It's village of Strezimirovci which is half in Bulgaria and half in Serbia. There are more divided villages by the border but Strezimirovci is the most famous.
I agree totally with you about disadvantage of population.

If you want, you may see this in Google Earth - start from the Kapitan Andreevo BCP (they begin right east from the check point), or from the see (5-6 km. north from the village of Rezovo).
That is what I mean...

Thanks! I wasn't on that "Via Baltica" border because we decided to drive through Ainaži and Ikla to see how the border on the beach looks like.

I don't really know but in the second photo from Valga you can see the same sign on the Estonian side. It's in Estonian and Russian language, without Latvian.

A few pics I took when I was on my way to the top of Ciprnik mountain (near Kranjska Gora, SLO).

1. Zoomed picture of the Würzenpass.

2. View towards the I/SLO/AT tripoint (Mt. Peč). The mountains in the background are in Austria.

3. View towards Rateče. The SLO/I border crossing is left of the village.

4. Zoomed picture of the border station.

5. Looking north, the Würzenpass can be seen here.

6. The Würzenpass seen out of the chairlift. I couldn't get the Würzenpass on a picture without a cable, sorry.

7. The saddle of the Würzenpass.

Nice pics; it's Wurzenpass, btw (Korensko sedlo). I crossed the old Italian-Austrian border crossing the other day (the one beside the A23/A2 motorways), and was surprised to see the Slovenian flag too.

At the entrance of the Twente university campus (Enschede) there are also a few flags: Dutch, German (understandable), Italian (weird) and Slovak. I haven't got a clue what that Slovak flag is doing there

What you see, are EU-, Austrian, Slovak and Hungarian flags; they have a tripoint.
