Bogdymol - thanks! I know the Austria finally dismantled some of them, but I'm not sure if Nickelsdorf was included.

As for the Hungarians, apparently there's no problem with them keeping the infrastructure. Unlike France/Spain, they aren't really using the buildings to control traffic in any way - and it seems to be a deliberate policy of Fidesz to reassure nationalistic voters that they still have the possibility of reintroducing controls.

Everyone's a critic until they need us...and then it's suddenly "no, don't go!" Which is how western Europe has gotten away with doing next to squat to defend itself for 70 years, and had the luxury of sitting on the sidelines heckling. WHICH is why if it was up to me...well, we've had the NATO conversation already. (And we're supposed to put our military and lives, including civilian lives, on the line to support the expansion of the European Union, which is as much a rival of ours as it is an ally, and to do so without question? Please.)

Seriously, shit happens. Our embassies and consulates have been attacked before. Nairobi, Benghazi.... But if not liking our policies is justification for that....


PS: I'm guessing we're not the only one who have to do that. Israel for example. And given incidents like what happened today (Saturday) in Brussels.

Don't take it that seriously. I just personally think, countries in NATO should not be considered as potential threat. It completely refuses the nature of NATO. How can it work if one country does not believe in others? As you properly said, sht happens, but even inside US.

And comparing NATO countries with Ethiopia or Libya, you were just kidding ain't you?

When I crossed into BiH from Croatian A10 it was so relaxed that the Bosnian didn't stamp my passport. And I totally forgot to ask

Yesterday I crossed back into HR at Cepikuce. Check is done together on Croatian side. You drive some 1-2 km in Croatia until the check though. This crossing was one of the most relaxed ones I have ever been to.

I asked there for a stamp this time, I got one, it's Croatian with EU stars:

It is okay, the contract expires at the end of 2014 and representatives of US embassy agreed to move to the periphery.

For more accurate answer you should ask terrorists why.

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

Direction Austria -> Hungary:


You can see that the autobahn goes straight ahead now, but the former customs terminal is still there, on the right side (although unused):



Between the 2 countries:



Hungarian terminal is still there and the asphalt sucks:



Direction Hungary -> Austria:

Hungarian terminal:





Austrian one you can still see on the right edge of the picture:

The old crossing Zaton Doli is also still visible (about a kilometer east of the current crossing), but does mot exist anymore.

That's in the middle of nowhere... I guess you have been the only car for the whole day I just find it by accident on Google Maps and remembered reading that name a few hours back. Is that border crossing an international one? That's surprising.

That layout is usual?

I mean, I guess that the third lane is because of a slope, but it is usual to remove the shoulder in that case instead of enlarging the carriageway?

Anyway, is it the S69? Which is the standard width for shoulders in expressways (not in motorways)?
