Other than that, Rabujez is in Italy, and should thus be translated (Rabuiese) and added the "I" oval. Or better yet, remove it from the sign.

Yeah, we used the wipers and automotive antifreeze to clean that part of the window. When we tried this on the first day it didn't really work, so we had dirty windows all the way.

Automotive antifreeze is not quite an excellent cleaning solution.

Try with some window cleaning liquid.

Road 111 Koper-Portorož (-Piran)

1. View to Koper.



2. Road works. There was some congestion here, because the road narrows from 2×2 to 2×1 at this point. Furthermore, these pics have been taken on a saturday, so everyone was on their way to the beach in Izola and Portorož.



3. 2×1 along the coast. Nice bike path on the right



4.



5.



6. Beautiful



7. The Italian coast.



8. Near Izola.



9.



10. Izola bypass is mostly 2×2.



11.



12. In the end the road narrows to 2×1: congestion.



13. I know this isn't the 111, but it's a nice road (Portorož-Piran)



14.



That's it, hope you liked it

I think this is G111 too (Strunjan isn't between Portorož and Piran). Nice pics! There's also a cool video of this road.

That's right. I thought I had pictures of the road between Piran and Portorož, but it seems that I haven't. Cool video btw. Luckily Izola is still there

H5 Ankaran-Koper

While we were staying in Ankaran my parents and I decided we wanted to see Croatia, so we went to Rovinj. The shortest route from Ankaran to Rovinj is via H5 and road 11 before continuing on the A9 in Croatia.

Few pics of the H5:

1. Though it seems like the H5 ends here, it still runs to the end of the motorway. The last part is called both H5 and A1. After this interchange A1 is mostly gone from the signs, you only see H5.



2. Merging with the A1 from Ljubljana.



3.



4. Everything in Italian and Slovene, Pula even in three languages. Bertoki 1 km



5. Close to the exit for Pula.



A bit short, but at least the windshield wasn't that dirty

It's a bit messy, but I think it's officially only H5. It used to be A1 when the H5 designation didn't exist yet, although it's just a motorroad. I have no idea why there's 1 km of motorway in the interchange with A1, which is also way too winding to be able to drive 130 km/h there. I think the speed is also limited to 80 km/h.

11 Koper-Croatian border

This road is the main road from Koper to Istria, and a lot of caravans and Dutchies can be seen here. This road is quite curvy, since it's a hilly area, but still there are some 2+1 sections, which make it more comfortable. There is one alternative for this road, which is the 111 from Koper to Portorož, which continues to the border.

1. We've just left the A1/H5 and we're heading south, out of Koper. I like these horizontal traffic lights. Some also have a small LED screen on that counts down and shows how long the light will stay red/green.



2. Between the yellow priority road square and the red light this LED screen counts down to zero.



3. The road.



4. 2+1



5. End of 2+1.



6. 2+1 ends on the other side.



7. This is a beautiful hilly area.



8.



9. We're in the border valley now.



10. The last village before the border (Dragonja).



11. Customs in 500 meters.



That's it, hope you liked it

Look for the differences


1) There was hardly anoyone on the road when I drove there.
2) When you were there, no fruit was sold anymore at this sign
3) The gate on the right is closed on your photo

It took us about 5 minutes to get from this point to the point where we left the Croatian customs They didn't even touch our passports.

You don't need your passport in Croatia. ID cards are also accepted for EU citizens.

So do I since I also travel outside the EU and I like stamps and visa. Unfortunately I didn't get any Croatian last May. Fortunately I did when I entered Croatia by plane last September

I also wanted a stamp, but since they didn't check us at all I decided to leave it. So far I only have a US stamp and a Canadian stamp in my passport.

One of our forumers risked his live to get those excellent photos of almost open Maribor bypass.

Stupid, if you ask me, but photos really have an unique perspective.

@Verso: Testing road markings on the second pic? It's not a 23 or sth...
