The Borders Between These Countries are Absolutely Incredible – 18 Photos

If you want to learn about the relationship between two bordering countries, look no further than their physical boundaries. Some of them are natural wonders. Some are unwelcoming walls. Others are polite lines drawn in the ground that seem to simply request you not cross over without making your presence known to government officials.

Aside from revealing a lot about what two neighboring nations think about each other, these borders are also just cool to look at. Many are beautiful; others are super complicated. Take a look.

As awesome as it was to see these pictures imagine how great the world would be if we didn’t need borders at all. That doesn’t look like it’s going to happen any time soon, but one can always dream.
