It was driving pretty slow, I passed it like a rocket.

Some remarks:
- Motorways were very empty going south when I was there. I drove 150 km/h and it was very monotone
- The landscapes are very beautiful for a motorway, I wished in some spots to have a parking spot to take some pictures with the sea and the mountains.
- Quality is very good, signing is also good.

I will post later pictures from Dubrovnik region...

@cinxxx: Fantastic pictures.

By the way, I really like that border crossing at Vitaljina. Beautiful landscape at the southernmost tip of Croatia and low traffic. The other one on the D8 can be busy in summer.

Slightly off topic but related to your pictures: Did you stop here? https://goo.gl/maps/tbCix
Former military base, still in state ownership, was restricted area until 2002, now open to the public. Quite interesting relic of the Yugoslav era, you can still see Communist paintings on the walls of some buildings.

Apart from that, the view from the very southernmost tip of the peninsula is nice - on a clear day, you can see all of Lovćen (if there are no clouds) and some parts of Montenegro.

You cannot go there by car, but on foot only, and have to pay admission for Prevlaka. I was there a year ago, but I didn't go to the end of Prevlaka, just until the gate.

I thought of driving until there, although I didn't know the story. But since the weather was crap, I drove directly to Kotor (my plan was to make a quick stop in Herceg Novi too).
The weather got better in the afternoon.

I explored there 3 years ago, and yes, it's a very interesting place. From speaking to the person working at the entry to Prevlaka, they have plans to do quite a lot with the area, but they can't do anything until the final settlement with Montenegro over the Prevlaka area.

It's worth noting that it was also the site of a UN base as part of the effort to demilitarise Prevlaka. I'm shaky on the exact details, but as I understand it - if you control Prevlaka, then you control access to Kotor Bay. Not a big deal now, but there was a major Yugoslav navy base in Tivat.

Yes, it's a beautiful view from there.

I would have went by cable car too, but in May it's only open until 20:00. And we wanted to catch the sunset and also see the city by night from up there. So the only choice was either personal car or taxi

3 km long section of D1 opens tomorrow in full expressway profile (divided directions) between Klis ans Split (A1 connector). remains only 1,5 km of that section to be completed in the autumn.
