Just for the record:

Kłodzko - Vienna 301 km
Kłodzko - Warsaw 419 km
Kłodzko - PL/LT border 728 km

Ps. Suwałki - Riga 376 km

Vienna is signed in Poland, but not in Slovenia.

You can't go overland from Korea to China and there's something else between India and Turkey.

The number of closed border crossings on AH1 is not limited to the PRK; the route is as much of an idealistic project as the Panamericana is elsewhere. These signs should be considered as an expression of that idealism, nothing more. This might also be the reason why the ROK signposts AH1 fairly prominently. In a way, it opens open land borders with the PRK...

For what it's worth, less than 50% of the countries crossed by AH1 is on this sign close to Seoul. I drove part of Korean Route 1 and did not see any other of these large signs.

Nearly a year later with my reply, but yes you can. These New Zealand people travelled by motorbike from China to South Korea through North Korea.

I don't think it is that stupid. I know a lot of Croats from the Varaždin and Čakovec area who work in Graz and drive back home every weekend. Some even go back home every day - that's a 90 minute drive without traffic, in each direction (!).

In my opinion, Graz should be signposted from Zagreb on motorway A2 wherever it says Maribor as well. The other way around, I think it would be very good to improve signage on the Austrian A9 saying "MARIBOR - LJUBLJANA - ZAGREB" instead of just "Slovenia" or even "Spielfeld". Although I have to admit, this has improved over the years. Now a lot of signs feature "Maribor/Marburg" in Slovenian and German. At least they should add distances of Ljubljana and Zagreb on the signs south of Graz West interchange. For people like me who have to drive on this section frequently for business reasons it doesn't matter, but it would be useful bespecially for tourists.

And please don't get me wrong here, Maribor should definitely remain on all the signs as an important city in-between, but some people - again tourists mainly - just don't really know all the cities on their way to their final destination and would have it easier if the signs made more sense.

That would be a lot more than 87 miles, let alone 87 km.

And Croats don't know about Maribor? It would be more than enough to signpost "Maribor (SLO) (A)".

Actually, I think it does make a lot of sense to signpost the distance to Graz on the Croatian A2. Maribor isn't really much of a destination for most traffic on the A2, while Graz is a major motorway junction. I think it would also make sense to signpost Zagreb from Graz - or at the very least, Gruskovje. Incidentally, that 70's sign on DK7 in Warsaw is curious - shouldn't it be Budapeszt? And when did Poland start using the country ovals on signs?

Absolutely - it's a border crossing, and it makes sense to at least give the distance. It would warn sheep of how far they have to go before they hit the usual mess, at least! But I've always wondered why European countries don't have long-distance signage on roads. I'm not saying after every junction, but every 50km or so, it would be nice to have a sign telling you how far to major destinations - for example, in Austria - signs telling you how far to Belgrade and Dubrovnik.
