Closed for strangers, to 1990
Regular control of the border guard.
On the border Poland -Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, crossing was controlled closely, to 1990.
Was several border crossings only.


Special document of trip from 1976, only for the eastern block:

Not really an international border, but an intercontinental border within a transcontinental country:


Near Yekaterinburg, Russia

I do identify myself as a scandinavian eurasian more than a european.

very interesting.

I found in google maps somewhere in Equador where they have a monument to the 0║ paralel.

There is a 200m or so mistake indeed, but when it was built there were not enought tools to determinate the exact point of that paralel.

Can anyone find this monument in this American country?

Here we go again. Sweden, part of the EU, Germanic language, connecting by a bridge with Denmark , a breath of people that Hitler would have been proud of, part of Schengen and traffic between continent and Sweden has never been so high and there is NordikNerd considering himself Eurasien instead of European.

My wife is Russian, she never came out with this bullcrap before...

I can walk in a straight line from Amsterdam to China. What does this make me? I think I'll have some fried rice and spring rolls for dinner tonight...

Scandinavia IS part of continental Europe because IT'S in Europe an IT ISN'T an island. Also Italy and Spain\Portugal are peninsulas but still are part of continental Europe.
Sweden is geographically, culturally and politically European.
In every European countries there are many people that don't identify themselves as Europeans but this doesn't made those countries extra-Europeans.

You can walk from Portugal to Germany to Vietnam without crossing a sea. Does it mean that Germany is in Eurasia? Don't think so. You can even get from Portugal to Vietnam without crossing a sea

Off course Germany is in Eurasia, all European and Asian countries are part of Eurasia!

Yes, but what NordikNerd was trying to say was that if a country is in Eurasia, than it's not in Europe

This is wrong b\c if a country is in Europe or in Asia it's automatically also in Eurasia and if a country is in Eurasia, it must be either in Europe, Asia or split between the two. Since Sweden is not in Asia (not even part of it) it must be only in Europe!

Heck, I would go via Kyrgyzstan if I was to walk from Portugal to Vietnam .

But it's time to get back on topic, I believe.

Yesterday I have visited the tripoint of Serbia, Romania and Hungary (it's allowed to cross it in the last weekend of May). I was also allowed to cross the temporary border crossing by a car:

One day, all these three countries will have entered the Schengen Area as EU states.

Since the borders in communist times have been mentioned: Are there any pictures of those times of Eastern European borders, especially with the Soviet-Union? I found 1 picture of the NO-SU border in Storskog, but sure there must be more of them.

I wonder, if we had any signs for Hungary, and where they appeared first. I know there weren't any in Maribor, I wonder if they were in Pesnica (north of Maribor).
