The most unusual border

In America, the interstate, and at the same the EU between countries,
boundaries of conventional and not always noticeable. There is, perhaps, a sign of greeting in a particular place.
However, in the world there are unusual and remarkable borders,
which will be discussed today.

The border of Spain in Morocco

Small autonomous city of Ceuta belongs to Spain and is located on the north coast of North Africa. It is surrounded by Morocco on the one hand, and on the other the Strait of Gibraltar. Its area - 18, 5 square. km, population - 75 thousand. people. Morocco demands the return of Ceuta, together with the Spanish autonomous city of Melilla, and many other Mediterranean islands.

The border between Belgium and the Netherlands among the tables in the cafe & quot; / & gt;
Noteworthy is the state border between Baarle-Hertog and Baarle-Dutch municipality of Nassau, which passes through the neighborhoods and individual homes and shared Baarle-Hertog on 24 separate areas - the main settlement, 20 exclave surrounded by the territory of the Netherlands and the three sites adjacent to the Belgian territory. Seven Dutch exclaves are inside Belgian territory (within the main settlements and the largest enclave). A situation where individual houses are separated by a state border, arose when Dutch laws restaurants had closed early. Then the hosts began to place their restaurant on the border during the "closed" moving the customer to the tables on the Belgian side.

Bir Tawil

Bir Tawil - a territory with a total area of ​​2060 square kilometers, bordering Egypt to the north, and from the west, south and east Sudan. Both countries give up their claims to the Bir Tawil, so it is a "no man's land." Under the agreement, the border between the 1899 Egypt and Sudan took place on the 22th parallel. However, in 1902, Britain launched a new "administrative border", whereby Halaibsky triangle was placed under the control of the administration of the Sudan. At the same time Bir Tawil was placed under the control of Egypt, since its territory was used as pasture tribe living in Egyptian territory. After both countries gained independence, Halaibsky triangle remained under the control of the Sudan, and Bir Tawil - under Egyptian control. In 1958, Egypt demanded the return of the Sudan to the border in 1899 and the transfer of Halaibskogo triangle in exchange waived his right to Bir Tawil (which has a much lower value). Sudan has not agreed to give up a triangle and still recognize the border in 1902. So there is a unique situation - both countries bordering the Bir Tawil, do not consider it their territory. The permanent population in the area is not.
