Border Checks of Czech Republic are History

Starting today, the Czech Republic and eight other states of the EU entered the Schengen space. 2000 km of Czech border zone are, from today, without custom officers. The main celebrations are planned for today, at the Czech-Poland-German border.

The idea of Schengen space is based on countries entering a union, where it is not necessary to go through border checks; free movement of goods, persons, services and capital. As the Czech Rep. is surrounded only by states in the zone, the borders are (at least for the next few years) going to lie out.

The physical borders are going through changes; the crossing barriers are going to disappear, the police is going to almost leave the place, and the ‘line’ will became cross-able almost anywhere. If you are interested in more information, you can continue here.
