Most people follow long roads and sometimes they are confronted with crossing a border.
... I follow long borders and sometimes I'm confronted with crossing a road....

I visited the State border between Slovakia / Hungary / Romania and Ukraine in April 2018.
I contacted the State Border Police Organisation of Slovakia, Hungary and Romania long time in advance to announce and discuss my envisaged trips and they gave their advices and full support. They also informed their Ukrainian colleagues to avoid unpleasent surprises during my presence in the State border area. During my hikes I was in close contact with the involved State Border Police Stations.
Many thanks to the Border Police Staff in Bratislava, Sobrance, Halmeu, Tarna Mare and to the most friendly Staff and Officers for their help and their cooperation!
Without your support I could never have achieved this.

If you ever have the stupid idea to visit parts of the mentioned State borders, please don't do this without proper preparation:
- get in contact with the State Border Police first to discuss your detailled plans;
- always keep a distance of at least 10 meter from the State border;
- respect all warming and STOP signs;
- in all cases: be aware that the State Border Police has very sophisticated methods to trace you: you will only experience this whenever you break any of their rules. Big brother is watching you. Penalties are high, you will loose their good-will and their confidence. So be warned!
I hope you will enjoy the pictures.
