I haven't seen this new one but I expect that I was built small due to future Croatian membership in Schengen. I hope that I'll be soon.

Italy To Restore Passport Checks For G8 Summit


ROME (AFP)--Italy will re-introduce passport checks at all border posts in the run-up to hosting July's summit of the world's richest nations, its foreign minister said Friday.

Franco Frattini said Rome would suspend the 1985 Schengen agreement, which allows for passport-free travel between 25 European countries, for security reasons from June 25, when Group of Eight foreign ministers are due to meet in northeastern Trieste.

The minister said the temporary suspension of Schengen "has always been applied for international summits," quoted by ANSA news agency.

The G8, whose leaders will meet from July 8-10 for the full summit, groups the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia and the U.S.

The last G8 summit in Italy, at Genoa in 2001, was marked by a violent crackdown on anti-globalisation protesters which left one demonstrator dead, hundreds injured and caused millions of euros in damage.
18th June - 15th July, in the summer, the timing couldn't be worse.

It says June 25th. I hate these suspensions, people who want to do wrong can enter the country anyway. They also did that when there was a summit in Germany last year. Do you really think they installed border checks on every country road between NL and D? You can pass the border without checks. We're not in the barbed-wire era anymore...

The problem is that the italian interior minsitry is from the aprty that doesn´t like EU and Schengen. He tried to doe verything to suspend Schengen and the free movement of romanians. So now he is happy that for some weeks he cna proof how good idea is to have border chcek and to get more popular. Now in Italy this really works.

You are right. I think ti is enough to make tough police chcecks around the city where the summit is held. The police will not stop everyone, just those who seems suspicious. It will amke jsut queues at the borders. And the non sense to prolong the suspension for 1 week after the summit.
It would be nice to hold less summits in Europe

I don't know, it says otherwise here. I guess it's the most recent date, and sounds logical, if they wanna control the border longer. It's a long article, that's why I didn't post it; I didn't even notice different dates.

Indeed it looks like a good excuse to bring back border control. But what do they want? I can't imagine reintroducing control on borders with Austria and France, b/c controling only the Slovenian (and possibly Swiss) border is useless, as you can enter Italy from Austria and France. And if you ask me, Italian maffia is a bigger problem than Romanians. Not to mention Africans.

I guess more than that they can´t. And they even can´t reject the Schengen agreement. Romanians are a good political tool to get votes nwoadays in Italy. Mafia is endemic to the country and there you can get few votes. That political party, northern league (lega nord) was losing voters in the last yeras, they just got back thanks to the romanians.

I guess crime has nationality too. And it seems to be important in Italy.

It was because of "Romani people from Romania in Rome" that the extreme right formation in the EP broke down. We should be grateful!

HR-H Gola - Berzence

welcome to socialism this is the smallest and the worthless international border crossing between Croatia and Hungary. it has mostly local character (although it is international, not only interstate border crossing), but anyway few times i saw, you've guessed, Dutch cars using it (unfortunately, not yesterday, when i took those photos)

you are very right Verso!Most of romanians are legally working in italy, and they are very much needed for italian economy.romanians are used mainly in the construction's sector, where no italians will like to work.and many women's from romania are taking care of elderly italians, and that's another kind of work an italian women wouldn't do.of course there are some romanians with bad intentions but that's because their activities were much tolerated by italian police.first of all italia must get rid of corrupted police officers that tolerate infractionality, instead of imposide such kind of barriers towards free movement of people.

I was not accusing Romanians. The problem isn't so much corrupted police but the law system. Small criminals can easily spoil the holes in the italian law system. For example till now if there was an illegal immigrant or a foreigner condemned for a crime, they just got a paper saying they must leave the country. They were never deported. Now this new government tries to be tough, but it is more a bla bla bla to get votes, in fact they cut money for police so i guess police will use stones and ropes to cathc criminals on bikes.More or less few things changed, but the enemy is done, Romanians. Anyway it is said that there are around 1 million Romanians in Italy, just in Turin 100.000 having also own construction companies. But you know this government created a panic and every Romanian seems to be a threat to them. I know some Italians who complains about Romanians being criminals, I asked them if they met any of them or if Romanians did something to them, the answer was no, never.

PL/CZ Jasnowice-Bukovec:


Widok w głąb kraju. Do niedawna naiwniacy tacy jak ja płacili 5 zł zaraz po wjeździe do kraju lokalnym 'przedsiębiorcom' za parkowanie na 'prywatnym parkingu' po prawej i po lewej ...



... nie wiedząc o tym, że darmowy parking z kostki brukowej był o parę metrów za plecami włacznie z darmowym WC.
W głębi były posterunek celniczy i granica, która biegnie środkiem potoku.



Prawie że wzorowy układ znaków i tylko jedna mała reklama za znakiem z prędkościami.



No i proszę, nawet ładnie to wygląda!



Widok w kierunku Czech. Do niedawna odprawa celna była tutaj. Dziś jest tu galeria malarstawa i ...



... dom trzech narodów.
Aż mnie w gardle ścisnęło jak to zobaczyłem.
I jak tu nie lubić bycia w strefie schengenskiej?



Słup graniczny, widok w kierunku Polski.



Międzynarodowa kałuża, kolejny słup graniczny i czeskie oznakowanie.



Nowy styl czeskich ograniczeń szybkości. Marzę o tak prostym znaku u nas!

So I made yesterday this video of the motorway border crossing between Slovakia and Austria. As you can notice the Austrians are dismantling the border, the Slovaks do nothing and there are no info about the future about the infrastructure. Probably they will keep it for some more time as it cost at that time 33 millions €, big waste of money!
Sorry for the video trembling, but it is the bad motorway paving.

Really bad pavement. Is that Slovenian annual vignette on your windshield?

The Polish-Czech border crossing is really beautiful. I've got an impression that Polish border crossings are well incorporated into nature; here, all trees around them would be cut down.

Yes it is slovenian, half year. But on my windshield I have a collection of vignettes, I just miss the romanian, while the hungarian is fortunately electronic.
