It probably wasn't so complex challenge to find a right border crossing back then, because of the limited number of them.
It is still common practise in, say, Belgium to direct towards "Nederlande" or in France towards "Belgique"

If it's 22 km to Florina and in the same direction, what other border crossing could it be? I don't see any other, at least not important.

Macedonia and Serbia has really good legible road signs. Especially, I like the one at Niš interchange with Thessaloniki destination Shame, that there is no oval attached.



By the way, Belgrade is spelled Belgrad in Macedonian language?

It's Белград (Belgrad) but on the new road-signs it can be found only as Belgrade. The older ones have "Belgrad" in latin script and even "Beograd"

Whole former Yugoslavia still uses the same font type, plus Romania, Bulgaria, Belgium and Luxembourg.

I'd put Leskovac instead of Thessaloniki on those signs.

Yeah it would be much better. Even though this sign look new, I assume it is the heritage from old Yugoslav times, isn't it?

In Bulgaria, there are some signs to neighboring cities but in general most signs point to the border crossing town/village (often no mention of what country that leads to). This is a remnant of totalitarian times when you generally weren't allowed to leave the country.

Longest-distance non-motorway sign for Ljubljana in Hungary?
Right after the intersection roundabout of main roads 7 and 76. Lake Balaton in the background.

There's a sign with 319 km to Ljubljana on the M86 expressway (and of course 447 km on the M7 motorway).
