86 kilometers of the former 3/E12 in Finland. The road was built in 1958-1961. It got desperately congested, and was replaced by a motorway . The motorway Helsinki-Hämeenlinna was complete in 1992. The old road was downgraded to a regional road, and it got the number 130. Nowadays, it is a nice cruising route.

Can anybody help with exact track of M2 in former Yugoslavia? Croatia seems to be pretty clear, as current D8 replaced former number. Bosnia&Herzegovina and Montenegro still use old road numbering, so there is no problem here (?). In Serbia and Kosovo it's not hard to chase old road, either. But Macedonia and Slovenia aren't clear to me.

According to my map of Yugoslavia:

Border crossing Škofije/Rabuiese (SLO-I)-Koper-Izola-Pula-Labin-Rijeka-Split-Neum-Dubrovnik-Petrovac-Podgorica (Titograd)-Bijelo Polje-Rožaje-Ribariće-Pristina-Skopje-Kumanovo-Kriva Palanka-border crossing Deve Bair/Gyueshevo (MK-BG)

I read that some communist countries considered ownership of detailed maps as a suspicious situation unless justified. This was the case in Albania and Romania. Wasn't it the case in Yugoslavia as well?

Well... The attitude to maps was rather neurotic. After the WW II, the Soviet Union wanted Finland to send them all accurate maps covering those areas lost to the Soviet Union. All maps having the scale of 1:500000 or bigger were considered as accurate. The Finnish authorities saw this order ridiculous but they had to follow it. Finland sent across the border a trainful of maps, 16 million sheets.

Of course, all copies were not delivered. They were classified until the early 1980's.

I think touristic maps with only roads and cities were legal. I have some touristic maps from the 1970s of Yugoslavia, Poland and Romania. I mean maps where the whole country is shown in a single A1 or A2-sized sheet, with no details.
I like to keep old maps, they have some historic value.

No (at least not in 1980s). I have maps of different parts of Slovenia with scale as low as 1:20,000, but I also used to have a map of Kranj, which must've been 1:5,000 or so. The oldest map I have is a map of Istria from 1982. All maps are of great quality and made in Ljubljana.

surely Yugoslavia was spared that kind of totalitarian insanity, after all, the gastarbeiter needed to get through the place and spend many DM on benzina and food
