In Monaco, there are references to places in Italy.

And I know of a few references to places that are in a neighbouring country, but for which you are guided through another neighbouring country:
- München on the Swiss A13 (route through Austria)
- Feldkirch on the Swiss A13 (route through Liechtenstein)
- Metz and Brüssel on the German A64 (route through Luxembourg)
- A one-off sign to Dijon / Lyon on the Belgian E25 (route through Luxembourg)
- Antwerpen on the German A4 at Aachen (route through The Netherlands)

Most people wouldn't consider Estonia and Sweden to be neighbouring countries so:

Signs pointing to ferries are an interesting one indeed. In the Dutch ferry port of Hoek van Holland, you will come across a couple of signs to Harwich. I believe that most other ferries to the UK are simply signposted as "England". All are signposted with a ferry symbol though, so strictly speaking, it is not a reference to the other country, but just to the ferry port.

In Poland, I have seen pictures of signs to Helsinki followed by a ferry-symbol. That sign was actually posted well to the South on the E75, which is supposed to take the Gdansk - Helsinki ferry. Problem is that the Helsinki service was suspended ages ago.

Yes they are. Although they use the Dutch translation (Engeland):

This is the weirdiest sign I have ever seen in Central Europe! I know there is Bratislava signed near Zwardoń. It is quite far away from PL too.

Btw, beautifle valley, I have never been there.

There is, in fact, a Rostock-Helsinki ferry. I wonder how that's signposted in Germany.

The Helsinki signs in Gdansk have been already crossed out. The true reason for this was, that the neighbour city of Gdynia introduced a new ferry conection with Helsinki and they wanted to avoid misleading road signs.

The photo that I saw is below, but it turns out that it was a photo from the early 1990s. Chances are that the references to Helsinki have not only been removed from Gdansk, but also from this particular sign 630 kms to the South. In any event, the E75 still runs into a dead end at the port of Gdansk. It was not rerouted to Gdynia.

Where exactly? Is it one of those temporary black-on-yellow signs, like the ones written in Arabic?

As the crow flies. The old sign showed Dubrovnik, Split, Koper, and Trieste (but with road distances). I know there's a sign right before the Albanian-Macedonian border with distances to Skopje, Sofia, Belgrade, Istanbul, and perhaps some other city. Btw, I think "Viene" (for Vienna) is a mistake, because the city is called Vjena in Albanian.

Belgium: Aachen is signed on the E314, but route is via the Netherlands. And the way back: Antwerpen is signed in Germany - again via the Netherlands.




Saudi-Arabia: Oman is via UAE.


Germany from Switserland via Austria:

There are even signs from Netherlands to the Netherlands via Belgian territory (like here: Breda from Zundert is via Belgium

That looks more like those signs they put up at tourist locations like Lands End or on top of Table Mountain with arrows to places on the other side of the world like "Auckland 13670 km", "Beijing 12345 km" than a road sign (numbers made up BTW).

I know this is quite off topic, but there is a railway track from one Slovak town to another Slovak town, but via Hungary.

It is track no. 117 between Kalonda and Veľký Krtíš in Southern Slovakia - http://www.zsr.sk/buxus/images/MapasietZSRvelka.jpg
