Before it took a long time to cross the frontier. Now, they can go to other countries through Latvia and Poland. It's a big celebration for all the peoples of the EU: Lithuanians, Polish and all others bordering in Salociai-Grenstale between Latvia and Lithuania." 18. Guards carrying flag STORYLINE: The Latvia-Lithuania border control ceased to exist on Thursday, as most of the European Union's former communist new members joined the EU's passport-free travel zone. Hours before the end of border controls, Latvian and Lithuanian officials gathered at the Salociai-Grenstale border crossing, cutting a symbolic ribbon to open the way to passport-free travel in the Schengen area. "We have been waiting for a long time for this," said Simonas, a Lithuanian resident who attended the ceremony. A Lithuanian border police general said the "entire Lithuanian country will be happy." The entry of nine nations into the EU's Schengen area means citizens can travel by land or sea between 24 European nations from Portugal to Poland, Iceland to Estonia without facing border checks. It's a major step in their transition from Soviet satellites to full-fledged EU membership, but has also triggered fears of a flood of illegal immigrants that could stick Europe with a crisis similar to America's along its border with Mexico. The Schengen agreement is named after the village in Luxembourg where it was signed in 1985 by France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to allow citizens to travel freely between them. Since then they have been joined by Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Austria, Denmark, Sweden and Finland, as well as non-EU nations Norway and Iceland. Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Malta joined the EU in 2004, but have had to wait before gaining access to the frontier-free zone pending reforms to bring standards of their police and border guards in line with EU norms. On Friday European leaders are expected to celebrate the end of the border controls during a ceremony in Zittau, on Germany's eastern fringe, where the country meets Poland and the Czech Republic.

Weird Borders: Why Countries Have Pieces Detached
Ever wondered why a part of Russia is detached from the rest? There are a lot of weird borders in the world, and often the reason is that a country wanted access to the sea and fight like crazy to get it. They ignore any reasonable boundary between countries in exchange for a bizarre panhandle, or sometimes even cutting off parts of other countries to create a strange border situation called enclaves, which is when a part of a country is only reachable by land through other countries. This video goes over 3 bizarre border situations including why Russia has an the kaliningrad exclave, which is a result of a chain of events in world war 1 and world war 2 in which germany had a strange border where east prussia was an exclave cut off by the danzig corridor, which actually led to world war 2. There is also Angola's exclave of Cabinda cut off by the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This weird border is a by product of the scramble for Africa. Finally there is Croatia, which looks like it is taking all of Bosnia and Herzegovina's coastline until you look closely and notice a strange border strip which gives Bosnia ad Herzegovina a 20 kilometer coastline and detaches a piece of croatia. This weird border is a quirk of history, where the land in the balkans changed hands multiple times. Two Corrections: Poland was RE-created after ww1 as it was previously occupied by Germany and Russia. Also the video is a bit vague on who started ww2. It was Germany. As well Danzig is used as the name for the city of Gdansk because that is what it was at the time.

Wide of border control point with big poster STORYLINE: On the Polish-German border officials were preparing on Thursday for the former communist country to join the EU's passport-free travel zone. Border controls along the old Iron Curtain from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic cease to exist from midnight on Thursday. The entry of nine nations into the EU's Schengen area means citizens can travel by land or sea between 24 European nations from Portugal to Poland, Iceland to Estonia without facing border checks. As a condition for joining, the new members have tightened controls on their borders with non-EU nations and linked into an information exchange system for police and border guards around the EU. "The one-stop control will be abolished, but we are well equipped to guarantee the monitoring of the borders in the area around the borders in the future,'' said Jens Schobranski, the press officer for Federal police in Frankfurt/Oder. However some residents did have concerns. "It's going to be difficult for the police to control, but I hope everything is going to be fine,'' said a German citizen. Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Malta joined the EU in 2004, but have had to wait before gaining access to the frontier-free zone pending reforms to bring standards of their police and border guards in line with EU norms. Travellers from outside the EU will be able to move freely within the extended zone on a visa obtained from any one of the member nations. Among the changes expected Friday, controls will fade away on the busy land crossings between Germany and Poland. Air passengers flying between the old and new EU member states will continue to face passport controls, although they too are scheduled to disappear on March 30. The Schengen agreement is named after the village in Luxembourg where it was signed in 1985 by France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to allow citizens to travel freely between them.

