This is perhaps interesting - it's of the temporary barge river crossing in Zupanja which was installed after the conflicts ended, with the Croatian checkpoint visible.

And how is it with the sizes? Is the old one the A7 format and the new one the credit card format?

And how is it with the car registration certificates in Germany? Because when I checked it on Google Images, I couldn't really realize how it looks like.
OLD ID = A7
NEW ID = credit card format

car registration is also A7.

This is possibly Županja → Orašje. I think that bridge over Sava is a boat, because the bridge wasnt built to Republika Srpska.

Russian enclave is Transdnistria for example. My posts are legitimate, if you dont want to read my posts, its easy hint for you, skip them.

Transnistria is a part of Moldova that claims to be independent. And while it's quite pro-Russia, it's actually practically managed by one company, to which almost all types of business in this country belong - Sheriff.

By the way, Transnistria still has the sickle and hammer on its flag and in its coat of arms So equally, you could say it's still a part, or a remnant of the Soviet Union. But this would be rather far from truth, same as saying it's a part of Russia. Russia doesn't claim it.

They actually want to become a part of Russia and they asked Russia for annexation in 2014, but Russia did not do that.

So you definitely can't say Russia claims this territory. Russia doesn't want it.

Even the football club of Sheriff Tiraspol plays in the Moldovan league, not in the Russian one.

You can't even say it's a communist country (which would make some sense looking at its flag and coat of arms), as the business is dominated there by one private company.

Transnistria isn't even recognized by Russia as a country - the only "countries" that recognize it are: Abkhazia, Republic of Artsakh and South Ossetia.

That would be an exclave not enclave. Enclave is for example San Marino from the Italian point of view.

And you are absolutely wrong. Russia claims no such land.

I understand you both, but what I want to say is that Russia is supporting the government of Transnistria with money and free heating gas. That said, although politically they are still bond to Russia.
We have been talking here but there is a border checkpoint between Moldova and Transnistria. The same as in Geogria with South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Passing these 'borders' I think you have to have special Russian permissions.

To go from Moldova to Transnistria you don't need any Russian permissions. A bus from Chisinau to Tiraspol goes even more frequently than every half an hour - so there must be lots of people moving or commuting on this route. If you don't plan to stay in Transnistria for longer than 10 hours, a passport is enough to cross the border from Moldova.

http://postimg.org/image/j25vy6v7l/ - actually, it looks like the most frequent bus connection from Chisinau

Internationally it is recognized Russia borders 14 countries. You haven't even listed your 15 bordering countries. So stop messing up and stick to a widely accepted point of view.
Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, People's Republic of China, Mongolia, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Japan, United States. That actually makes 16.

Funny fact: if you take Japan's point of view, then Japan and Russia are not neighbours: there are international waterways between Hokkaido and Sakhalin, as well as between Southern Kuril Islands and Northern Kuril Islands, so those wouldn't count as borders.

However, if you take Russia's point of view, as it is recognised by most countries, then Southern Kuril Islands belong to Russia; and there is no international waterway between them and Hokkaido.

Anyway, if you count the maritime border with the United States but not with Japan, then you'll get 15.

I think it's not in the same place as the current crossing, though I'm not certain of it. But yes, it's a boat crossing, not a bridge at this time.

There was a bridge there in Yugoslav times, but it was destroyed during the wars.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0nIXjP1gs8

An interesting video here showing how the border crossing looked between Bosnia-Hercegovina and Croatia, just shortly after the Republic of Serbian Krajina had collapsed. An interesting note from history is that the sign on the border refers to the Republic of Bosnia and Hercegovina, which (depending on your interpretation) was only to exist for either a few more months, or until 1997.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OE42pFBXyA

Another interesting video here, this time between the wartime Republika Srpska and Yugoslavia.

And finally, between Croatia and Montenegro:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzkW8unBFW8

This one is especially interesting as it shows the old controls on the Yugoslav side of the border. What's especially interesting here is that it shows how relations were relatively normal between Yugoslavia and Croatia here - the border is closed, but not particularly fortified.

Cool videos. Thnx for sharing. AP is really nice to show authentic footage around the world. How frequent was it to bribe the border officers compared to the time nowadays? I love the sequence when the guys are gathered around a table at the petrol station drinking coffee.

In SFRY, BiH was independent socialist republic within the Constitution of SFRY. After SLO and HR declared independence in 1991 it was shortly follow by MK and then by BiH.
The thing is the refferendum was boycotted by the Serbs and war starter. So I say this because during the war actually BiH was Republic considering the fact that it had the borders that were internationally recognized.
The European Community recognized BiH, many today in the Balkan say that this was the mistake that triggered the war.

An no, after the Dayton Agreement which was signed in December 1995, BiH became federal parliamentary republic with two ethnic entities.

Also the flag is of the Bosnian Muslims if you notice, since the new flag was designed according to Dayton and the old socialist republic of Bosnia had the SFRY flag on a red ground, unlike the other republics, which had their own. Can you even guess why?

Maritime borders are sometimes tricky for example Italy and Croatia. Also Slovakia possesses some tiny area in the middle of the Pacific ocean so who knows who we border to.

Maybe - but it doesn't change that no internationally recognized country (including Russia) recognizes Transnistria as a country.

We can discuss whether Kosovo is a country or not, but in case of Transnistia, it's obvious it isn't, as even Russia, even though it supports it, it doesn't recognize it internationally.

Nice to know that Slovakia has an oversees property. Poland has no colonies at all (although Madagascar was supposed to become one one time in the history - but our people didn't succeed with that), what we only have is one polar scientific station in Antarctica.
