Why the British and Finnish flags on the informative panel?

Medyka.


PRL - CSSR

Cieszyn. I was looking for my parents' car but it was not there this time


Cieszyn again. You can see duty free shop "Baltona".


All pictures come from a non existening weekly paper "Granice" (borders) and their place in the internet can be found here.

Waow, this is a Skoda S 100 on the second picture, my father had one of those. His car was from ´73.The funny thing is that you could only buy it in a kind of mustard yellow or dark red (in Hungary) at that time. My fathers was red.

They are getting pretty expensive now, particularly those suffixed with "R". My parents owned Simca 1301 in seventies, which was really nice and advanced car back then. However, there was not easy to service Simcas in Poland because of lack of spare parts even on black market. Parts were available in neighbouring CzechoSlovakia, where the cars were imported and those, who had had connections, such as my father had, could travel to CSRS and buy them. Once, when our beloved but not too reliable Simca went to a mechanic, we borrowed a Skoda 100 from my father's friend just to visit Ostrava and purchase some parts. I remember it had a pretty spacious compartment behind rear seats, so one could carry some goods in it. Interestingly a Czechoslovakian custom officer searched it as a first thing on our way back from Ostrava

This picture captured on Polish-German border in Gorlitz/Zgorzelec seems to be pretty interesting. There is attached "D" country code sticker to that Trabant, even though it comes from East Berlin (I letter).

I wonder what barriers existed at that time since this is basically one city split in two by a river. Could people go close to the river?

Isn't it possible that this picture was shot after November '89 but before the ex-GDR license plates were replaced by all-German ones? (I know that Germany was only unified in Oct '90 but after the opening of the wall such symbols were no more strictly punished in the GDR).

Have you ever heard about this one:

Quote:
In order to visit mount Athos the first step is to get a visitors permit or "Diamonitirio. This is not an easy task. They typically grant four-day passes. You can order a visa at the Pilgrim's Bureau office. The Mount Athos Office is open: from Monday to Saturday from 9:00a.m. to 01:00p.m. The address is: 109 Str. Av. Egnatias – 54622 Thessalonica Greece. Tel.:0030-2310-252578 and fax: 0030-2310-222424. You also need to email ([email protected]) a copy of your passport along with the VISA request form. Once your date of entry has been confirmed, you must reconfirm your plans, still with the Mount Athos Pilgrims' Bureau, two weeks before your planned visit. This can be done by email.
Quote:
The number of daily visitors to Mount Athos is restricted, and all are required to obtain a special entrance permit valid for a limited period. Only males are permitted to visit the territory, which is called "Garden of the Virgin" by the monks,[4] with Orthodox Christians taking precedence in permit issuance procedures. Residents on the island must be males over aged 18 and over who are members of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and must be either monks or workers.

Vatican crossing IS international, so it's nothing like Mount Athos.

The picture is taken before 1974. First the flags on the bridge, this is clearly commie time, and the country sign "DDR" was introduced on Jan 1st 1974. DDR cars used to carry a D too before 1974.
