You can open a thread dedicated to people's opinions on Schengen and stuff and leave this one to people like me who just don't care and want to see border crossings.

There is/was a thread about Schengen, I think it was closed.
But you are right, this thread should be cleaned up.

And everything started from this... and then Road_UK came...

What's that supposed to mean? It's nice to have a discussion again. It's attracting new people. This part of ssc is dying out otherwise...

Ok, bye. See you around somewhere else. They've closed the other EU thread unfortunately...

on the other hand, i would make it nearly impossible for imigrants from any third-world country to settle in europe.
The BG-TR is not the problem. It's a very well guarded border and you can't even get close to it without getting intercepted. The issue is political.

Edit: Last night 32 people we caught illegally trying to cross from Turkey.

Just an observation :

Hungary's border crossings with Romania look to be all but abandoned - this one near Gyula is a perfect example - http://goo.gl/maps/1mazq

You can look around the Hungarian border crossing, and it seems that not very much is happening there at all. The dress of the guard in jeans says it all - that no-one is taking the border crossings seriously at all. The whole area looks to be somewhat abandoned - empty (not even equipped at all) booths on exit from Hungary, unmaintained greenery (it was the same at the crossing near Cenad from what I remember) and so on.

This one is particularly curious - http://goo.gl/maps/Ost3v - does anyone know the story here?

It's a relaxed atmosphere as it should be. Long gone are the days of soldiers with Kalashnikofs guarding those crossings.

Controls (border police and customs)are carried out jointly by mixed transnational teams together on one/either side of the border to speed up the flows and solidify co-operation practices. They do take it seriously and stamp the passports of non EU passport holders and customs personnel is on hand. Schengen has been pending for years so physical upkeep is not invested in.

Furthermore all efforts in transnational cooperation have been for years towards post-schengen common policing, checks and regionalization. Romania has purchased lots of EADS technology and set up the schengen standard at its entry points, passing inspections.

While passenger crossing points are crowded but fluid or slow, depending on size and season, goods transports can spend days crossing the border.

There's more and more commercial traffic on that border, and for citizens from St Petersburg it's very easy to obtain a Schengen visa from the Finnish consulate. But with visa requirements still exceptionally high between the EU and Russia, I can't see becoming it one of the busiest border crossings in the world anytime soon...

This one in Shenzhen is probably the largest in terms of processing capacity.

Actually it isn't an international border crossing because Hong Kong isn't recognized as indipendent country even if de facto it is.
