I just know. It's always my fault. And soon BL2 will come and give me a hard time again, and it will always be my fault.

It depends, because for instance, I can exchange from Zloty into Euro and lose a really minimal amount of cash. The exchange offices in Poland offer ridiculously good deals - and you can usually change from EUR into local currency in the Balkans without losing much. Using a credit/debit card on the other hand can be problematic - my bank (ING) will convert BAM to EUR and then into PLN - so you have massive losses there. As for using Euro in the Balkans, I've found that accommodation providers have no issue with taking EUR over local currencies, usually at a rate very close to the interbank rate. Speaking of which - has anyone noticed how currency exchange offices seem to be invisible on Balkan borders?

I'm looking at the map of that area. Somebody was obviously very drunk when that frontier was designed...

In the case of the SLO-HR border, it looks like that Mura river changed its route while the border remained the same.

The problem with the Yugoslav republic borders were that they really were poorly made in some cases. They weren't of any particular importance, so I don't think anyone bothered to sit down and say "well, this line is an absurdity" because it didn't really matter at all. Of course, the sensible thing now would be to conduct some land swaps and get it straightened out, but relations in this area between Slovenia and Croatia seem to be pretty cool. I guess with Croatia's entry to the EU, it ceases to be of any real significance.

In the India-Bangladesh case, once I watcthed a picture where there were a double enclave (a little square over another country but inside that square, another one of the own country but needed to cross over).

Absolutely crazy... but they were just countrylands

Something like that. Little Belgian enclaves within Dutch territory.

That's right.

What do you mean "poorly made"? Most of the SLO-HR border is centuries-old.

PS: no one seems to care about this border either.

It looks like a factory backyard, where probably only workers can enter. Maybe they have some autorization to cross the border there. Could that Slovenian company have been built deliberately on Croatian soil for some fiscal advantage?
