Doesn't matter. Those countries were inherently unstable and it was just a matter of time.

Europe will be all right, a bit different than before but still a fine place to live. Remember the only constant in life is change.

About 2 weeks ago I crossed the Croatian / Bosnian and Bosnian / Croatia border nearby Neum, on the way to/from Dubrovnik.

On my way south, entering Bosnia, I got only a 2-second look at my Romanian ID card by the Croatian border officer:







Entering Croatia (to Dubrovnik) from Bosnia, it was the same story:



On the way back, entering Bosnia from Croatia (heading north), I haven't even stopped the car, but passed trough with 5 km/h as the border police just waved me through:



Entering back in Croatia (heading north), the 2 vans in front of me didn't stop. I was stopped for the 2-second look on my ID card:

Some hundreds of protestors blocked the border between Finland and Sweden in Tornio/Haparanda yesterday in a demonstration on the recent immigration crisis. This demonstration affected a local street, not E4.

In this picture the line of people somewhat follows the actual borderline. Interestingly, the Finnish police officers are standing on Swedish territory.

I was on trip to Czech republic today.The traffic was low and the border checks were in place. Focused on all types of cars, predominantly with no-CZ/SK plates.

My cousin drove from Romania to Germany on Thursday. He told me that at both Hungary/Austria (Nickelsdorf) and Austria/Germany (Passau) border crossings there were border checks, but not everyone was stopped. Only vans or suspicious looking vehicles were stopped, the rest could pass with 30 km/h. He drove a Skoda Rapid with Romanian licence plates and was not stopped.

Who was checking - SK or CZ police, or both?

The next step will be taken in the beginning of 2016: There will be multinational police patrols: A Finnish and a Swedish police officer sharing a police car. This arrangement will span some 50 km on both sides of the border.

Meaning the finnish police has no right to perform their work where they are standing.

They have right to watch, and if needed, ask help from Swedish police. As far as I have understood, Swedish police was also there, just out of picture.

Watching people is obviously easier when facing them, not their backs.

I think pragmatically, no-one is going to object to the Finnish police standing in Sweden to do their job. You often see examples of border guards standing in the "wrong" country when talking to their counterparts, too.

Anyway, at Bajakovo (direction SRB->HR), freight crossings have been suspended, with a 6km queue in the other direction. What's going on there?

It's pretty amazing to see that in today's Europe.

What was it, 25 years ago, if they sneezed over a line they'd get shot?

You routinely see Romanian police conducting passport controls on Bulgarian territory and vice versa.

Also I have seen Hungarian police in RO conducting controls on behalf of both nations.

Yes, police conducting controls on the "opposite" territory is somewhat normal. Almost all of Croatia's border crossings with Slovenia have police on the SLO side, with only two (I think) on the HR side.

Croatian revenge because migrants are now going to Croatia from Serbia and not Hungary anymore.

I just hope and pray that Sweden doesn't shut it's borders

I see they have "agreed" to distribute the famous 120000 immigrants.

Now they'll just have to agree on the 10000 new ones coming every day.

A new bridge over river Poprad opens tomorrow on Polish-Slovak border (Piwniczna-Zdrķj - Mníšek nad Popradom). It connects Polish national route 87 and Slovak national route 68.

Some photos from Polish forumers:

Crossed very recently:

Kapčiamiestis (LT) / Berżniki (PL)



My remark as a non-Lithuanian and non-Pole: on the Lithuanian why putting a very nice banner in English-only "Welcome to the Lazdijai district - land of lakes, etc." instead of putting it in Polish? I am pretty confident the vast majority of people crossing the border over there are Poles from Sejny/Augustķw/Berżniki do not speak English Moreover, on the Polish side, you can see quite a few "kvečiame" or "baidarų nuoma" in Lithuanian!

Norviliškės (LT) / Piackuny Пяцкуны (BY):
Since last year, they have repaired the РЭСПУБЛІКА БЕЛАРУСЬ roadsign (don't have any clue what for as no one seems to cross the border here ... There is no Lithuanian border control place). See the Peugeot 406 on the Belarusian side

so why are there no more migrants at Horgoš? because Serbian buses ride only to Batrovci/Bajakovo due to some H-SRB agreement?
