Meanwhile, the JNA troops at the border stayed in their barracks or abandoned them, I don't remember which.

I think there were attacks from the air, but not much else.

Verso will know, where are you?

But yes, traffic diverted away from the Yugoslav border crossings because the JNA aim was to retake them, so they were dangerous places to be. But from what I remember seeing and watching, Slovenia and Austria never closed the borders, it just wasn't particularly wise to be there.
I vaguely remember news footage of Sentilj of around 30 June. Tanks or other armoured vehicles were present at the border complex. I think even one or more shots were fired. I also believe that trucks/trailers near the overpass for trucks were used to block the border or something.

Not only the one, but a stadium quite near to a border.

Speaking of the A-SLO-border. This is a strange one:
1. Looking towars Slovenia: It just looks like someone just crossed the border by car into SLO: https://www.google.nl/maps/@46.65180...7i13312!8i6656

2. Looking towards Austria: The roads suddenly ends here and is hardly accessible by car. But still you can see the sign for approachting the Austrian border in the background.
https://www.google.nl/maps/@46.65180...7i13312!8i6656

When I look in google maps or Open Streetmap, there does not seem to be any through road across the border anyway.

Just been doing some research for an article, and a question comes to mind : does anyone know of any manned guardposts on European borders?

What I mean is something like this - https://www.google.com/maps/@45.8425...7i13312!8i6656 - this is the (now unmanned) guardpost on the SLO-HR border in Bregana. Or also this - https://www.google.com/maps/@45.8422...7i13312!8i6656

I'm looking for something comparable in Europe. The crucial thing is - it shouldn't be a legal border crossing, but rather a sort of point to prevent people from crossing the border. The other thing - it shouldn't be the Russian border zone as it's well known.

Does anything like this still exist?

Friendship Bridge
there are so many "Friendship Bridges" in this world .... Spain - Portugal , Paraguay -Brazil , Canada - USA .. even in my country there is one ... The one at Giurgiu linking Romania with Bulgaria over the Danube ..... my question is ... if there are many bridges that are called ".. of frendship" why isn't there any bridge that is called " the bridge of enmity" ? just kidding ... there is one bridge that can be called like this ... one city , 2 enthities ... the bridge over the Ibar river , Kosovska Mitrovica .... on one side the albanians , on the other the serbs ... oficially it is not a border , but in real life is more than that ......


Later on , the Serbs had seen that a baricade at the end of the bridge is not a pretty nice view so, instead they came with this ideea ... they named the place "Parc of peace"

.... although the Park of peace sounds nice and optimistic, a have a bitter taste when I'm writting this ...

You can cross a border not only by car but also by bike or motorbike. And a "road" over the border can also be a unpaved path. Not a real problem. In OSM there's a path drawn. So I don't really geht the point.

That one is not called Friendship bridge anymore. It was the name during communist times. At least in Bulgaria, this definitely isn't the name. It's called Dunav most 1 (Danube bridge 1) and the one at Vidin is Dunav most 2.

I wonder if the signs will be replaced as politics are fluid...
something like "Islamic State wishes you violent and painful death!" (at least in English )

Skagway, Alaska. A sleepy tourist town that is a common stop for cruise ships. It is only a few km from the Canadain border, and that border crossing is probably one of the crazier ones I've ever seen. Both the Canadian and American border facilities are over 12km from the border itself! As the two border facilities are 25km apart, it can take you close to a half hour to drive from the American border point to the Canadian one.

First, the context. The red line is the 25km distance between border control points, a sort of massive no mans land. Yellow is the actual border.



Now, the run down Canadian border. This location is so remote, the sun was setting on the Streetview car when it got there. This is actually quite common in northern Canadian streetview, the cars often keep driving well after sunset. It is also the only border control point I've ever seen where you can actually take streetview through it. You even see the border guard looking at the camera on top when you "pull in" to the security point. Interestingly, the security cameras seem to be pointed at the sky, not incoming traffic. Canadians clearly place high priority in ensuring cruise ship tourists stay within the US!



Next, the border itself. This is 12km from either security checkpoint, looking towards Canada.



Finally, American border security. A much nicer building than Canada's, I must say. Note the far higher security set up, as if there are serious risks of smuggling large amounts of cocaine into a small town of less than 1,000 people. Again, this is 25km from the Canadian checkpoint. Crazy!
