2008 NO-RU Norra-Venemaa Norvegia-Russia


  1. Hi Pilland!

    I like this pic. I had curiosity for knowing how it would be this border, perhaps one of the borders least known in Europe.

    Thank you!

  2. For Gaiato alentejano - This part of Russia is very militarized. The border is crossed usually by some tourists coming from Norway, who just want to touch Russia. Russia allows them to enter in change of some money for a temporary visa. From here You can go nowhere else, because there are neither roads, nor railways. Besides, take in consideration that until 1940 there was no border between Norway and Russia, because Finland did arrive until the harbour of Petsamo (today Pechenga). The Sami population of here, after 2 wars between USSR and Finland, were expelled and the area, as said in the beginning, became militarized.

  3. Thank you so much for your information. It's a shame. Always the policy... The militarization of these part of Russia could be undertood in the context of the Cold War when Norway was a NATO member ant USSR the main member of the Warsaw Pact, but not today. I don't considere actual Russia like a country with a real democracy which really is a shame, especially for Russian people.

    Best wishes!

  4. Hi. The border does not run at the gate. The area behind the gate is the border control on the norwegian side. The border itself is in the distance in this picture, perhaps 100-150m from the gate after the border post. You have a picture of it with the yellow and green/red gate.

    Thanks for an awesome site!

    1. Hello there and thank You. This is the border between Norway and Russia along the European route 105 (look at https://maps.google.it/maps?ll=69.659712,30.204763&spn=0.02336,0.077162&t=h&z=14 ) and You are right on the fact that after the gate there are still 100 metres of Norwegian territory, however You cannot pass the gate without the documents to go to Russia. It is a kind of "no man's land".
      But the hill after the checkpoint is completely in Russian territory.
      Another view of this area is visible at the following link: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/66891264
      Thank You again and all good wishes!
