I saw they just installed a sign with Vienna in Arad, Romania. I should take a picture of it soon...

Thanks in advance. Even if another city in RO - Oradea - is located on the same E60-route as Vienna, the relation Wien - Budapest - Szeged - Arad keeps its international importance as well.....

And it is quite similar distance Wien - Arad comparing with Arad - Bucuresti.

Abbazia (Opatija, Croatia) signed in Italy. Funnily enough, I'm not aware of any sign for Opatija in Slovenia.

Well, really interesting. There must be only historical reason. In Slovenia the sign "Reka-Rijeka" is certainly enough.

Even appears to be an official sign, not a fun/joke one.
Pakistani and German cities on the same sign

Notice how all three endpoints (Karachi, Bandar Abbas, and Hamburg) are ports.

Probably for truckers that sign is useful, to know the route to follow. In Hamburg is not rare to see trucks coming from that part of the world (mainly Kyrgyzstan)

If you need a sign for Hamburg in Pakistan, because you run the risk of getting lost otherwise, then you're not a very good trucker.

I never saw any truck from Central Asia in Europe, but many from Russia (including Novosibirsk) and Turkey, few from Georgia and even one from Iran and Iraq!

BTW, we have this on Padova ringroad:

In the thread of distant plates, you can see some trucks from Kyrgyzstan spotted in Hamburg by a forumer. To see them in Italy is difficult, it's not an usual route for them as it is for iranian trucks. For example in Cascina Gobba rest area on Tangenziale Est Milano you can see iranian trucks every week-end. On the route for Hamburg and Rotterdam instead is more probably to spot trucks from Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.

Yes. It was put when the highway opened few years ago, I don't know if it's still there.
