Only these boxes are new as far as I know.

And I agree about Krka rest area!



Rest area "Krka" among the best in Europe



The rest area “Krka – west” on the highway A1 Zagreb-Split near the Skradin Bridge is the second best European rest area. Against the competition of 101 such areas, two more Croatian facilities have been ranked among the top 11 – “Modruš – west” and “Lički Osik – east”.

The first prize in the quality evaluation project of European rest areas, organized by the European auto-club EuroTest was given to the Austrian rest area "Herzogberg", and the Italian ''Castagnolasca" was ranked as the worst. 18 auto-clubs from 17 countries participated in the Eurotest program, most of them EU member countries, and the evaluation was conducted by an independent agency commissioned by the auto-clubs. The results are disappointing since as many as 17 areas were ranked as very bad, 22 as bad, 22 as acceptable, 29 as good, and only 11 as very good, among which three are in Croatia.

The program is aimed at assessing the quality of the facilities and service at 101 rest areas in the European Union, including the traffic entry, signalisation, hygiene, toilets, state of the walking paths, presence of horticulture, safety, hospitality service in the open areas of the rest-stop.

At the rest areas tested in Croatia, the neatness of the facilities, toilets, children’s playgrounds, accessibility of facilities to the disabled, number and appearance of picnic tables, lighting and other characteristics were assessed as positive.

The awarded rest area “Krka” is located on the left bank of the river Krka, where the bridge connects the two banks, on cliffs offering a view on the Prokljan lake, the magnificent bridge, river Krka and the town of Skradin. The rest area offer numerous parking spaces, a store, exchange office, a self-serve restaurant, a restaurant a la carte, a cafe bar, playground and many other pleasant details. “Krka” is located in the midst of a horticultural surrounding, where, among immortelle, lavender, rosemary and sage, the most prominent is the centenary olive tree. On the other side of the rest area, the ethno-eco souvenir shop is located, offering visitors exclusively domestic home-made products.

In 2007, the rest area “Krka” received recognition for excellence in providing service to motorised tourists.

I love so much to travel along Croatian highways! It was always so exiting this period in the previous years... waiting the holydays, checking the new maps, every year a new section opened, to see how to reach the sea from the new exit...
It's a pity that this f****g world crisis blocked all the works... Now we have to wait more than a year to reach Vrgorac and a couple of year more to be connected to Ploce... Not to speak about reaching Dubrovnik (10 years?) or the Rijeka-Senj-ZutaLokva (maybe my grandchildren will see it).

that gives you time to explore all local roads leading towards dubrovnik. they are all very interesting. I don't think that there's any road that I didn't drive on yet. however now there's a motorway till vrgorac, so that doesn't give you much choice.

exit #26 Bisko. there is some 6-7 km long expressway from motorway to village Čaporice, and in future it should reach Bosnian border. however, Bisko is on yellow background because as soon as you get off the motorway there is also an exit from expressway to Bisko

Hofburg, be careful, the police officers usually stand on the entry line to the OMV in direction Dugopolje, equipped with radar. You have to slow down just after the Klis interchange. By the way, the speed on the Klis-Dugopolje-Dicmo expressway should be 100 or 110 kmh, not 80 kmh!

Ah, I know this part all too well. When is it going to be renovated? And what's the situation regarding A1 construction - have the works resumed yet?

bonus: how it looked 10 years ago. It's not all about motorways, but it shows the route that A1 replaced.

building A1 near otocac. actually I think it's 2003...


nice landscape near plitvice


"famous' viaduct "Stara straza" on Gracac - Knin section


recently renovated road near Knin.


Knin


I think it's Bjelopolje (along Karlovac - Gracac road)


artificial lake Perucko


that year was really hot


sestanovac - makarska


sestanovac - vrgorac section!


tunnel near Kozica


interchange for Sarajevo near Neretva on Jadranska magistrala road


Neretva


Jadranska magistrala before Neum

This looks incredible. Is this tunnel still there, or was that road in the current A1's trail?
