I noticed a Romanian "Politia de Fronteria" in Ruse, Bulgaria the other morning. Is this a regular occurrence?

On the other side of the bridge - yes. In the city itself - no.

It seems quite logical to me. Hungary is in decent part of the World where the borders in Southern Serbia are more or less the war zones. I am fairly sure that most tourists would fly into Budapest and explore Serbia later on.

While they always seem to speak in English in their northern borders. Also a lot more nice and pleasant people.

When you enter Hungary from Serbia they also seem to use more serbian than english.
I can understand it if it is a small border crossing or if there is not much tranzit traffic. But when it is mainly tranzit traffic they really should use english if there is any need to communicate.


Overall a good trip and it will probably be wise to skip Czech Republic if possible until most of the road contructions is over. After that you will have really nice motorway.

Anyone know if the old border crossing at Spielfeld/Šentilj is still being used by migrants, or has it returned to normal?

On my way through there and I'd like to do some more exploring if possible...

Which migrants? The Balkan migrant route has been closed for months.

Can you please tell this also to the Austrian and German border police? They keep annoying people driving on the motorways with so-called-border-controls-which-anybody-can-avoid-without-any-stress.

Austria has de facto exited the Schengen Area.

<IMHO>
Controls are for those who can point and say "Look, we are doing something".
Schengen has been effective for 21 years, let's not draw conclusions from the last years.

There's a mess at Nickelsdorf right now, that's why I was wondering about Spielfeld/Sentilj.

I drive to Romania and back about once every month. On the last 5 occasions the border at Nickelsdorf on A4/M1 was always packed with cars waiting in a long queue for the so-called "control". As I do not want to spend 1 hour of start-and-stop, I used Google Traffic to see how's the traffic around and used this options:
- 2 times I crossed the border on the old parallel road; there was a policeman present at the border but didn't stop any car, he was just looking -> no lost time
- when also the old road was full, I used this alternative through Slovakia (I didn't go on the motorway in Slovakia as I didn't want to buy a vignette for less than 10 km). Although I drove on this option 3 times already, I haven't seen yet any police car or police officer in either Hungary, Slovakia or Austria checking or at least look at the traffic on this entire stretch of road.

Therefore, if you really have something to hide, you find a way of bypassing the so-called-border-checks which are really annoying if you travel a lot since they are not very productive.
