Goričan-Letenye border crossing

The busiest border crossing between Hungary and Croatia. There are actually two border crossings few kilometers away from each other, the main one situated on the highway, and one for truck and local traffic. The highway splits just 1 kilometer before the border into two, one towards Croatia and one towards Slovenia and it seems good if you take a ride with a car going to Slovenia and leaving you at the point where highway splits. But crossing the main border crossing by walking is not allowed, and if you try it, in the best case you'll be directed to the local one where traffic is very low, so take only rides towards Croatia.

If you are by accident stuck at the smaller, local border crossing on your way to Croatia (e.g. if your driver goes to Slovenia, and leaves you at the on-ramp), just cross the local border and hitchhike (or walk) for about 1-2km upstream, and you'll be situated at the Croatian A4. Immediately, there will be a toll station, where traffic has to stop. You can perfectly hitchhike in front of it. Be aware of the mosquitos.
