the-town-of-baarle-nassau-is-split-between-belgium
The town of Baarle-Nassau is split between Belgium and the Netherlands.  The border isn’t a straight line, so bits of each country are scattered throughout the town, and some of the buildings are even divided between the two countries. Dutch restaurants close earlier, so when closing time comes, the tables are all moved to the Belgian side.  (, )
