Hi all, last month I made some shots during my trip from Pula to Plitvicka jezera (wonderful place!!). This was my first time to use Croatian highway network. The highways are nice - smooth pavement, mostly with comfortable gradients and radius. What I realy like in Croatia is the price of LPG: I did 1 km for less than EUR 0,03. Nice. And I did not need to use my map at all as the signs are very clear. Unfortunately I must say that there are some "minuses" also:
- very low density of gas stations
- it is almost impossible to overtake a truck on A8/A9 due to bad visibility and turnings
- people are using full lights!!!
- a lot of useless and senseless speed limits (e.g.: 100 kmph=> after 100m 60 kmph => after 100m 30 kmph without any reason => after 30m (!) 60 kmph
- the same with speed limits on road No. 1 from Karlovac to Plitvicka
- there is a totaly stupid alternate road in Rijeka that took me 3/4h to go through and I had to pay toll again!!!

Pula => Rijeka









I found the "2.0 V6" label quite funny


Rijeka => Zagreb

















Pula => Slovenia

you are mostly right about those things. about full lights - you probably had a bad day with them speed limits -> true. gas stations - at motorways it is still quite low (about each 40-50 km, except in Istria, where is reallybad situation), but gas stations network at motorways is being proceeded into reality.

about this alternate road - which exactly do you mean? if you wanted to save € 0,80 for A7, then i know which one and it is not worth to use

oh, it was because of road works at A7 (Rijeka bypass). yes, it was absolute crap with that bypassing, you were not the only tourist who got lost (nor domestic people were sure which roads to use). you went even more north because toll station is near Rupa

After few minutes driving following the directions, I realised why all the native drivers took a different way! Well I did not get lost, just angry because the bypass is so "zigzaged" and long!

actually, thos local roads aroun Rijeka are just like that. you saw configuration of terrain there. there is simply no space for rosad. you could go through city centre, but they suggest to avoid it because of congestion. actually, if yll transit traffic would go through centre, than they would block whole city

oh, that one. our crappy minister is talking something about quitting an idea of A7 as A1-A6 connector. that could take with itself wide RI bypass, too. instead of that, he wants to build railway bypass of some stupid village that lies at railroad with extremely low traffic. we must wait. i hope both A7 and bypass are going to be built soon because we really need them!
