12 borders between countries that shatter all stereotypes

I have worked with borders all my life. I have probably visited more than 1000 border posts over the last 30 years. 

Whenever we hear ’state boarder’ we normally imagine guards, armed to the teeth, well-trained dogs, barbed wire and strict passport and Customs comtrols. Well it isn’t always so! 

Apparently, a border between many countries, is just a symbolic line passing through a sidewalk or a countryside road. Here are som great examples on borders.

Germany — Czech Republic: This majestic sight is a border between Germany and Czech Republic. The view is simply breathtaking!

Norway — Sweden: This slope is at the border between Norway and Sweden.

Poland — Ukraine: This giant fish ’trespassing’ the border between Poland and Ukraine symbolizes the national boundary between these countries. Creator — Polish artist Jarosław Koziara.

Sweden — Finland: You can even play golf on the Finnish-Swedish border.

Argentina — Brazil — Paraguay: Argentina —on the left, Brazil — on the right, Paraguay — in the middle.

Brazil — Uruguay: The border between these countries takes place directly on the sidewalk. Brazil — on the left, Uruguay — on the right.

Canada — United States: The border between Canada and United States passes through a town called Derby Line — right through the buildings.

Belgium — Netherlands: You can enter a cafe in the Netherlands and leave it in Belgium.

Nepal — China: The border between Nepal and China passes directly over Everest.

Germany — Netherlands: The border between Germany and the Netherlands is marked with a metal strip in the Eurode business center. Although the mailboxes are on both sides of the border, letters reach their recipients only a week later.

Russia — United States: This is an island between Russia and the United States. The island is only 35 km away from both Chukotka and Alaska. Despite this, the difference in time is 21 hours.

China — Mongolia: There is absolutely nothing extraordinary on the border between China and Mongolia. Just two kissing dinosaurs.
