I don't know about parties, but I know that long-distance intl trains running through Liechtenstein don't even stop in it.

Border crossing is a place where you can cross the border, and in Shengen you can do that everywhere. Now it is not more than few useless booths

To be correct, there are now hundreds of road border crossings. If you wanna include pedestrian border crossings, their number is more of a philosophical question, as you can cross the border almost anywhere.

I wonder how big (small) this border crossing and the roads leading there was right after the fall of the communism and Lithuania gaining independence, when it suddenly became important.

It's also the other way around: the border towns of Schengen borders lose their importance now.

Yeah, everybody knows Waidhaus/Rozvadov. While they've forgotten about De Lutte or Bocholtz.

I don't know what you're trying to say. I'm just wondering, if the border crossing Budzisko/Kalvarija between Poland and Lithuania was small and if roads on both sides of it were bad, considering it wasn't important before 1990, but then it suddenly became important as the Baltic gateway to central and western Europe. It's a short border, so it's the only important PL-LT road border crossing.
