The article deals with the phenomenon of border in the travelogue Berlin – Moscow. Journey on foot (2003) by the German author Wolfgang Büscher. The main idea is that border crossing not only constitutes a plot-forming element of Büscher’s text describing the narrator crossing the state borders, but also determines other text levels. The travelogue relativizes the border between «one’s own» and «foreign», between different cultures, different types of travel, and also between reality and fantasy.
