Do you know there is a border between 2 countries that is 6 846 kms in length?
The international border between the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation is the longest continuous international border in the world, and the second longest by total length.
The border assumed its modern shape in 1930, and became an international border upon the dissolution of the USSR in 1991.
Roads and railways were not built with this border in mind, so when the border became international in 1991, for example one branch of the Trans-Siberian Railway was interrupted by two border crossings at Petropavl. In 2017, Russia and Kazakhstan agreed to permit transit (corridor) trains without border control.
