That wasn't very much to dismantle, but at least it happened

The border crossings at the Polish-German border are still there, this seems to be the first that got dismantled. For the old EU: they removed all obstacles on the roads, but the buildings along the motorway are still there (abandoned though)

You're missing my point. Most Americans would rather live under a rock and would find the task of pinpointing any given country on a map daunting-- any country at all, not just those that have sprung up in the last thirty years. And if you think they wouldn't find it an effort to get themselves up to speed, then you are giving the American educational system far more credit than I believe it deserves.

Those people are the least likely to be posting here to begin with, because they (like our outgoing president) are not curious about the world in which they live. Once they acquire that curiosity, they will find this place waiting.

Incidentally, I didn't say I hadn't actually done at least some of the research. Just that for me, it was a bit of work-- but considerably less than it would have been 15 years ago before the advent of the interweb. And I don't live under a rock.

Mostly what I am learning from this thread is that 95% of the world's border crossings occur in Poland.

For some reason Polish forumers are very active on SSC forum. To whichever thread I go there is always someone from Poland posting something. It is a bit suprising considering that internet penetration is still quite lower in Poland than in western Europe. Why I don't see so many forumers from Italy or Spain?
Other active nation is definatelly Netherland. Especially in all infrastructure threads. Probably 'cose they all traders and merchants

Motorway border crossing on Brenner pass between Italy and Austria


On the italian side they are building a shopping mall, so it will be a very interesting location for tourists to stop
On the austrian side, you can notice that kind of bridge other the motorway. It was built once they dismantled completely the old border crossing.

Border Crossing between Austria and Germany on Inntal motorway


Here there is nothing that can remember you that once there was a border crossing. Nowadays on both sides of the motorway there are only petrol stations.

This is the Bulgarian city Ruse seen from the Romanian city Giurgiu, on the other bank of the Danube:

There is still border control, because both countries have not implemented yet the Schengen agreement. However border check is performed only on the side of the country you are entering either by Romanian or Bulgarian police. Often there are Romanian policemen on the Bulgarian side and Bulgarian policemen on the Romanian side.
There are no customs controls both states being members of the EU.

The Romanian side:

Strange that "Bulgaria" is only in English on the bridge. One should expcet at least a bilangual sign, or otherwise only Bulgarian.

I don't approve this neither, but what do you expect from people annihilating their own language?

God damn it, all I read about in this thread is how another Eastern-European border crossing got recently dismantled while the border between the USA and Canada is getting more and more strict. It's very sad After 18 January, the US border regulations will require all permanent residents to submit their biometrics data upon entering the country. This means that I will have to get out of the car and come inside the station when I return from Canada I kind of imagined that the future will be less strict in all aspects, not more strict.

There are still pretty strict borders in Europe as well. Outer Schengen border is probably much more protected than US/CAN border. It's rather similar to US/MEX border I would say, only without walls, of course.

Well, most outer borders of the Schengen area are considered to be with the more, er how do I describe it without offending people, criminal/dangerous etc countries, while Canada is not quite such a country in my opinion.
