA


Right Spain (Ceuta), left Morocco


Baarle Hertog - Baarle Nassau (If we really need to tell where is it, since this pic is everywhere on the net)


Road between Sweden and Norway


Lighthouse between Sweden and Denmark (?) (I think they mean Sweden-Norway or Sweden Finland)


China (Tibet) - Nepal




Disputed border between Egypt and Sudan. For some reasons this quadrilater of desert isn't claimed by any of those countries (having it means losing a wider area).


"Capanna Regina Margherita" over the Monte Rosa between Italy and Switzerland. Altitude: 4559m.


China-Kyrgyzstan


Western Sahara - Mauritania


Underground border in the salt ore near Salzburg


India - Bangladesh


Diomede islands in the Bering strait: the Eastern one is American, the Western one is Russian


Norway - Sweden - Finland tripoint

That's come up before, and apparently they're both in Canada: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zavikon_Island

I wrote some post before about it. It is called the shortest international bridge when... both islands are in Canada and posted a link about it.

I found a page with three very short international bridges in a blog. Blogger wrote that a PT-ES bridge was 3m20 long. There are two ones more as applicant to the shortest international bridge. Another one PT-ES and another CZ-PL which seems to be similar.

By the way... Tibet-China is not international bridge at all, even if photos are really nice.

Does not look a road but trees removed from the border line, and the area used by snowmobiles.

Not at a border at all. Sprog° lighthouse in Denmark at the StorebŠlt bridge: https://maps.google.fi/?ll=55.333368...12,236.56,,0,0

Both islands are actually in Canada, the border is to the right.

Besides that, I believe is the USA-Canada border, not the Sweden-Norway one.

Ah, the Bir Tawil, where <insert things that are a crime anywhere here> is allowed. Maybe we should claim it for Skyscrapercity.

It's a bridge between Tibet and Nepal, not between Tibet and the rest of China.

That library is binational. I read that once US police made some questions to a prisoner who was in Canada and asked not to cross the border

Why? Well I don't really recognise those particular trees, but I can tell that such trees can be found at the Sweden-Norway border. Not to say they couldn't be found in the USA-Canada border as well, of course.

I think you're right.

However I don't think you are allowed to wander freely there, maybe that snowmobile belongs to border patrol cops.

This one could be (one of) the shortest international bridge(s) in the world.

English translation:

1- Welcome to the Republic of Chile

2- Welcome. St. Sebastien Border complex

3- Argentinan Republic. Tierra del Fuego (Fireland), Antartic and Southern Atlantic islands province.
