Duty free shops also exist on the Greek land borders.

A new record number of 2'093 border violators within a 24-hour period were held up by Hungarian police at the SRB - H border on Monday, Aug. 25th, many entering Hungary on the railway tracks of the line Szabadka/Subotica -> Szeged where the "fast-installation wire barrier" isn't in place. At other locations, they have also forced their way through the wire barrier by damaging it.
This tide is a fraction of the thousands of illegals that were temporarily held up at the GR - MK border before they forced their way into Macedonia. They arrive continuously, including at night time.
Most are from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria and Nigeria (thus we have a large share of economic migrants instead of refugees - in 4 of these countries there is no ongoing war. Western Europeans, the majority of them is heading for your countries).
Given the numbers of migrants wandering around, police had to temporarily stop traffic on a part of Main Road 5 near Szeged.
Human trafficking is a serious business for criminals; migrants are charged hundreds of euros for car rides to Budapest and beyond. Local gypsies (already well represented in the human trafficking business) are also targeting cash-carrying migrants for stealing and robbing them.

Article and lot of photos:

The Norwegian explanation: "Mo" is the name of the town, "i" means in, "Rana" is the name of the municipality. "Mo" is a fairly common name in Norway, so someone chose to include the municipality. No local person ever would, though, to them it's just "Mo".

Can Els Limits be considered as "duty free shop" in the border?

Looking towards norht there is a point where left sidewalk, parking lane, two road lanes and parking lane are in France... and for 500m right sidewalk is still in Spain. It is curious... because you have French banks, Post office, etc.. in one side, Spanish supermarkets in the other side.

So then, you crosses booths (no controls but they remain), drive 500m and you enter into France. You park in your side (right side looking towards north), you pay parkingmeter (they are only in French sides of the road). Should you get off by the right side of the car you are crossing an international border (back to Spain). You have many supermarkets there... buy what you want. You will have to pay Spanish taxes (not duty free), but should you go back to the car and keep them into the boot... you have crossed another border again... and way into France.

These supermarkets, as said, aren't full duty free ones but they sell those goods where there is more tax difference between Spain and France.

It's actually the same in all Slavic languages, so apparently it's Slavic influence on Romanian. "(Mo) i rana" actually means "(Mo) and wound" in Serbo-Croatian, but it still sounds Albanian to me. They also have border crossings called "Han i Hotit" and "Han i Elezit", maybe because of that.

Why should there be a new thread? Totally unnecessary.

I like that me mentioning a name of a town with about 18 500 inhabitants in northern Norway has spun out in in frogs and wounds

Why do we need a 2nd "Road side rest area" = "talk about anything" thread?

Of course they are. No single word about history of Balkan.

I've always wondered - how controlled was the Italy-Austria border before Austria joined the EU?

Were these borders as soft as France/Belgium, or were they guarded?
