Btw. we say Sarajewo
So I made a mix of Hungarian and Polish of Sarajevo?!

Yeah I know that Czechs and Slovaks dont use SZ, Polish and Hungarians do, but Slovaks and Czechs use W instead of V and Y instead of I sometimes, so we in Bosnia find it cool, cuz we dont use those words. I actually do hate when spoiled Bosnian teens use "W" in facebook instead of "V" like "Wolim teeeeee" instead of "Volim te".

Nevertheless, normal Polish entrance signs (the previous example from Katowice is unofficial) looks like this:


White sign means the beginning of built-up area. Usually it is placed together with the sign with place name, but sometimes the green sign is placed at the administrative border and the built-up area begins further, where there are actually some buildings alongside the road.

Yep.

That's a copy and paste of the French city signs' design it seems. Only the font is different.

Do all signs in Bulgaria use both scripts on their signage or do you have any that are just in Cyrillic?

New signs have to be with both scripts. Since not all of the signs are changed tough, we still have a lot of signs, written only in Cyrillic (mainly inside cities and off the main roads).

That is correct, as this is a sign used for marking entrance to any town even very small village.

Also, those types of signs were also used for cities before and they meant beginning of the city AND built up area - I believe they are no longer used in favour of a green sign + built up area sign combo... nonetheless, this is a picture from a video I took in about 2004 I believe.



Here is how it looks like because quality of the other video is horrible nonetheless I wanted to show you how it looked in real life.

ALL Dutch town-limit signs: http://borden.plaatsengids.nl/
(Site in Dutch; simply navigate to provinces and choose town name)

Normal Dutch sign (up: new; down: old). The sign indicates a speed limit 50 km/h zone.


When the town is part of a greater municipality. Also speed limit 50.

The Swifterbant example indicates also how the end of a town is being signed: with a red dash trough the sign.

Sign for a neighbourhood. This white sign has no effect on the speed limit.

Using W is also quite popular here, mostly among teenagers.. widim to celkem pozitiwně.

official:


Most of the towns use also "Welcome" signs, some also signs to show their partner cities - but there are no regulations how they should look...

Old border



This one is on a road between Delft and Rotterdam, in a divided village Zweth/De Zweth (an okd name meaning border) now it's still the limit between Midden Delfland and Rotterdam municipalities.

It was my first trip out of London back to 2004, just after I moved to England.

The Salzburg sign looks very much non-standard. At least it doesn't use the usual font used for Austrian road signs.

A couple more from Lithuania

Part of the sign to the left is missing in the photo. The full name of that town is "Naujieji Zadvarninkai".... try pronouncing that (even for Lithuanians it's not that easy)
