What you have used is called falsification in science. It means, no matter how many proofs I put forward to support my statement, If you find any to reject it, it will be rejected. It is okay.

But my statement was not "All out of cities has exact one official name", so your evidence is invalid.

Let me put it clearly and ask you a question: Do you really expect all drivers (except fans of this forum, except linguists or geography experts) to know all city names in all official languages of adjacent countries?

Even in maps and atlases there are names written in domestic language (except some cases like capitals where are put altogether with English one)

I am pretty curious how would you feel in my country, if there were put destinations like
- Rakúsko
- Miškovec,
- Ráb
- Viedeň
- Päťkostolie
- Viedenské Nové Mesto
- Štajerský Hradec
- etc.

You could know it, but I am pretty sure 99 % of foreign drivers would not. And stating Brussels as the general example (since the country is quite specific and the city different from most of the cities) is ridiculous.

In Sweden they do. And correspondingly in Denmark they signpost Malmř, not Malmö.

By the way, the most important foreign destination signposted in Finland is St. Petersburg; it is the key destination on 7/E18 east of Kotka. The Finnish name is Pietari, and this name is always used in signs - it is often (but not always) accompanied by St. Petersburg.

St. Petersburg could be Swedish or English. However Swedish isn't normally used in Kotka or beyond, and English is not official at all. The name cannot be Russian: apart from the alphabet, the Russian spelling would lack an "s".

Brussels has two official names: Bruxelles (French) and Brussel (Dutch).

Rakusko = Oesterreich
Vieden = Wien
Viedenske Nove Mesto = Wiener Neustadt
but Štajersky Hradec = Graz

C-14 regional road (partially 2x2) in Catalonia, Spain starts in Salou (km 0) in the coast and arrives till Pyrenees quite near to the border with Andorra.

In a great part of the road, the distance to Andorra appears and signals are always pointing Andorra as direction.

In this distance signal, La Selva and Valls are near the road, Montblanc is the next "node" and Andorra is forward away (189 km from there)

Well, turning around and taking N-420 into Aragon one can reach Andorra too . Now seriously, you can't imagine how many Andorran cars I saw last time I was on C-14. Perhaps there were almost half of all registered vehicles...

They should sign Ariza (Spain) there, it's on the same route.

In Ukraine it is simply awful look here:
www.google.com.ua/maps/@49.87363,23.905574,3a,15y,302.37h,94.74t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sNb1lJblQDla0fXn6wZfEkw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
It would be nice to sign it Rzeszow. Polish side does it with Lviv. And we sign Przemysl Peremyshl. Awful

Zheshuv? Probably even Poles don't know what that is.

That is more or less how you pronounce Rzeszów.

Still, such signage doesn't make any sense, since you won't find "Zheshuv" on any map.

Well, I guess they really do know. Maybe illiterate Azarov the ex-PM warned Poles about the transliteration rules in Ukraine put by ex-education minister Tabachnyk, huh?
