We have previously written about borders that are nowadays only visible on the map. Here is one more example. The picture above shows the border between Lithuania and Latvia.

The picture was taken at this crossing

The Wall fell and 10 years later began the negotiations for EU entry. Today, all three Baltic countries are a part of the European Union, and there is no reason to establish border controls between these neighboring countries. Therefore, it’s simple to cruise on the dirt roads through the Baltics.

The Baltic countries have borders to Russia. Read more about it here. And click here for a border crossing between Germany and the Czech Republic.
