No. That sticker means you can go this road to Gdańsk, and then take a ferry to Helsinki. Distance would be pretty useless.

From Gdansk you can also take the ferry to Karlskrona or Nynäshamn.

I have travelled from Karlskrona to Gdansk in october a very shaky experience.

Another 15km away that is 639km the record-distance sign for sweden ?

About the same distance as Amsterdam-Munchen or Amsterdam-Bern

(Om nån känner till svenskt vägmärke som visar längre lägg gärna upp bild. Borde finnas längs Rv45 eller E4 norr om Sundsvall.)

Popular sign outside city-goverment building

The farest city in the sign, Ushuaia, is the most southern city in Argentina, but the city claims the title of the most southern city in the world.
Actually a small city in Chile called Puerto Williams is few quilometers more southern than them.

A typical heading south sign.

Sweet! I will have to keep an eye out for it. I will be passing through there this week, hopefully it will be on 95S before I hit 85 going back to ATL. If I see it I will try to stop and get a photo for the forum.

If I remember correctly from driving through about 8 years ago, it's a little north of Downtown.

That sign of "Barstow CA 4110 kilometres" has already been posted here. I believe in the other terminus of I-40 (In Barstow, obviously) there's a sign saying "Wilmington NC 2554 miles (4110 km)".

I just love this Thread,i find it when i was looking for sign pictures in the Net.The longest distance i ever saw on a highway sign was in a motorcycle-travel magazine,on the pakistani karakorum highway.Listed were many cities but Bejing(Peking) had the longest distance,i think it was over 5.000km.
I found it in the Net

I'm seeing a sign with 656 km or something like that in Haparanda on Google Street View. But Google has put images of a nearby parking lot instead of the E4 road

Trondheim 922km:
http://maps.google.no/?ie=UTF8&ll=68...12,195,,1,7.52

Further north there are many old distance signs with distances to Narvik only, these should/are being replaced by signs where both Trondheim and Narvik is marked.

Since I have no luck embedding... I give you the linky instead. 618 KM to Prince George, via Hwy 5 and 16.

http://maps.google.ca/maps?client=fi...,48.19,,2,0.43

Same destination via HWY 1 and 97:

http://maps.google.ca/maps?client=fi...13.13,,2,-0.56

A little bit shorter, but both routes take about the same amount of time.
