Has anyone checked this map???!!!! is completely erroneous, those latitudes are all bended!!!

In that map all the eastern part of Europe is pushed southward while the western northward.

For example Greece Italy and Spain share common latitudes in real life while in this map they don't as in real life.

Take for example Madrid that in this map is more to the north than Rome or Thessaloniki btw it shares latitude with Sofia

Not to mention that Galicia shares latitudes with....Switzerland and Wien!!!!!!

cheers to the person who made this funny map!

I even ust say that these motorways don´t look like normal roads and motorways, they look like nextgeneration monorail rails on Mars or some toher planet, I have never seen such motorways, really.

Yes you are right, i just guess that it isn't an entrance, i have no idea what it is though.

Btw as you can obviously notice, even those sections are not completely finished, they need to plant trees and i am quite sure that the parallel roads and entrances aren't finished yet, they actually opened it a few months before they should, due to the elections.

This is only emergency niche before tunnel. Look at other pictures of tunnel entrances.

From those pictures above it looks like the (in)famous Struma Motorway will be getting a worthy follow-up after the border!

^ You're the one to say that.


Btw, how many of you people are interested in photos of roads under construction? Cause I'm not. Of course you have all the right to post such photos, I'm just asking.
