i'll give you a recipe: just remember their english names. Lithuania doesn't have "v", Latvia does. so one with "v" can bi only LV, and that's Latvia that's how i have learnt it

The Soviet-Polish border was much longer than that. There are four ex-Soviet republics bordering Poland, and if you ask me, Lithuania was the least important (and very short border). My old map of Europe (from 1992) shows the road there with the thinest line possible. The same with the road between Slovenia and Hungary.

I suppose the most important was with Belarussian SSR, Brest.

American: "Hi, where are you from?"
Dutchman: "Amsterdam"

Austria and Latvia:



1. Latvia has stolen our flag.
2. It lies in the Baltics (Our Flag!)
3. Apart from that, they are using our flag. ("The stripe is too thin!)
4. The people in Latvia are called "Latvians". (Our flag!)
5. Latvia is using our flag. (The red is too dark, too!)
6. And they've also stolen our flag! ("Put that away!")

No offense.

The Netherlands, Slovenia, Serbia, Slovakia, Luxembourg, Russia all have horizontal stripes in red, white and blue. Just different orders and some of these also have a national emblem in the flag
