SiCG? I have never seen that before... I thought it was SCG for a while, between YU and SRB.

Yeah, obviously, but country codes cannot have lowercase letters or more than 3 letters.

There are two exceptions though - Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) (not Malta (M)) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) (North Korea) , although I've also seen KP (probably for 'Korea Pyongyang'); I think there's no official oval code for North Korea actually. Nice pics, Timon!

B9 Rovinj - HR/SLO border

The way back, after having stayed in Rovinj for a few hours.

1. 10% hill (still in Rovinj)



2. Leaving Rovinj/Rovigno.



3. The road to the B9.



4. We follow Poreč.



5. Entering B9. It's still 2×2 here...



6. ... but it narrows to 2×1 very quickly afterwards.



7.



8. On a viaduct.



9. Exit Medaki ahead.



10. Nice cutting again



11.



12. There is a new gas station ahead. We finished our Kuna's over there



13. Weird that they don't sign Koper/Capodistria yet.



14. Stuck behind a camper.



15.



16. We have to pay again.



17. 2+1 after the tollbooth.



18. Approaching the Mirna bridge.



19. Beautiful



20.



21. Entering the bridge.



22. On the bridge.



23. Finally, Koper



24. Nice village. Is that Brtonigla?



25. A few caravans.



26. We stayed behind this Dutch red car until the border.



27. Koper 29 km. No bilingual signage over here, btw.



28. Exit Umag, this is where the B9 begins now.



29. So that's also where we leave the B9.



30.



31. Leaving the B9.



32. Overhead signs.



33. Turning left for Koper.



34. We filled up and had coffee here earlier that day.



35.



36. Entering the border valley.



That's it for Croatia, hope you liked it

Nonsense. "Serbia and Montenegro" was formed already in 2003. In 2006 Montenegro already declared independence. Nice pics, Timon.

that section was built in 1999, so that sign probably dates from that year. where did you get 2006?

I am sure that there was no "Beograd" to be found on the signs here in 1999. I have been here in 2001 (from Zagreb to Lipovac and them to Osijek), and there was no indication for Serbia at all.
As far as I know there are pictures in the internet where there are new signs with "Beograd" AND an YU-oval, where YU was later replaces with SiCG and now with SRB.

Very good photostory, Timon, and yes, the nice village looks like Brtonigla.

you are wrong. signs with Beograd appeared at 1999 when new signage was introduced, the one at the photo is an example.

Perhaps, but not on the A3. Which didn't exist in 2000, the A3 was ending somewhere east of Slavonski Brod. From Zupanja to Lipovac there was just the old road to the border. There was only signage to Lipovac, and at the last junction before the border there was not place stated at all in direction Serbia.

I even found an article which describes the return of Beograd on Croatian signage - and it is from 2003!

A3 was ending in Oprisavci till 1999, when it was extended to Velika Kopanica, and that section allready had new signalization.

If so, why have seen only Lipovac in 2000 all the way from Zagreb to the border? (see also the article I posted above).

because new signalization was put on that small new part between Oprisavci and Velika Kopanica (practicly, only at exit Velika Kopanica because there are no other exits at that section), and rest of motorway still had old signs (they started to change them in 2001 while they were renovating whole old part of motorway)
