I believe it's 4 for the 48 contiguous states, one for Hawaii and one for Palinland.

Micronations along the Serbo-Croatian border:



The most famous is:

But there's also:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principality_of_Ongal
This one was moved from the SLO-HR border to the HR-SRB one, as the land of the first location was actually claimed by Slovenia:

During the last week I crossed several borders and concerning the current situation, here are my insights

HR/SRB Bajakovo - Sid about 9 PM on Monday was okay. Only 10 cars were ahead. The whole procedure took less than 30 minutes.
SRB/MK Presevo Kumanovo about 10 AM on Tuesday was okay. No strange preople. It was matter of half an hour.
MK/GR Gevgelija - Evzoni about 1 PM on Tuesday was okay. Again no strange people

Our media has informed that aforementioned borders are full of refugees trying to break into you car or lorry to get to the other side of border. During the day I spotted four (I mean 4) suspicious people I would not have noticed if the media had not freaked about refugees.

I got it!!!!!


As I have said some times before, for a while after Spanish civil war, it was compulsory having a document just to approach the border.

Today I have been in a small museum dedicated to a person who began as a history teacher, ended as politician but it is mainly known because of his songs (about fifteen LP or so)

In the area of his history, his family set as many documents as they could... and I found this one




which allowed him to stay in Canfranc for summer holidays as usual (his family went always there).

So you see useless paranoia from tabloids media. When I passed there at the beginning of june there were more immigrants, mainly in Macedonia and they were by foot or on bycicle. They didnt try to stop cars. Then Macedonia allowed them to use trains or other public transport so probably they dissapear from road. And anyway they were only on main road and not on motorways.

Continuing on the Bosnia theme, here's something that hasn't been seen very often - a border crossing between the RSK and Western Bosnia (which was under the control of a rebel bunch of Muslims allied to the Serbs).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkM7_rB3e_Y

It's quite surreal how "normal" the border looks, although the Serbian customs guard in the film looks like something out of a Village People video

Nowadays, a new big crossing exists next to this small road. Part of this road is on Street View.

LOL, it's very normal, except when they would normally go to stamp your passport they go and stamp your head

Are there any news about it? Googe Maps indicates that the border crossing is open: https://www.google.de/maps/dir/Gruda...176369!1m0!3e0

It's not open as far as I know. It wasn't listed in the 2013 agreement between BiH and Croatia, and there hasn't been any new crossings opened to my knowledge. They're still negotiating over reopening Gabela Polje to international traffic, so...

There's a photo on Google Earth that shows the border to be blocked on the BiH side, and the most recent mapping shows the blockage too.

The problem now with the BiH/HR border is that Schengen doesn't allow the opening of small tourist crossings with non-Schengen states. That means that there needs to be border guards present at every crossing - and the crossings need to comply with Schengen standards too. For that reason, it's pretty much unlikely that many new crossings will open. But I really don't understand why BiH and Croatia didn't agree to open all the local border crossings for BiH+EU traffic - it wouldn't require much extra effort on either part, and some of the local crossings (such as Gabela Polje) aren't too badly equipped.

Gabela Polje is a temporary international crossing until 1st of October 2015 (because of the summer season and the long queues at Doljani crossing).

The French portal is so ugly. Generally speaking, the French have never cared much about this (road&rail) corridor.
