Actually, it's Duboševica/Udvar. I have pre-EU Croatian passport stamp from this crossing.

It was quite comfy beach, the water was less clean but much warmer than the rest of the Polish Baltic coast.

Lots of Germans on the Polish beach anyway . I guess lots of apartments have German owners as well.

To get on the Island from the Polish side you need to use a ferry. The city ferry is working also in the night, every 20 minutes, and it's free of charge. On the German side of the island there are bridges.

Don`t think so, maybe 1-3%, most are to rent owned by poles.

Have searched in street view that border and, besides the beach, there is a nice footlane and bike lane with continuity (and no fences, booths...) over the border. There is a monument that point you are changing country

If it's here, then there was never any border crossing here. The nearest (pedestrian only) crossing was located here - https://www.google.pl/maps/@53.92205...!6m1!1e1?hl=en

The remains of the barbed wire fence is here - https://www.google.pl/maps/@53.92694...!6m1!1e1?hl=en

And also here - https://www.google.pl/maps/@53.92686...!6m1!1e1?hl=en

Interestingly, I've found references to suggest that Germany was controlling the border on Usedom with infrared cameras and motion detection equipment in 2007, well after Poland joined the EU!

Nothing special, just a Schengen border crossing between Portugal and Spain I checked out a week ago: Marvão (PT) / Valencia de Alcántara (E)

I passed there in June

The landscape is much flatter east of Valencia de Alcántara. N-521 to Cáceres is a long trip, but there's almost no traffic. A-58 was once planned there, but seems unlikely to be constructed.

What is your problem here? Poland joined the Schengen area in December 2007. Before that, the D/PL border was the outer perimeter of the Schengen area, and to be guarded by the book.

It's just surprising that the barbed wire fence and other defences weren't taken down in 2004, that's all. The CZ/D border in comparison was far less defended, but Usedom seemed to warrant special attention for some reason.

A strange fact is that there was only one crossing on Usedom until 2007, and that crossing was for pedestrian and bike traffic only. The Garz crossing only opened in June 2007, which makes you wonder what the sense was in spending so much money on it.

Also there was a paramilitary attack to Venezuelan forces in Táchira estate so the president decided to close the border and decree an emergency in the border towns, nobody knows when it's going to be re-opened, but Tachira's people wants it closed until february, so imagine the magnitude of the problem.

PD: Now in Colombia they make endless lines to fill the tanks of the cars, because when the border was opened Colombian cars filled the tanks in Venezuelan gas stations (the cheapest fuel in the world).

Or is Italy (mafia) capitalist? If so, then I can accept what you said.
