15 Most Interesting Borders Across The Globe

These borders are indeed unique and interesting!

The world was naturally made without borders, but men have created boundaries to separate one nation from another. There are many ways to build borders to separate countries – some would let nature take control while others have built heavily-guarded barriers.

In fact, one of the oldest borders in the world today is no other than the Great Wall of China, which was built starting in 221 BC to 1644, to separate China from Mongolia.
