The red house was the original "casello" (a toll house)

My favorite are the Polish "chipsy" and the English "pierogies"

My family knows that "pierogi" is plural. But we also say "k'bahssie" (kielbasa).

now we officially use German square size.

one more "Italian" thing: this obsolete sign is still present at every motorway entrance.


I had never seen any German square size signs in Croatia. In Croatia they looks like this Serbian one:

Probably not the smallest reason was to become different from Serbia.

Christ...
no, it was not to become different from other countries, or particulary from Serbia, but it was part of new design for the group of informational signs recently introduced, which are all square shaped now, not rectangular anymore.


@Uppsala
you can still find those old of course. new are introduced on newly built sections, or at those where change was required. we are not that fast in cahnging the signs as Slovenia is for instance (they have really rapidly changed their expressway and tunnel signs)

I really don't know what was wrong with the previous tunnel signs. The new signs are copied from Italy (same as the new expressway signs).

Meanwhile, this might get a little bit OOT...

Here in Indonesia, we still use NO signs like old Britain

GMSV screencaps on Cipali expressway


(Expressways only for motor vehicles 4 wheeled and above)


(Do not tow vehicles on expressway) <= Authorised towing service operated by expressway operating company allowed


(Do not take passengers on open vehicles)





there's also a 40kmh speed limit sign (which apply all up until merge with main carriageway; note that almost all newer service/expressway-to-road interchange are of the trumpet type) before the standard motorway symbol appeared

obviously tunnels are not considered the dangerous places in Slovenia anymore
