What about countries with internal flights? For example, if you fly from Zagreb to Split, do you have to show your documents?

It depends on the carrier. Strictly speaking, ID isn't required for intra-Schengen flights - I flew from Berlin to Malaga last week without anyone even looking at my Polish permanent resident's ID card (that I use instead of a passport, it looks pretty much like a normal personal identity card). But many airlines want to see ID to prove that the booked person is travelling, so - hard to say. Probably the best answer is that while there are no border checks, there can be identity checks independent of border control depending on the situation.

Just an update on Spain-Gibraltar. The Spanish side of the border (in the direction of Spain) is seeing some building work, although no-one seems to know exactly what is going on. Gibraltar now has three channels available on entry (two green, one red channel), and random passport controls are conducted. Spain is conducting random passport controls on entry and exit. On foot, Gibraltar is stopping people at random (with all non-EU national subjected to immigration controls). The Spanish are also conducting random entry and exit checks. None of the controls seem to be disproportionate, and the frontier is smooth on entry and exit. There are delays on entry to Gibraltar, but this seems to be a combination of only one lane open when exiting Spain combined with Gibraltar entry controls. Either way, it's not terrible right now. Curiously, the EU appears to have told Spain to drop exit controls. Quite where that fits in with the requirement of Schengen to have both entry and exit controls, I'm not sure...

Gibraltar is not a part of Schengen.

The border crossing buildings in Cieszyn Boguszowice (PL/CZ - E75 corridor) are demolished.
The Castorama store is planned at this place :

It's quite funny to speak about domestic flights in the border crossings' thread ;-)
I flew several times inside Germany and was never requested to show any ID.

Castorama? A place to buy beavers? ("castor" is French for "beaver.")

Lol, actually the original name of this DIY retailer chain was "Central Castor" (central beaver), the beaver being indeed the emblem of this chain since this animal, as you already know I presume, is well known for being pretty good at DIY, home renovation and construction stuff .

I knew I'd heard Detroit somewhere, it must have been for trucks. And I guess they're counting both road crossings there as a single "port of entry."

I happened to be in Canada at the time of that ridiculous, brief U.S. Federal government shutdown in October 2013...CBC newscasts had reporters and cameras in Windsor talking about border traffic, although if memory serves, they kept normal staffing levels. (I was briefly worried I might be stuck in Canada. I mean, it's lovely, but it was October and it could start snowing any minute... My brother actually was in Montreal on 9/11 and couldn't get home for a few days because the borders really were closed.
