Can someone tell me - is the border crossing with A/HR at Nickelsdorf still intact on the Austrian side?

The Hungarian side is quite creepy - the old Customs terminal looks like it was abandoned in 2004 and hasn't been accessed since.

I'll drive tomorrow and on Sunday through this crossing. I'll take a look (if I don't forget).

That's maybe the most I spent at an EU border crossing for many years...
You showed Passport + ID card? What if you had just one of them? For European borders it's enough just one... either Passport or ID. Not both.

When I've crossed it last time (autumn 2013), it looks like making a horror stage As well as most of other Schengen border crossings that have not been taken apart.

It used to be like that on the two motorway crossings between France and Spain. It was only 2 or 3 years ago when they removed those buildings.

The buildings on the two motorway crossings between the two Germanies are still there, but they've turned them into service areas. The watchtowers are also still there.

It can't be the same, since both Austria and Hungary are Schengen members, while Croatia isn't yet.

I remember crossing the HR/SLO borders some years ago(before Bulgaria joined the EU). The border polce officer just aksed me where I am from and let me go on my way, without checking my papers at all.
"-Where are you from?
-Bulgaria.
-OK, you can go."
That was all. It was very strange.

Unfortunately the highway from Bulgaria to Greece is under construction and you are gonna have to waste a lot of time going slow on Bulgarian narrow roads. Once you cross the borders into Greece, road infrastructure is better so you can drive faster (over 100 km/h).

The Kulata border station has no staff on the Bulgarian side. Both Bulgarian and Greek customs officers are located on the Greek side and check your passport for a second or two. Sometimes I am not even sure if they really check it....LOL

A new highway is being constructed and soon will open. Going to Serres, the road isn't great either, by the way.

American embassy in Bratislava. This could be considered as the border crossing too.
Btw. US is the only country that fenced it territory like that. Perhaps we are potential source of terorism:-D

US embassies all around world are like fortresses...maybe because many countries "like" their policy.
