This one is interesting. It's a former railway station on a Croatian railway (Savski Marof-Kumrovec), named after a Croatian village Vukovo Selo, on the Croatian side of river Sotla/Sutla ... but in Slovenia (and with no bridge over Sotla to the rest of Slovenia). The railway was built in times of Yugoslavia and is now closed, but it was open until 2000. I assume trains were stopping there, but there was no border control.

location (the border isn't precise; the station lies entirely within Slovenia)

In Spain it is!!!.
Once I knew a German citizen who had a German driving licence. He had been living in Spain for 10 years and always used his German licence.

He said he was used to hear comments from police about the licence because his address was in Spain. He always said the same answer: in which law it says I am not allowed to drive?.
And once he said to an officer that no problem if he got fined because that reason. He would complain saying that all was in rule and saying that they should give more training to that officer numer (in the fine you have the officer number) because he didn't knew any law at all.


I asked why he didn't change the licence because it is free. He replied me that... he didn't want!!!
Providing he changed it, he would have to pass a medical test every 10 years and it is not free at all. Nothing to do with a German licence
