I love it, no more waiting in your car for hours. I wonder if Croatia will also join Schengen the moment they join EU, or that they're gonna wait a few more years like RO/BG.

Croatia will not join Schengen at the moment they will join the EU. Slovenia is even lately intensively upgrading it's border control points with Croatia. So, I guess Croatia will join Schengen with Romania and Bolgaria.

Hmm, I haven't really noticed it, even MK plates before me only had to show their passports, nothing else. I didn't saw a single car that was checked beyond a quick glance at the passports. And that for an outer Schengen border. I think the SLO-HR border is by far the easiest to get through as an entrance/exit from Fort Europe.

A few years back they didn't even chceck my passport when i went rhrough it, the guy just waved his hand and showed me to go ahead.

But hungarian border police (also Schengen border) is another thing. Hate those guys at the customs.

Bulgaria is scheduled to join Schengen in 2012.

sometimes they have larger checks. those at Macelj are experienced and if you are nto suspicious, you will pass smoothly. but at smaller border crossings where officers are bored they often check what do you have in your car

Well, the new interior minister said recently that he will make a check what the proggress with Schengen is, as the department that was supposed to work on that topic didn't do anything in the last three months. He will then inform the EU what is the situation and if we will be ready to enter Schengen in 2012. There is still time, more than two years and if the new government is working well I don't think there will be such a problem with corruption.

In USA they know very well how tom keep their borders strong from illegal immigration,but look what is happening in Europe,illegal immigrants from all over Asia and Africa come every day,and all members MUST receive that asylants,for example in Lybia is momentaly waiting about 2 millions of Africans to transport in Europe,till Italy,Malta,Greece or Cyprus(they are waiting also in Turkey coast,but in Morroco also)...

It is not a true,mostly fruits from Serbia is exporting to Russia and Baltic states(your Estonia,too),and truckers wait max.2 days on border with Russia,but convoys of trucks are about 1000 or more,so any border control in EU couldn*t do import papers and spedition busy..For example entry in Hungary for trucks from Serbia is a couple of hours,because it is entry in EU and Hungarian Customs work very lazy!!

But I have never been checked.

That wall was installed because too many people were crossing from Mexico to the USA (from right to left in the images) at places other than the official crossings. It is one of the few places in the World where the 'First' World and the 'Developing' World bump directly into each other.

There are also genuine worries in the USA about the long-term political and economic stability of Mexico and there was a real possibility of a total collapse there about 20 years or so ago (think: 'millions of refugees streaming northward'). The ongoing Drug War is also a potential destabilizing factor in Mexico.

That said, the cultures and economies of the two sides are fast becoming more and more like each other and the presence of a 'hard' border there is becoming increasingly absurd - and it would not surprise me at all if someday that border would completely disappear, even within my lifetime.

I think eventually countries will see how well Schengen works and dissolve borders. US/Mexico is a tough one but really having a border between US and Canada is silly.

Imagine having a border nowadays between France and Germany. The mere thought nowadays of border checks and visas etc there is crazy.

Liechtenstein isn't in Schengen yet. First countries implemented Schengen in 1995, Scandinavia in 2001 and eastern EU in 2007.

You can see the border on the pic, and Austria behind it. Also, Austrian Slovenes chose to live in Austria on a referendum instead of in dictatorial Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.
