Picture 20 Beautiful Border Between Countries From Around The world

Since the beginning of civilization humans never could escape the temptation to claim ownership and distinguish themselves from the others around. Homes and private property are those claims at a small scale whereas countries and continents are the claims at a large scale. However, the relentlessness of their pursuit in making these claims sometimes takes a funny turn. And the result is the creation of unusual borders between countries often for equally unusual reasons.

1 Alaska and Siberia

Diomede Islands – The pair of islands located in Bering Strait between Alaska and Siberia.

The larger island called Big Diomede belongs to Russia and the smaller island called Little Diomede belongs to America. As the International Date Line passes in between them the Big Diomede is almost a day ahead of the Little Diomede. This gave them the nicknames Tomorrow Island and Yesterday Island respectively.

Another notable border is between Sweden and Finland. Finland was part of the Russian Empire during that time. They built a lighthouse on an Island called Market which is part of Sweden resulting in a queer S-shaped border.
