Solution before 1st July was very price friendly for us Slovenians and our neighbours, which often use Slovenian motorway network. Now it is rip off for all of us.

Main routes in Slovenia are motorways, that's a punch towards everyone pretty much, any official complaints to transport authorities ?

Won't help. Because of pressure from European Union. Which was pressured by our neighbours. Neighbours didn't understand that it was very cheap for them to buy a yearly vignette for only 55 euros, for example, for someone who travel from Zagreb to Graz/Klagenfurt on a monthly basis.

55 EUR was cheap indeed, now it's 95 EUR. On top of that, fuel is now more expensive than in Austria, Hungary and Croatia.

A2 Predor Karavanke-Ljubljana

1. Leaving the Karawankentunnel.



2. Small bit with 2×1.



3. First exit for Jesenice.



4. Tollstation and borderstation on the other side.



5.



6. Six destinations. Bohinj was beautiful btw



7. I should remove maps from the dashboard before making pics



8. Viaduct.



9. And another one.



10. Some rain, just before we left the motorway at exit 3 (Lesce/Bled).



11. One week later. We left our car at Rudno Polje for one day, near a construction site. When we came back it was completely covered in dust. The windshield only got dirtier



12. A small jam caused by roadworks.



13. Well, we just left. I didn't go to the casino, btw



14. Sign seen through a very dirty window.



15.



16. Tollstation for trucks ahead. Still the other traffic has to slow down to 40 (nobody actually does )



17. Beautiful

20. Šentvid tunnel



21.



That's it, hope you liked it

My dad almost crahed us into another truck, because he was distracted by this super-weird-mega-size sign.

Btw, when you will finally remove that burned bus at Nanos pay toll? It's like staying there for three weeks now.

And tolls for trucks are extremelly expensive in Slovenia. Going through your country from Hungary to Italy, that's 300km, is worth 80€ in one direction, while in Italy from Monfalcone to Milano-Est pay toll, that's 450km, we payed 51.20€. The hell you thinking?

Yes, I did. The rainy pics are from the 9th, I went to Ljubljana on the 11th (by train), and the other pics are from the 17th, when I was on my way to the coast

Just A2 --> A1, what's wrong with that? I didn't use H3.
map

-edit- I see what you mean now. The description of the last pic isn't completely clear. I didn't leave the A2 there, at the next interchange

This is where we leave the A2. I guess you meant us, forumers. I thought you left the A2 and went on H3, because the picture is perfect for such a conclusion.

just to make an image to Chris:

Croatian: sigurnosni razmak, pravilo 2 sekunde, test za 500 metara

crucial words are not very similar imo (the part after "2" is very similar even in Dutch).

let me test my poor knowledge of Czech:

Bezpečnostný odstup, pravidlo 2 sekund, test za 500 metru
Well in croatian you can say
Slovenian: varnostna razdalja, pravilo 2 sekund, test čez 500 metrov
Croatian: sigurnosni razmak, pravilo 2 sekunde, test za 500 metara
Croatian: sigurnosna razdaljina, pravilo 2 sekunde, test za 500 metara
than it is easier

A1 Ljubljana - Koper

The A1 was full of tourists (lots and lots of Dutch), but the motorway itself is beautiful. The pics were taken on a friday, July the 16th. It was very hot weather, with temperatures ranging from 30 degrees (Ljubljana) to 37 degrees (Ankaran). Luckily a heavy storm the following morning cooled it all down a bit.

The pictures:

1. This is where we leave the A2



2. A1



3. Koper 97 km.



4. Beautiful motorway, rusty crashbarriers.



5. Tollstation for trucks ahead.



6. There it is.



7.



8. Climbing lane.



9.



10. Koper 78 km.



11.



12.



13. Dutchies everywhere. In fact, there were three Dutch cars behind us



14. Almost missed it



15. Not so long ago a car probably crashed into this sign.



16. Some mountains ahead.



17.



18. Not much traffic here.



19. Exit to Nova Gorica closed.



20. Road works.



21. Small jam on the other side. There was only one lane available on the other side, uphill



22. Tourists



23. Time to clean the windshield



24. 7 destinations



25. Those blue overhead signs.



26. Stupid dirt



27. Koper 24 km.



28. Tunnel ahead.



29. Tunnel entrance. Is this the Kastelec or the Dekani tunnel?



30. Dutch tourists again



31. The famous viaduct.



32. We're following Ankaran/Ancarano.



33. Trieste? Turn off or stay on. It's your choice



That's it. Hope you liked it

Stupid sign. If you were interested in the old road for Trieste, I guess you wouldn't be on expressway/motorway in the first place. And where did Ankaran disappear?

Kastelec.

PS: do you ever clean your windshield?

Normally we do clean the windshield when gassing up. The first time we forgot to do it, the second time there was no need for it because it was raining. The third time we gassed up was after this. Furthermore, we don't need to gas up often, since we can drive 850 km with a full tank without running on reserves

Did you know, that nowadays every car has water sprinklers beside wipers built in?

The part reachable by wipers looks cleaner than the rest of the windshield, but it can't always clean everything, especially if it dries.