Border Poland-Belarus, Grudki, Bialowieza, Podlaskie, Poland, Europe
Polish-Belarusian border is the state border between Poland and the Republic of Belarus. It has a total length of 398.6 km (247.7 mi), 418 km (260 mi) or 416 km (258 mi) It starts from the triple junction of the borders with Lithuania in the north and stretches to the triple junction borders with Ukraine to the south. Is also part of the EU border with Belarus. After September 1939 the BSSR were included in Western Belarus. Have established five new areas: Baranavichy, Belostokskaya, Brest, Pinsk and Vialejka. In accordance with the treaty signed August 16, 1945 between the USSR and Poland on the state border of Poland passed 17 districts Bialystok Region BSSR with 3 Bialystok and Brest region, where a significant amount of Poles lived. In 1946, during the refinement of the state border of the USSR and Poland from the Grodno Region in favor of the NDP were transferred to the village Klimovka, Minkovtsy, Nomiki, Taki, crush, Šimák Members of Sapotskinsky area - the village and Todorkavtsy Hvorostyan. Thereafter, and until now the border between Poland and Belarus has not changed. River borders (from north to south) are Black Gancia, Volkushanka, Svislach Narew and Western Bug. The Border Agreement between Poland and the USSR of 16 August 1945 established the borders between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and the Republic of Poland. It was signed by the Provisional Government of National Unity (Tymczasowy Rząd Jedności Narodowej) formed by the Polish communists. According to the treaty, Poland officially accepted the ceding its pre-war Eastern territory to the USSR (Kresy) which was decided earlier in Yalta already. Some of the territory along the Curzon line, established by Stalin during the course of the war, was returned to Poland. The treaty also recognised the division of the former German East Prussia and ultimately approved the finalised delimitation line between the Soviet Union and Poland: from the Baltic sea, to the border tripoint with Czechoslovakia in the Carpathians. The Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of August 1939 provided for the partition of the Second Polish Republic between the USSR and Nazi Germany. Following the corresponding invasions, a new border was drawn up, though based on the Curzon Line, deviated west of it in several regions. Most notably, was the Belastok Voblast, that was added to the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic, although most of the region was populated by Poles. After Germany's invasion of the USSR, the territory in question was also re-partitioned by the Nazis. Ukraine and Belarus were administered by the occupation Ostland and Reichskommissariat Ukraine Reichskommissariats. Galician territory east of the 1939 border and the Belastok Voblast plus adjacent territory to the east of this were transformed respectively into the Distrikt Galizien and Bezirk Bialystok, and subjugated directly to the Reich. Following the Soviet Union's liberation of Ukraine and Belarus, in 1943/1944 the Tehran and Yalta discussed upon the future of the Polish-Soviet borders, and the Allied leaders recognised the Soviet right to the territory east of the 1939 border. However, after the liberation of Western Ukraine and Belarus in summer of 1944, a Polish committee formed in the town of Sapotskin sent a letter to Moscow asking that they remain part of Poland. Stalin agreed, and on 29th of September, administration of 17 (of the 23) districts of Belastok Voblast (including the city of Białystok) and an additional three (Siemiatycze, Hajnówka and Kleszczele) of the Brest Voblast was passed to the Polish Committee of National Liberation from the BSSR. In October 1944 these were joined by a further transfer of Lubaczów, Horyniec, Laszki, Uhnów and Sieniawa raions of the Lviv Oblast from the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. In March 1945, an additional batch of land, the Bieszczady, Lesko, and most of Przemyśl raions(including Przemyśl city) were transferred to Poland from the Drohobych Oblast of Ukraine to the now Provisional Government of the Republic of Poland. Soon afterwards World War II finished, and as the Provisional Government continued to transfer administration from military to civil bodies, it also finalised its new borders with its neighbours, and in particular, the Soviet Union. On 16th of August 1945, the border agreement was officially signed by Edward Osóbka-Morawski, on behalf of the Provisional Government of National Unity and Vyacheslav Molotov, the Soviet Minister of Foreign affairs. The exchange of ratified documents occurred on 5 February 1946 in Warsaw, and from that date the agreement was in force.

