^^ Post some pictures of Australian borders
I was twicew in East Berlin, when the wall was there, in 1985 and 1989 (it was that autumn the wall was destroyed, but I was there in summer). Of course it was strictly forbidden to make photos at East-West checkpoints and I had no chance to visit West-Berlin since my passport was only valid for communist nations.Unfortunately I was caught by surprise when I crossed the "Brücke der Deutschen Einheit" (Bridge of German Unity) on the A9 between Bavaria and Thuringia -- or West and East Germany, until 1990 -- so no pictures.
Does anyone knows if the Iron Gate 2 ( Djerdap ) has opened ?
which means : this border terminal does not work yet,but the authorities of the city hall from Negotin make use of this fact for the election,telling that it will be openOvaj granični prelaz još uvek nije u funkcije. Ali ga je DS iskoristila za izbornu kampanju u Negotinu, najavivši njegovo otvaranje.
^ Yes, it's scary because it is an abandoned place for more than 23 years. The Romanian press wrote many times (1 or 2[url]) - quoting Romanian authorities - that the Serbian part don't want that border to be opened. I don't know the reasons and I don't even know if it is true (Romanian authorities aren't always reliable). Anyway, the same debate was hosted months ago into the Romanian forums of SCC. The border crossing is located onto Romanian island of Ostrovu Mare, which is linked with the inland Romanian territory by this bridge, crossed only by the workers of Iron Gates 2 hydro power plant:
Well, it's a small world! :cheers: Noroc!Thank you so very very much for this information .. well ... i`m romanian actually with serbian roots...
Quoting from the first articole I gave you the link: "Nu stim daca partea sarba – asa cum invoca frecvent autoritatile romane – n-a dorit deschiderea acestui punct de trecere, nici daca infrastructura de care nu dispun vecinii nostri ar fi fost motivul ce tine de 23 de ani bariera mereu coborata la capatul podului." (Translation: "We don't know if the Serbian part didn't want the opening of this border crossing - as Romanian authorities always affirm - or if the lack of infrastructure on the Serbian side is the reason because of which the barrier is always lowered at the end of the bridge").i`ve read in the serbian press that they are really willing to open and they are ready to do this .. because the serbs don`t like too much transiting through Bulgaria ... but in the romanian press , didn`t found not one single article ... please give me the link with the article if you can ... it seems the romanian authorities don`t give a damn about this wich is a pitty because it would improve radically .
You are unfortunately so right... hno:... I can`t belive it .. we have the infrastructure and we do not use it ... the same thing is in Navoko and Lunga near Kikinda and Jimbolia .... there was a terminal border there but they closed it up ... last year they wanted again to reopen so instead and for those who would want to go Timisoara they would shorten the distance with 160 km !!!!! But the romanian side apollogied and said that due to the terms and conditions of european union they are unable to do so ... :bash::bash::bash: so instead od just 67 km ... the drivers must make a detour and go though Vatin and Moravita .... ....
Noroc si tie prietene ! kay:Well, it's a small world! :cheers: Noroc!
You are unfortunately so right... hno:
I don't understand why, but Serbian-Romanian frontier seems to became lately one of the most impenetrable in Europe. Even more, the few border crossing which remained are in and advanced state of degradation (Iron Gates I, Naidăş and so on). This is stupid, stupid, stupid :bash:, not only because we are supposedly good neighbours, but also because of large numbers of Romanians living in Serbia and Serbians living in Romania.
