Smile Croatia, Slovenia & Austria by bogdymol

Hello my friends!

I've just returned from a long roadtrip and I wanted to share what I've seen with you. My trip lasted for only 5 days, but I passed through 5 countries (Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria & Italy) and I did a total number of 2200 km.

In this thread I will publish pictures from:
PS: maybe you are wondering why the title says Croatia, Slovenia & Austria by bogdymol and not remembering about Hungary and Italy. This is because Hungary was more or less just for transit (with just a 30 minutes stop at Lake Balaton) and in Italy I haven't been in any touristic area, but I just wanted to drive on one of the most beautiful motorways in the world.

First road-pics are posted on the International border crossings and [H] Hungarian Motorways • Magyar Autópályák threads. Here is just a preview of what you will find if you go there:

Nădlac border crossing:



Tisa bridge near Szeged:



Traffic on M0 - Budapest bypass:







PS: all the road pictures that I will post from this roadtrip were taken by the best girlfriend in the world, which understands my passion for roads

First stop: Balaton lake (sometimes called the Hungarian Sea).

Road near in Siófok:



The lake:





Ducks on the lake:







As you can see, the water wasn't deep at all. I've seen people very far from the shore standing in knee-high water. Also, it wasn't very cold

Entering Zagreb:

Nice park:





Big Croatian flag on a building:

I've spent only few hours in Zagreb so I've seen just a little part of the city. It is nice, better than what I was expecting from a non-EU member. It has nice parks and the streets looked clean and recently renovated. I also like your trams because they are new, silent, and seemed to have a high frequency (I've even seen a tram-traffic-jam in Ban Josip Jelačić Square because of too many trams comming from all directions). Although I was travelling with my girlfriend I noticed the Croatian girls. Who ever says that Romanian girls are the prettiest in the world will change his oppinion after just a few hours spent in Zagreb.

I wasn't in Zagreb, but I noticed the exact same think after walking through Belgrade. My girlfriend had the same opinion .

I don't know if we can generalise this to all former-Yugoslavia because next day I went to Ljubljana, Slovenia and instead of a lot of girls I've noticed a lot of foreign tourists (situation similar with Prague). But maybe this happened because I was in Zagreb during the afternoon-evening and in Ljubljana in the morning (teens often sleep in the morning ).
