Ok, this is certainly the weirdest destination-sign I've ever seen: pointing to a city, for which you must use a ferry, and the distance counts in the ferry distance. I believe you have signs for Helsinki as well then, if coming from Riga.

Well, I'm not sure about the 800 km's... it was just a +/- random number, but I think I've distances around that in France.

Milan about 1500km on the A6? How can that be, if the distance between Paris and Milan is under 1000km??

But that's just a touristic sign, not a real sign, and definatly not a road signs, so it doesn't really qualify for this.

If I remember correctly there is a sign showing Paris on the A10 in Italy near the french border. Can anyone confirm this?

Well, that one in Siberia you showed looks like the one in the canary islands. Just for tourist(well, not touristic, if it's in Siberia ) purposes or whatever.... clearly not the real thing.

I can also paint a sign in my street showing the distance to Singapore and put it into a wooden telephone pole.

Just distances to closer cities like Malaga, Valencia, etc.
There is a sign near Marbella on AP-7 indicating the distance to Barcelona.

Also, in Spain, on radial highways near Madrid you have signs indicating the distance to the cities you can go using that highway. For example, on A-1: Burgos, Santander, Logroño, Bilbao, Vitoria, San Sebastián and Irún.

It's not joke/tourist/whatever false thing, it's on a road on Siberia

Milan about 1500km on the A6? How can that be, if the distance between Paris and Milan is under 1,000km??
.
It will maybe around 1,000 km and not 1,500 but with motorway Milan is at more than 1,000 km of Paris

Still, I don't consider it to be eligible for this.
Though the sign Verso just posted(from that same website) would be! And although not 7200km, 1815km is still quite far away.

Btw: Quite a nice landscape in southern(I guess, from the landscape and the fact that the transsiberian railway passes nearby that it's southern) siberia.

It's even more than 1,000 miles! I agree, that sign for Moscow (7,200 km) isn't very useful (it's interesting though), but to point to Chita, if standing in Khabarovsk, is the only logical thing.

From www.viamichelin.com:
Paris-Milan: Distance: 854km including 816km on motorways

Anyway, if there are signs near Paris with the distance to Milan that would still be a great distance.

Well, than that signs near Marbella must state a distance of a little bit more than 1000km's to Barcelona. We should see a photo of that one!

I guess the best you can get would be a little bit over 600 km's for Barcelona and La Coruña.

In California, the longest useful posted distances I have seen were 420 miles (670 km) from Sacramento to LA and 400 miles (640 km) from Redding, CA to Portland, OR.

I think it would be quite convenient if upon leaving San Diego they posted distances to some major cities that I-5 runs through (e.g. LA, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle). From San Diego to Seattle it would be impressive 2000 km, and yet it would not be useless because many tourists indeed cross the entire West Coast on I-5 (some non-tourists do too).

this is one of the longest in Croatia. actually, there should be few more on the same motorway few exits before, or even on border crossing.

If I'm not wrong, leaving Madrid on the A-1 you can see a sign with the distance to Paris, 1300 km aproximately. I think it's the farthest pleace I've seen on a official sign -at least in Spain-.