Better Neighbors - The Road Across the Border
Four students -- two Latvians and two Estonians -- are traveling around Latvian and Estonia to find out where Estonians and Latvians understand each other the best, what they can do together, to study and which stereotypes they need to come across. Film takes place near the Latvian - Estonian border and the students take a road that connects both countries. Along this road they meet people who are learning to be better neighbors in order to gain mutual benefits. In this road movie students meet Estonian and Latvian farmers that learn from each other and are ready to grow ecological products for restaurants across the countries; musicians that perform together, playing their own traditional instruments; children and youngsters that are connected by motoring as on the Estonian, so on the Latvian side; and also visit borderland cities Valka and Valga where different generations develop neighborly relations. Film is a co-coproduction between Estonian film studio Allfilm and Latvian - Mistrus Media. Director of the film is Linda Olte, scriptwriter Guntars Daģis, camera operator Jurģis Kmins, assistant director Daiga Livčāne, producers Inese Boka-Grūbe and Elina Litvinova.

EuroVelo 13 - Section of Latvia
For almost half a century, Europe was forcibly divided into East and West. EuroVelo 13 retraces this ‘Iron Curtain’, a border stretching from the Barents Sea to the Black Sea. Following this route for more than 10,400 km is a living history lesson but also provides a welcome reminder of the peace and reconciliation that have followed the fall of the ‘Curtain’. The following video is about its section in Latvia. For more information visit http://www.eurovelo13.com/countries/latvia
Russian submarines detected near Latvia
Officials with the Latvian National Armed Forces stated that Russian submarines and a Russian warship were detected near the borders of the country. According to Latvia's Defense Ministry, Russian military aircraft and vessels approached the borders of the republic 209 times in 2016 and more than 270 times in 2015. Russia's Ambassador to Latvia has repeatedly stated before that all flights of Russian military aircraft and the movement of ships were carried out in strict accordance with international legal norms. It is worthy of note that Latvia increased the budget for special services by 3 million euros this year. According to human rights activists operating in the Baltic region, most of the funds is spent on efforts against the Russian-speaking population.

12 Strangest Places in Latvia
From the Unique Northern Fronts, to the mysterious Rundale Palace; These are 12 STRANGEST Places in Latvia ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 12. Hospitalis 11.Kemeri Bog 10. Karosta Prison 9. Skrunda-1 8. Mask Tradition Festival, Riga 7.Northern Forts 6. Black Cats of Riga Located in Riga’s old town, you might be curious what the heck a black cat is doing on top of this old looking building! Does this cat have extremely good balance or does someone need to go up there and save him! Turns out it’s not a real cat but a sculpture that seems quite realistic from a distance. Most people believe that a man who once lived here wanted statues of black cats to face towards a guild that he was not accepted into . The wealthy inhabitant of Riga was refused access to the Tradesman guild and felt like having a black cat facing in the direction of the guild’s location would bring it bad luck. He had also placed another black cat facing Riga’s town hall which burnt down during world war II. 5. Ventspils Radio Telescope The Soviet Union had a few tricks up their sleeve when it came to conducting espionage on Western Europe. This radio telescope remained top secret when it was constructed in 1974 out 600 tonnes of material by the Ukrainian Navy. This would be used to pick up radio signals from Nato and for covert eavesdropping operations. This is found in western Latvia, right off the coast of the Baltic Sea. When Latvia gained their independence, the Soviets tried their best to destroy as much of it as possible but Latvian scholars were able to restore much of it so they can use it for studying astronomy. 4. Rundale Palace With some of the chaos that’s happened in Latvia throughout the years, you might not expect to see such a large beautiful palace is this kind of condition! It’s been nicknamed the “Latvian Versailles” and was the masterpiece of the architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli who was also an architect of the winter Palace in St. Petersburg.; It’s situated about 72 kilometers south from the capital of Riga and was finally finished after 8 years of construction in 1768. However, the palace has been transformed into many different things. It was used as a hospital for Napoleon’s army, and as used a s a school in the 1930’s. It suffered serious damage during the Latvian war of Independence in 1919 but was eventually restored in 1972. In modern times, it can even be used to house notable guests to the country of Latvia! 3. Koknese Castle In case you were wondering what a 13th century castle looks like that was completely blown up, check out the ruins of the Koknese castle. This was built as a defensive structure in the 1209 along the Daugava trade route. Many different nations sought to control the fortress including the Polish, Swedish and Russians. Finally the thing was just blown up in 1701 and was never rebuilt. The ruins are now under protection from a local park and people might even find it to be a romantic place to have weddings, strangely enough. 2. Daugavpils Fortress This large fortress complex southern Latvia is located near the border with Lithuania and it occupies 2 square miles of space. The inside of the fort, almost became like it’s own small city with 10 roads, and about 80 buildings. Within the ramparts, this is now basically a pretty well preserved ghost town and it originally constructed to defend against Napoleon’s strong army that was taking over Europe at that time. Construction began and it was indeed successful against Napoleon. It seems like a pretty creepy place if you’re able to come here and do some urban exploring. 1.The House of Blackheads It’s almost impossible to search Riga on the internet without this iconic building showing up. It’s known as the house of blackheads and it was originally constructed in the 14th century by a guild of unmarried German merchants who inhabited the area. The striking facade displays many different styles of architecture. The building was partially destroyed by the germans ironically, during world war II but it was fully rebuilt in 1999. You will be just as impressed by the inside as the outside and it features many medieval treasures! The history of Latvia and it’s mysterious places make it certainly a unique place to explore!

