I remember Helsinki signed on PL/CZ crossing in Cieszyn back in 90s. Maybe somebody has a photo?

yes but instead of kilometers there was only drawn a ferry (if I remember right)
I have a question too, is it possible that somewhere between Warszawa and Siedlce on DK2 there was signed distance to Moscow? I remember something like that when I was a child or maybe I've drunk wòdka instead of milk

Funny that Polish uses the letter "s" to write the same sound as Hungarian "sz"; and also exactly the opposite

^ OTOH, there's no word with "sz" in English or Slovenian.

Swiss mileage signs are quite strange. They are not ordered by distance but the exit where to leave the current autobahn for a certain city.

Example:
https://www.google.ch/maps/@47.20822...Uywg!2e0?hl=en

It's an autobahn to Zurich and Basel but an exit to Lucerne will be earlier than Zurich. Not very intuitional. Or is it standard?

Edit:
I actually like the Polish model where they separate the cities along the autobahn from the other cities... plus adding the road number. (like the last picture above)

For that matter, what's the logic behind listing the most distant cities first?

It's the same in Slovenia and I don't find it strange at all. Certainly better than to put together a bunch of towns in different directions. But there could be a line drawn between Zürich and Luzern (we don't use them here either).

Probably to display it as a key city and terminus of motorway...

If you put an arrow beside it, the most distant city will be at the end of the arrow, near the horizon, while closer cities are shown as closer.
In Holland, we recently changed from closest city up to closest city down.

I understand that that's the logic with overhead signs (I don't actually agree with it), but it just seems more natural to me that on a roadside marker giving distances to upcoming cities, you'd read from top to bottom.

Albany 80
Montreal 300
Buffalo 360

Not worth arguing about it, though.

I dont realy understand why they sign Frankfurt there
If you sign Frankfurt you also could sign a lot of cities on that place. It would be even more logic to sign Cologne there cause the A4 goes to Cologne and not Frankfurt
