A Look At 21 International Borders Around The World. International borders separate one country from another. History, current events, politics and demographics shape what takes place at these borders. While borders seem like permanent fixtures they have revolved throughout time, reminding us that the only constant is change. Depending on how friendly bordering nations are borders drastically change. For instance, it’s easy to miss borders located between friendly nations located in the European Union’s Schengen zone, which are simply marked by a sign or line in the road. Other borders are impossible to miss, for instance the border between the US and Mexico is guarded by armed guards, long lines and clearly marked signs warning against illegally crossing from one side to the other.
