We don't use J. We would write Sofiya, but never Sofija. J in Bulgarian is pronounced the same as Jay, not as York. Ljubljana would be Lyublyana

Does the "J" exist in Cyrillic? I mean, you have я (ya), й (y) and ю (yu), but you wouldn't transliterate that as ja, j and ju.

Not in Bulgarian it doesn't. Macedonia and Serbia have implemented it. For example Skopje would be "Скопje".

The transliteration of "я", "й" and "ю" would be "ya", "y" and "yu", respectively. They even made a special law for this.

they say Nova Gòrica, with C. never heard anyone with K. however, we say nova ghorìca.

I think there used to be only 'Nuova Gorizia' signed by Villesse (A4×RA17), but now I'm not sure any more. Another endonym: Postojna (Postumia).

There're many signs by Trieste with Italian-only names for bilingual villages. I guess you sign it in general, but not on every sign. Btw, the sign "Aosta/Aoste" is the first time I see slash (/) used in Italy, instead of dash (Fiume - Rijeka).

I think that they are on the signs here in the distance but unfortunately they are not readable.

They should've fixed the YU oval next to Szabadka since.
The SLO oval in the Italian sign looks like "fixed" by a traveller, not by the authorities ...

Nice sign in Gibraltar ... there are certainly hardly any more destinations to display there

Shame . They don't seem to be widely seen though.

Another one from Gibraltar

In Slovenia I've only seen one similar (that blue thing in the middle of the arrow for straight forward), but it's not exactly the same:
