The Most Unusual Border Crossings in the World

 Borders are usually pretty drab places - they personally make me think of barriers, gates and guards, but there are certain borders around the world that are the complete opposite of what you'd normally come to expect. As you'll see below, sometimes borders are just symbolic lines passing through a restaurant or country road. In other instances, there are no markings at all! See for yourself below:

This border isn't quite as eye-catching as the others we've shown you, but it's still pretty unusual. It runs straight through the middle of the Eurode business center, and is marked by a metal strip. 
Russia — United States

This island lies between Russia and the United States. It's 35 kilometers away from both Chukotka in Russia, and Alaska. Despite the proximity of the two places, the time difference is 21 hours.
