A1 A3 - Odmorište Dobra

Date of pics: 18/07/2009 (Saturday)
So you can see a heavy season traffic on A1.



1. The Naplatna postaja Zagreb-Lučko (toll booth).


2. The price list.


3. Just after the toll booth. A litlle jam...


4. The new Naplatna postaja Demerje in the background.


5. Our speed was between 20km/h and 80km/h...


6. Approaching exit 3, Karlovac.


7. The traffic was better from there.


8. Vijadukt Drežnik (2485m).


9. Vijadukt Velika Jelša (207m // 167m).


10. Vijadukt Katušin (161m). Speed limit is 100km/h from here.


11. Approaching Tunel Sveti Marko (280m).


12. On the Most Dobra (546m).


13. The Viajdukt Dobra (376m) in the background.


14. At the Odmorište (rest area) Vukova Gorica.


15.


16. Approaching exit 5, Bosiljevo 1.


17. Speed limit is 100km/h due to the volume of traffic.


18. At the exit.


19. Split is still 326km far away.


20. Approaching exit 6, Bosiljevo 2.


21.


22. Road is widening.


23. The arrows turned upside down.


23. Going left.


24. Right??? But Split is in the other direction!


25. Uhh, now in the good direction.


26.


27. Split is 323km far way.


28. Traffic is lower now.


29.


30. First zeleni most on our way.


31. Approaching Odmorište (rest area) Dobra. Taking a break there.


From the rest area the weather was bad, very bad. Matrix signs sayed speed limit 60km/h and 80km/h but sometimes it was easy to do 100-120km/h except some slowpoke tried to overtake with 70km/h...

Before I ever visited Croatia, I never imagined Croatia the way it is, with its beautiful and high quality roads and motorways, beautiful landscapes, women and ofcourse I never ever imagined it being sooo big! I thought it was never close to as big as Serbia, then I looked and a map and thought to myself "hmmm OK thats interesting!". Croats have everything to be proud of, yes their state is in deep debt but at least you lead good lives in a good infrastructure.

Shpirtkosova, Croatia is less indebted than quite a few other eastern European countries (Latvia, Estonia, Slovenia etc) not to mention those in western Europe, their avarage debt is like 200% of their national GDP's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._external_debt Thank you for your kind comments, though.

==================

I truly enjoyed staring lol at those fabulous road pictures. Thanks a bunch Nikola and Falusi.

I checked the toll of the Gorican (H/Cro border) - Ravca (temporary end of A1) section:

its 567km and 226HRK (32 euro - return trip is 64 euro) for a car which is 0,4HRK/km (6 cent/km), its quite expensive...

btw:
the alignment of the A1 continuation is not too uptodate, it goes through the BIH se corridor on the map:

We even had Czech political campaign going on here...
There were billboards of Topolanek, Gandalovič, Langer and Vodražka from ODS.

^You are in Croatia?

Yes, there are tourist-targeting billboards in foreign languages, mostly in English, some in German, Czech. Radio ads, traffic info and news are broadcasted in more languages during the high season.

Tourists should learn Croatian in the first place so that those billboards are not needed.

You can't expect someone from, say, Germany, Belgium or the UK to learn every local language in Europe before going on vacation. That's why we have English

According to your statement, I should've learned Spanish, French, German, Slovenian, Danish, Czech and Swedish for my vacations in the past two years

At least you could learn some words (that is what I try to do for every country I will visit).

Of course I was joking, since I speak Croatian
