Bratyslawa & Wieden! Good thing Bratislava is somewhat intelligible, or else I would think Wieden is the Polish border village (if I didn't look at the distances)!

I don't understand it. I tried to visit legendary Monachium, but i couldn't find it. I always arrived in München. Something went wrong or what?

Anyway: Danube = Dunaj

And something special for Patrick:
Akwizgran, Ratyzbona, Brunszwik, Lipsk, Pasawa, Kolonia

Well, the main problem is just that. The older (pre-early-80s) system made more sense, if you ask me. Still, that's no reason to discard the system as a whole, and many, even longer, E numbered links, actually do make sense - E5, E15, E35, E30, E40, E50 don't need much adjustment at all, E45, E55, E60, E80 wouldn't need that many changes either. Even the E65 will make reasonable sense come the new Polish stretches, and if a north-south motorway link through Albania were to be included as a part of that E road, it would make close to perfect sense.

True, but that has nothing to do with size. The places signed in Frisian are in one of the four municipalities that use Frisian as THE official language. Each town in Friesland has only one official name. The municipality decides whether that's the Frisian or the Dutch name. Only four rural municipalities have chosen to use the Frisian names. That's why only these small towns are signed in Frisian.

But this is starting to get quite off topic...

It'd be nice if all the main routes were E-routes and that the E-routes were the main ones used by nations. In an ever more integrated European continent, it makes sense that the main motorways connecting major cities throughout the continent have the same name.

That some countries sign the E-routes only sometimes/really sporadically just makes it really confusing. Some standardization would be really nice.

But I remember seeing a pic about a sign somewhere near the Romanian border indicating Bucuresti which can be even more. If I find pics I'll post them.

These are which I meant. That one with Bucuresti 630km must be the longest distance indicated in Hungary. It is more than the length of the country from West to East

In the Netherlands we don't really have long distance signs. We have those ones with Luxembourg, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and London, but those only appear once. As far as I know the longest distance shown over here (and which is indicated every few km) is the indication of Maastricht near Amsterdam on the A2, showing a distance of 205 km.

On the German A2, Amsterdam is signed over more than 300 km though.

You're in Downtown Seattle, and you see a sign for Portland, Oregon.

Yes, but that's not within the Netherlands
