In the Netherlands they usually say 5 destinations per sign is the max, especially on high-speed roads.

You think Croatians would put "HR" oval on their own sign? (it's in Slovenia)

Still this Slovenian sign looks like more, because it's ordened in a row. Those Czech signs are very chaotic though.

Distance signs are mainly placed for information purposes. If you can't read them in full, you're not missing an exit or so. On directional signage like those Czech signs, not being able to read in full is trickier. 11 focals on one directional sign is an absolute shocker. The way those eleven focals are placed on the sign makes it even worse.

In tunisia, on the road through lybia and eventually to cairo (&beyond) - 2591 (km)

Lol @ Split by Terezino Polje. And anyway, I remember a sign with 603 km to Dubrovnik (or sth like that) on D8 right after the exit for Krk.

2,591 km to Cairo.

actually, you can find Split along D5. i saw it also near Garešnica (at D45) and probably it could be near Virovitica, Veliki Zdenci and Okučani. but it is kinda lol however, D5/D45 are used by many hungarian tourists in the summer who are avoiding busy A4 and border crossing Goričan. so it is kinda usefull.

there was Dubrovnik near Rijeka, i remember it, but i doubt if it is still there.

On a second thought, it isn't so crazy, but only if you go over Banja Luka (which would be more than enough on signs, but Split is a Croatian destination). But from Terezino Polje to Split is only 450 km via Banja Luka. 580 km can only be via Zagreb, in which case I think it's unnecessary to sign Split, when you have Zagreb on your way. Just when you're already close to Zagreb. We should sign Koper in Lendava - more than 300 km.

possible thing is that those tourists which i see ther are from counties Baranya, Tolna and Bács-Kiskun because better detouring for busy Goričan would be Nagykanizsa - Iharosberény - Csurgó - border crossing Berzence/Gola and further Koprivnica - Vrbovec - Zagreb...

I can do one better: 12 destinations, 7 road numbers and strictly there should have been two country codes, CZ and SK, but the 'artist' ran out of room. Here is one from Vienna that was posted in the Austrian thread earlier:



Not to be imitated.

On E75 near Leskovac, Serbia, there is sign pointing Athens at 890km. Later, before Vranje there is 780 km to Athens sign. I will make pictures next time.
