Anyway, thank you so much for the pics! Opening new border crossings to ease people's lives is always refreshing.
They decided the whole thing 10 days ago (Serbian PM boasted about that at the opening ceremony how he is so proud of that) at a meeting where Romanian PM probably told his Serbian colleague "listen I've got this election coming up and I am not doing so well in the Timis County so can we please do this thing"

Kalvarija [LT] LV stands for Latvia.

Those light poles on the Lithuanian side date back to USSR times from the looks of it.

Why is the border infrastructure kept if it's not maintained nor another use was found? To have these decaying structures and quite often some slow-down of traffic makes no sense.

I don't like unnecessary slowing-down of traffic, but I actually like some border infrastructure. For example, going from the Slovenian A5 to the Hungarian M70 is smooth (110 km/h), but there's also a rest area on the Slovenian side.

How was this border crossing in the times of Ceaucescu in Romania and Tito in Yugoslavia?

It worked normally until 2004 when it was closed and opened few times a year.


These signs are obviously from the 1970s (photo taken in 2010)

It closed after Romania overzealously introduced visas for Serbian citizens and Serbia reciprocated so there were no people crossing the border. The fact that visas were abolished about 5 years ago shows how long it can take for bureaucracy to notice and fix these things.

Frontier? Should not it be State border?

AFAIK border is something visible, boundary is something invisible (except on map) and frontier is "buffer area" along border/boundary (frontier districts = districts that share any section of boundary with state border). But I might be mistaken.

Have to think about that one....

I'm not sure the differences between those words are all that precise in practice. That said, "state" seems odd to me and I don't see the need for the "the." If that sign's supposed to be marking the actual line, "national border" or "Serbian border" or whatever would seem natural; if they're warning you that customs is coming up, say "border crossing" or "customs"....

French influence is really felt in ex-Yugoslavia (especially those Carina/Douane signs). Perhaps it was Frenglish

In Serbian it indeed says "border crossing". The Russian version also says the same and German version I think just "border".

The same in the French text regarding the "La" before Frontičre (just like for example we write "Douane" and not "La Douane" on such signs in French)

Well that's a sign from the 1970s, probably long removed by now

It says just douane these days

They kept French and threw away their own language on the sign? LMAO!

I agree, but at the same time, for me it seems weird to just see Grenze instead of Staatsgrenze, I don't know why...
