"Keine Grenzen - Żadnych granic" (English translation: "No Borders") was the Polish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, performed in German, Polish and Russian by Ich Troje.

The song is a dramatic ballad, in which the singers express their desire to be astronauts, gazing down from space at the earth. As well as the beauty of the spectacle, they sing that from that distance it is impossible to see borders, flags and warfare. The theme of the need for peace is underscored by the multilingual lyrics, in which Polish is performed alongside the languages of two neighbouring states which have historically fought with Poland. (The song received the maximum 12 points from Germany but none from Russia.)

The song was performed twentieth on the night (following France's Louisa Baïleche with "Monts et merveilles" and preceding Latvia's F.L.Y. with "Hello From Mars"). At the close of voting, it had received 90 points, placing 7th in a field of 26 - Poland's most successful result since their second-place on debut in 1994 with "To nie ja!".

It was succeeded as Polish representative at the 2004 Contest by Blue Café with "Love Song".
