The start of my July 2017 trip when I expected lower water in the swamp.

Although it's only one kilometer from Värska, we are now entering the swampy area. Here is the last possibility for normal cars to reach the border. Long gangways make it possible to inspect the border without getting wet feet.

The Estonian border marker looks very fresh.

Here is started in July 2017. Everything looks green now. In the meantime the Estonian copy was erected. In fact, the Estonians finished placing their border markers in May 2017. Now the whole land border is covered.

EE-RU  20160415 Near border marker 506
The end of the April 2017 trip. From here on it will be very swampy. The Border Guards advised me to come back in summer, the water would not be so high and it's easier to follow the border then.
In fact, I was unlucky: the water was still rather high due to heavy rain falls so it took me quite some effort to reach 507.

You wouldn't presume, but it's really swampy here. From here I couldn't continue and had to skip 508 until 521.

EE-RU  20160415 Border markers at Border Kordon Värska
When I visited the office of the Border Guards in Värska in April 2017 I found the last bundle of border markers to be placed.
