Why is there an old border stone? Until 1993, there hadn't been a border for centuries.

the autro-hungarian empire was divided in 2 parts, austrian and hungarian and probably that old stone shows the borders between the 2 entities.

In 1954 the free territory of Trieste was definitely divided between Italy and Yugoslavia, confirmed by the treaty of Osimo in 1975.

That photo was taken somewhere between 1947 and 1954 when the Free State of Trieste existed. It would also be interesting to see an old border crossing between Slovenia and the part of Trieste state that was taken over by Slovenia, as well as between Croatia and the part of Trieste state that was taken over by Croatia. They are now all inner borders. I guess a border crossing with Slovenia (YU) was on Črni Kal (viaduct), and with Croatia (YU) also by that viaduct over river Mirna.

Perhaps you fine people on Skyscrapercity could help me solve a little mystery.

As I'm sure you're all aware, the infrastructure on the main Polish-German border crossing at Swiecko is/was located on the Polish side of the border. However, going back...

Was the border infrastructure always located at Swiecko, or was there the relevant infrastructure on the German side too? I'm specifically interested in the period 1950-1989 - I can't find any evidence online to suggest that there was indeed control buildings on the East German side too.

Any ideas?

i have never been there, but this is design for typical croatian border crossing, so probably it's croatian side (Maljevac), although there are some HR-BIH border crossing where police cooperates, so you don't have 2 sides

I know this is an old post, but here's some clarification. This photo is taken from Bosnian side, going west from the Velika Kladusa city centre. The little grey looking house you see on the far left of the photo is the Croatian checkpoint. I am not sure whether they built a new checkpoint since this picture was taken or not.

you're totaly wrong. that is joined border crossing. first, what would HR flag do at Bosnian side (or opposite - what would BIH flag do at Croatian side)? second - look at google earth, you can see old border crossing, both BIH and HR sides are similar with blue roofs, and you can clearle see construction site of new, joined border crossing just beside HR old one.
this little grey house with red roof you can nicely see at google earth just beside old BIH check point.

and here is the, as you call it, clarification: http://www.vlada.hr/hr/naslovnica/no...velika_kladusa

Sorry for questions about things that you were writing about few months earlier, but I'm cuorious.

There was no borders between Baltic countries during USSR, then 15 years of borders, and now there is no borders anymore. How it looked, was any problems with making border fences etc. Dividing houses... I would like to read some experiences about no-yes-no borders situations (same with Czech republic and Slovakia)

Thank you in advance!

Great topic!

I found a site about the divided town of Valga (Estonia) and Valka (Latvia). There's a garage that straddles the border.

I would have expected one of the real border geeks to have replied by now.

Well, what you want to hear? In case of CZ - SK border it was indeed weird. Before the dissolution of Czechoslovakia there were agreements according to which our relations should have been similar to relations between EU countries nowadays - common currency, customs union, no border checks, however they were withdrawn by Czech Republic within few months after dissolution so suddenly there appeared borders.

Some people realised they have to cross the border on their way to work or school, fortunately only ID card was necessary at the border check point. There were some little border alignments thanks to which communities suddenly living outside their country became again part of their homeland. Of course, there were problems with border waiting times, but it wasn't like iron curtain or Schengen border. There were no fences or stuff like that as well, new were only border check points. It also wasn't possible to cross the border wherever one wants, but it wasn't real problem for many people since there was plenty of official border crossings and none actually controlled if someone is trespassing the border illegally.

I tried to make a panorama picture, but it's a bit unsharp, unfortunately. I made this panorama when I was walking close to Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. The hill in the centre of the pic, with the deforested line on it's slope, is Mt. Peč, the point where Austria, Italy and Slovenia come together.
