History shows us just how easily national borders can change, but we still like to think that they are permanent fixtures. These photos of different national borders around the world show you how nations like to fence - or not fence - off their turf.

Other borders are delineated by natural markers like rivers, or by man-made markers, like guard posts and demilitarized zones.
