Rastelica - Strezimir, near the Albanian border. It's only open from May through September due to weather.

Quick question : Can someone help me understand the history of two border crossings in Austria?

I'm trying to figure out how the system worked for trucks at the following border crossings -

http://goo.gl/maps/PxQXB - Spielfeld

http://goo.gl/maps/N2dq9 - Drasenhofen

I'm asking specifically about before Slovenia/Czech Republic joined the EU. The road layout in both places is a mystery - does anyone know how a truck would proceed through the border crossings there? Did they clear customs before the passport control, or what?

Why there's the Slovenian flag there (A-I border)?

The Slovenians are as bad as the Dutch.

I did Drasenhofen in 1992 - not sure what exactly you're asking?

Yeah, I noticed that when I drove there. Slovenia is close, but there's no Austrian flag at Rateče/Fusine Laghi, nor Italian at Korensko sedlo/Wurzenpass.

Speaking of it, how close can you get with a car to the Tripoint of A/SLO/I?

You can see a map here (blue = by car, yellow = on foot).

There seems to be a road from the Austrian side as well.

When I was in Kranjska Gora I was thinking of visiting tripoint but I changed my mind since I wasn't sure that I could climb there by my car...

I'm trying to work out how trucks proceeded through the border crossings - normally, most border crossings for trucks have the passport/weight control first, then a large parking area for trucks to clear customs. But in the case of Drasenhofen, there are only large areas on the west side - I'm trying to work out how trucks would drive through there.

You can see on the aerial maps that I linked to that there's no "obvious" route through the border station unlike at most border crossings. That's why I'm wondering if it was remodelled/etc at some point.

For what it's worth, what's the story with Mikoluv? That station seemed far, far too small to cope with being an external border of the EU. It doesn't seem to have much in the way of truck parking - does anyone know?

It's not a border crossing, but it's a border sign between Macedonia and Albania. The thing is that on the stone is written SFRJ in Cyrillic (SFRJ means Socialistic Federal Republic of Yugoslavia). 22 years after the disintegration of Yugoslavia, this border stone hasn't been changed.

The border of Italy is signed with stone where there is wrote "Kingdom of Italy" (!) and in the mountain near where I live there is still also border stone with the old border with Austria-Hungary!! (and some Venetian Republic!!)
