In the Netherlands they are not in the official list. I think that this is a kind of agreement between the EU-states, althoug not every country (like Ireland and the United Kingdom) uses them.

I have once made this picture of a bungalowpark in the Netherlands. It is not on a border, but a kind of feeling that the guest should have that he would leave the country when entering the bungalowpark

End-of-the-country signs are quite rare, aren't they?

That sign is not official, as Palance explained. It's just when you enter a Center Park that you have to feel 'abroad'.

Swiss vote for Schengen



finally it seems that the borders between Europe and Switzerland will not suddenly reappear.
Strange that the most rich areas in the north do not seems to be scared by romanians and bulgarians while the ticino it is.

Do you have any idea whether this situation/those signs still exist (since both countries are in Schengen now)? I am going to Slovenia/Croatia in a few months, should be an interesting place to viist on my way to Istria.

Their being in Schengen doesn't impact whether those signs are there or not. I could imagine that the ITALIA sign is still there while the Slovenes have replaced theirs with a blue EU sign.

That is right, but the situation was from the pre-Schengen time, when it was more important to know in which country you were, than it is now. I have seen more pictures of that particulair road which was fenced to prevent people crossing the border illegally. I can image that that has been removed as well.

The 12-stars sign has official standing in both Spain and Portugal (i.e., is in the official signing catalogues). I am not sure about Denmark.
