Warn before crossing of the border in the border crossing Ukrainian Slovak Użghorod – Vysne Nemecke. Most of you telling me the passage in Ubli, Unfortunately I got to Użghorodu after dusk and I didn't want to go back after the holes to Ubli. The passage I arrived on Tuesday at noon. 18.00, I went to 21.30. Przekracaliśmy border in early February 2015 y., on Tuesday. When I approached the booth I have shown and Ukrainian passports (2 people) a Ukrainian guard (short stature in a typical Cap uszance) asked if anything liquid. When I answered, that only equipment because we are back with the Carpathians, it immediately without having to look up to the car came to us on the belt side of the box (channel). In front of us steel Slovaks, spare parts, They przejeżdżali as well, Nobody was led per channel. It seems to me, most in excess of this limit in the passport leaves a sum so cross with no comments. I had no intention of not give even 5 hrywien. After entering the channel continues to Ukrainian guard peeked not even to the boot just started ostukiwać them and knock. Very surprised them, that returning from Ukraine I have only 20 litres of petrol. In the end, looked into the boot – they found the tam snowshoes, chains on the wheels, shovel, Hiking backpacks etc. Still do not believe our assurances of, that we were tourists in the mountains. I had asked a question – How is it you do not trade in? And we actually even had neither 1 a cigarette or grams of vodka. In the end, faced that will disassemble the front cover door. Of course not I gave them możłiwości stripping to me not crushed only latch undressed right sheathing and saw that it is empty! There are no cigarettes, There is vodka! I do not know how much it took to check but they gave peace clearly surprised. Whether in the end came to them that we came to Ukraine as a tourist? In the meantime, I told them, that if I wanted to trade it from the place of residence I 60 km to the border of Ukraine and not 300 whether 400 km to Użghorodu. After checking my dad pretty much yelled at them and asked: happy? have you found something? In response he heard: Hush, Hush, just follow the, just follow the. Rapidly checked us passports outside the train and we left from the Ukrainian. None of us thought it was, that on the Slovak side – European country a little better we treated. But before we drove on the wrong belt being first on the passage. Of course, none of the Slovaks refused to let us. Before us were Slovaks, The Czechs, Nice and friendly they were odprawiani. When our car she came several times to our spoglądała passports given the Slovak number plates and into the Interior of the car, seeing powywracane by Ukrainians luggage. Barely and I came down to guard Slovak it immediately at our car turned up further 3 The Slovaks! Previously to any Słowaka or Czech one not coming out! I tried to keep calm but the entrance Guard Slovak began to yell us – open car, Open the hood! He said more, but not all understand why I answered – I don't understand. When he started yelling again and we started screaming at him saying – We may not understand! I opened all the doors of the car, and krzyknałęm to the rest of the Slovaks – seek! They told us to pull out backpacks and extract their contents. Previously, of course, we've talked, that we are back from the mountains, What can see seeing equipment and our car mired. When I took out the first map of the National Park Użańskiego this question was asked – Hoverla? I answered – Pikuj. From that moment the guard changed facial, told us to pack backpacks, shut the car and depart. So look for our first and last on this border crossing. If I knew, that waste here 3,5 hours, treat us as smugglers that I'd rather go back to Krościenka k. Ustrzyk Legs even going after these holes. Krościenko overcame in the first page of the border without comments – 10 minutes, guardian of the Ukrainian was sympathetic and nice. In General, we met in Ukraine nice and helpful people. The guards on the użockiej wished us a pleasant journey. At the end we just bastards on both sides of the border. It is possible that if we were to put passports hryvnia and they were carrying cigarettes and vodka that was all ok.
