List Rules Vote up the most interesting photographs of international borders around the world.

When we think of international borders, many of us may picture huge road stops lined with officials waiting to dutifully check the passports of each and every person who dares venture into their homeland. When you really think about it however, not every square inch of the division between two countries can be lined with border crossings or guys in uniform watching over them. Here you'll get a unique look at what borders look like around the world via this series of photographs showing everything from natural land borders to mere roads that divide some countries from their neighbors.

As it turns out, just about anything can mark a border between two countries, whether it be a river that happens to run between the two or a fence that locals on each side sometimes use to play volleyball. So come on in and get a load of international borders around the world in a way you've never seen them before. 

Whether you're looking for a single travel spot that allows you to stand at the intersection of three different countries at once or you're just looking to broaden your horizons a bit, you won't be disappointed!
