That's my favorite part too. Driving from Prague back home to Zakopane my cousin advised us to take a less traffic prone route which required us to cross the border three times (CZ > PL, PL > SK, SK > PL) and it saved us so much more time, not to mention it was a much more scenic route. Wouldn't have been such a fast drive if we had to stop and wait in line every single time we passed a border check.

Is it true that it is much easier to cross the H/UA border than to cross the PL/UA border? I read this in a Dutch newspaper some time ago.

Me too. Those working on the Serbo-Hungarian border seem pretty impolite. But when you are coming from Romania, there is no problem at all. Everything is going well, and takes a few minutes to enter in HU.

Has anyone ever crossed Hungary-Serbia border, On the Serbian side you drive on a 2 lane highway for a while and they make you pay like it is a motorway toll! Unbelievable for a 1X1 road!! Why!?!

That happens everywhere. Many one-lane tunnels are tolled in the Alps, and toll vignettes are also required for one-lane highways in Switzerland for instance. Norway levies tolls on many single lane back roads.

Interesting pictires of that HU-SK border. I am wondering, how tough was the border in the communiost times between HU and CS? We kno a lot about the East-German border, mut not much about the borders between the communist states in those times (HU, CS, PL, RO, BG).

Well when I was a kid, I and my parents often crossed the austrian-cechoslovak border near Bratislava, Berg. there were few cars but it took you at least 1 hour to cross. They checked everything, even with a mirror under the car! After the border there were still a post where you were checked again, fortunately only passports. But now that time has gone and the border at Berg is dismantled and on slovak side they made a small museum about the history of the border.
The biggest absurdity was that even if you held the CS passport you had to ask a special permission of the embassy, in my case the one in Rome, to enter the country.

You have similar situation in Greece and don't worry within 2 years it will be upgraded to a full motorway.

Was the German-Czechoslovak border also that bad?

Yeah, according to the stories of my dad. He's a teacher and went on school trips to Prague in the 80's. And they had to drive all the way around the DDR via Nürnberg to Prague. (which is a detour from Zwolle)

I wonder how the other countries were. For example: How Turkish poeple dit that when they drove from Netherlands/Germany to Turkey. In those times that journey went through Yugoslavia (which had not really though checks), but how when they wanted to pass through Bulgaria? Or did they always drive through Greece?

And countries which were more 'closes' than others (like Romaina for example), was that also that bad?
I also wonder how people like there in Cered could easly cross the border to CS or not? Or from HU to RO (since those states were 'friends'). And RO-BG, HU-CS, CS-PL, PL-DD, etc.
