Since December 2007 Slovakia has been the member of Schengen zone. So the permanent controls there were definitely cancelled. The old customs building on SK side of the border were partially removed...

So the border is where the left edge line changes from dashed to solid.

Do they avoid to put border signs for political reasons? (to show that Ireland is a single entity)

There's only a sign that tell that in UK speed limits are in mph and not kph.

I didn't know there was such a memorial, maybe one day I'll go there since my cousin lives in Austria not far away from there.
O.k, go ahead. My idea during last trip there was there I did not want to go via Klingenbach main border crossing (from Sopron) and it is - so far as I know - still not allowed to pass the frontier road to Mörbisch by car. So the local road with this historical important memorial was the best option for route between Sopron and Mörbisch or Rust am Neusiedler See (really pleasant towns).......Yes, Paneuropean Picknic was the beginning of the final downfall of the Iron Curtain....

Probably so. And even if there was a border sign on one day, it probably wouldn't be there on the next one.

If you zoom out from there and go right to the Dublin Rd on the map, then zoom in, you can get a photo of this building. Wonder if this used to be an old border point?

Perhaps that's where the customs were.

Apparently they've started to put these signs up in County, from the Belfast Telegraph



This very interesting website has lots of Irish border customs photos:

Such as:

AT/CZ - road border crossing Gmuend/Ceske Velenice before Schengen (in 2005). The remark "Zollamt" already removed as the Czech Republic had joined EU in 2004:

Yes, since 90s there has been new border bridge on the beltway road so the heavy traffic was diverted out of the center of "twin-city". That issue was very urgent. The street would have been one big parking place. Another issue is that the whole bypass was completed (on Czech side of the border) with significant delay....
And there are two old bridges and before Schengen implementation there was one-way-regime for car (not so for pedestrians) on each bridge. After 2007 the border checkpoints were simply removed.

I have crossed Tesin-Cieszyn border many times nowadays as well as in the communism era. It sometimes took 3-4 hours waiting in very long queue on ČSSR (Czechoslovak Socialist Republic) soil, when returning to PRL (Polish People Republic) after some shopping made by my parents on the other side of Olza river. I think it was the busiest border crossing with Czechoslovakia, back then. Custom officers, both Czechs and Poles, presented quite psychopathic attitude and cared only about the amount of bribe. They could seize all the goods (such as food, toys, socks, stockings, pants or even stupid bras) brought over the limit, unless you paid or had a special permission to carry more than allowed . I even remember "suspected" cars unscrewed to the last bolt.

Once, my 2 year old sister hid her doll under her back and refused to show it to a custom officer, who had become angry and started to shout on her. My father used some costly tricks and eventually "convinced" him to leave her alone. She is now 37 and still keeps that nice doll. Very exceptional, black skin doll.
