Thank you for the information about stamps - as far as I can gather, it shouldn't be a problem to get them on request

Now, I have one last request - and I wonder if someone could help me?

I'd like to visit Zeljava Air Base, but I've been told that you need to get permission from the border guards at the Licko Petrovo border crossing first. I tried calling them, but they didn't have any English speakers available. Would someone from here be kind enough to call them and ask as to the current situation with regards to visiting Zeljava? I still don't know if I'm supposed to go to them and ask permission on the day, or whether I should apply in advance, or what.

To make it clear, I only want to visit the runways within Croatian territory.

There are contact details here - Tel. 053/655-340

Thank you ever so much for any help!

@Eulanthe, I could search a bit about security issues while visiting Željava so I hope I will find some useful info.

looks like Bistrica ob Sotli is your favourite border crossing and you occasionally fly from Brnik

Many thanks

I've found a lot of references to "tell the border guards" and "hide from the border guards", but very little in the way of real information about the place. I know on the BiH side, there's a guard hut close to the border where you can inform them about your plans, but I don't think there's anything comparable on the Croatian side.

(and no, I'm not going inside the mountain!)

Well done. Slovenians have been guarding the exterial Schengen-frontier....The Schengen-entering of Croatia will turn the situation back before June 1991.

Sometimes the stamps quality is poor due to lack of the ink. Unfortunatelly the Hungarian stamps are partially "hidden". To receive the Austrian check-out-stamp in Neunagelberg after the Czech Republic entered EU (=internal EU-border), it was unusual..... I got last stamp at internal EU-border crossing in 2004. It is also similar on condition of EU-citizen-passport holder in U.K.

H stamps have poor quality. A and SI are more or less always visible.
wanna see the poor quality? notice on my first photo in that post there is also Italian stamp from port of Ancona. cannot see it? it is between 3 Slovenian stamps, perpendicular with them.
or even better - entering Italy in Ancona - second photo, just under Croatian stamp you will note some red stains - that's Italian stamp (they have obviously ran out of ink).

about Neunagelberg - Austrian officers were also quite bored so they were checking us.

My Turkish entry stamp is even worse. At exit a police officer couldn't find it, so I had to tell her the page of the passport (I actually prepared my passport on that page, but she thought it was a random page). She laughed when she finally saw it.

Oh, and my Turkish stamp from 1999 was 2 days behind real date.

Maybe back to motorway issue and Hrvatska. Some videos from the Czech Republic available on Youtube showing to route to Croation. At least - the next summer season - is not so far away....some of them might be the valuable travel promotion for coming summer....

When are you coming to visit Željava AB?
Go here (http://zeljava-lybi.com/forum/index.php) and ask there what you should do. Visiting border crossing Ličko Petrovo Selo and informing Croatian police is enough for you (if you are coming from CRO side). And do not cross border (there is usual barricades on the site) because that is illegal everywhere

[QUOTE=hofburg;102279012]nice videos! summer souvenirs

2012 3rd video, why would anyone go from Bratislava to Zagreb via Budapest

Right question. No doubts that the background of this "Hungarian routes" from Czech Republic is the quite high price of Slovenian motorway label (it is also psychological factor). And the risk of traffic jams at Macelj/Gruškovlje border crossing during peak season. The label price is the issue for the short connection MMP Šentilj(A) -MMP Gruškovlje (HR).

It is clear that the route via Budapest is definitely not the shortest way. There is the option to shorten the route a bit (M1/Kisbér - M7/Székesfehérvár). Or the national road Nr.86.hu/E65 (no need to purchase Hungarian e-Matrica) is well-known. It is clearly shorter. However, you see, some people do not want to leave the motorway (especially at nights), they are afraid of the heavy truck traffic, wildlifes and speed limit there (in past few years there were more sections under reconstruction too). At the end of this route there are two main options: HU/HR border crossing in Letenye/Goričan or HU/SLO border crossing Redicz/Dolga Vas. In this case it might be not so easy to avoid the tolled expressway (bypass of Lendava).....
