Hi all

New to SSC and been trawling through the 668 pages of this thread!

At Bayerisch Eisenstein there was a large fence running down where the borderline is now. There are some pictures larger than the one below but they won't link.

(Can't post the actual picture within the post due to the 10 count limit!)

Another question.... how many European countries (apart of Russia) do they have different time zones?

Russia doesnt follow anymore the summer time, so now the difference is just 1 hour from the CET.
Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Finland, Baltic States,Moldova, UK, Ireland, Iceland Portugal are in different timezone than the CET.

Considering only Europe (and "not far islands"), UK mainland has GMT in winter and Gibraltar GMT+1

So UK is in the list...

Somport tunnel is cut off to bus and truck since today 8:00 due to an electrical issue.
Cars can cross the tunnel.

No, +2h in summer and +3h in winter (Moskow timezone), only Kaliningrad has +1h (s) and +2h (w).
(Belarus - +1h in summer and +2 in winter from CET)

Gibraltar is not a part of the UK.

So Gibraltar is now Spanish?

And yup, Spain has two time zones: Mainland and Balearic islands, which use UTC+1, and the Canary Islands, which use UTC (I say they use any time zone but UTC, as a parody of the radios saying 'It's that hour, one hour less in the Canaries').
