The world’s most unusual borders, from the German town not in the EU to Spain’s mini Gibraltars | Daily Mail Online

Standby for a geography lesson with a difference – because this is geography at its quirkiest.

New book The Atlas of Unusual Borders (Collins), by Serbian Zoran Nikolic, is a truly eye-opening compendium of ‘intriguing boundaries, territories and geographical curiosities’. And a timely book given the growing interest in international boundary issues following Brexit.

Here we present a selection of the tome’s astonishing revelations – and the maps that illustrate them – including the German town that’s not in the EU, the French-Swiss border that passes through the double bed in a honeymoon suite and Spain’s controversial territories in Morocco across the water from Gibraltar – one of which has the world’s shortest land border.We also bring tidings of the town split in two by the U.S–Canada border and the capital city that’s a ghost town.

Very funny stuff.

How messy human “planners” can be and you’d think it would be easy to fix!

Laugh!