Secure Fence with Russia: Phase one of fence construction along the Latvian/Russian border complete
The construction of a high-security fence along the border of Latvia and Russia is in full swing. According to the country's customs officials, Latvia now has full three kilometers of safety. The fence is equipped with barbed-wire, high-tech cameras and several movement sensors. The project is estimated to cost about 17 million euros. Latvia says the main reason for erecting the fence is to stop the flow of illegal migrants crossing over from Russia.

Mid border guard looks at screen STORYLINE Lithuania is busy beefing up its border guard presence before the enlargement of the the European Union area of borderless travel known as the "Schengen zone on December 21st. A swath of the European Union's easternmost members - nine new countries, most of them ex-Communist states - join the "Schengen zone" this week. While inclusion gives them unprecedented freedom of movement, it also comes with an unprecedented responsibility to protect the 27-nation bloc's easternmost edge. To prepare, those countries - Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary - have spent years beefing up their eastern borders with a range of advanced equipment funded heavily by the EU. They say they're ready to keep the line secure. With the border between Lithuania and Poland opening up, the former Soviet republic has redeployed many of its guards to the border with the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad. The poverty-stricken Russian region wedged between Poland and Lithuania is a source of cheap cigarettes being smuggled into the West. Patrolling the 110-kilometre (68-mile) border that separates Lithuania from Kaliningrad is not easy, even with new state-of-the-art video surveillance equipment. But the main business on this border is cigarette smuggling.

Latvia Travel
Latvia officially the Republic of Latvia (Latvian: Latvijas Republika), is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe, one of the three Baltic states.It is bordered by Estonia to the north, Lithuania to the south, Russia to the east, and Belarus to the southeast, as well as a maritime border to the west alongside Sweden. Latvia has 1,957,200 inhabitants[13] and a territory of 64,589 km2 (24,938 sq mi).[14] The country has a temperate seasonal climate.[15] Latvia is a democratic parliamentary republic established in 1918. The capital city is Riga, the European Capital of Culture 2014. Latvian is the official language. Latvia is a unitary state, divided into 118 administrative divisions, of which 109 are municipalities and 9 are cities.[16] Latvians and Livs are the indigenous people of Latvia.[14] Latvian is an Indo-European language; it and Lithuanian are the only two surviving Baltic languages. Despite foreign rule from the 13th to 20th centuries, the Latvian nation maintained its identity throughout the generations via the language and musical traditions. Latvia and Estonia share a long common history. As a consequence of the Soviet occupation, both countries are home to a large number of ethnic Russians (26.9% in Latvia[17] and 25.5% in Estonia[18]), some of whom are non-citizens. Latvia is historically predominantly Protestant Lutheran, except for the Latgale region in the southeast, which has historically been predominantly Roman Catholic.[19] The Russian population has also brought a significant portion of Eastern Orthodox Christians. The Republic of Latvia was founded on 18 November 1918. However, its de facto independence was interrupted at the outset of World War II. In 1940, the country was forcibly incorporated into the Soviet Union, invaded and occupied by Nazi Germany in 1941, and re-occupied by the Soviets in 1944 to form the Latvian SSR for the next fifty years. The peaceful Singing Revolution, starting in 1987, called for Baltic emancipation of Soviet rule. It ended with the Declaration on the Restoration of Independence of the Republic of Latvia on 4 May 1990, and restoring de facto independence on 21 August 1991.[20] Latvia is a democratic and developed country and member of the European Union, NATO, the Council of Europe, the United Nations, CBSS, the IMF, NB8, NIB, OECD, OSCE, and WTO. For 2014, Latvia was listed 46th on the Human Development Index and as a high income country on 1 July 2014.[21][22] It used the Latvian lats as its currency until it was replaced by the euro on 1 January 2014.[23]
