Other than the language difference, this landmark is the only indication that this island is actually two nations. The two nations were formed in 1648 and the monument built in 1948 celebrating 300 years of peace between the two nations.


At the Border Obelisk, visitors can walk around the monuments which marks the official border that splits the two countries, as well as several national flags.
