That means I have been there a few times in my life.

I am aslways traveling in the middle of the night. For example, I am leaving Bratislava at 11:00 PM and at a morning about 6/7 AM I am sleeping on some carpark on the Istrian coast.

I usualy have some brakes..

I don't like night driving. I want to see all while traveling. I passed complete Slovenia 10 days ago by night, and i didn't saw anything. That is so sad ...

There are two links about Maribor's eastern highway and turning Slivnica-Draženci. Theards are already closed. There are many photos through the building. Koments are in Slovenian language.

Some photos were already taken from those theards and posted here in this theard.

toll free transit (Graz - Zagreb)

good day collegues,

my plan is to go from Graz (A) to Zagreb (HR)
just to avoid vignette fee I am planning to use alternative roads (on Slovenian part of the route).

my questions are:

is it possible ?
if so, which route ?

I believe the usual route is;

* Highway 437 from the Austrian border to Pesnica
* Highway H2 through Maribor
* Highway 1 from Maribor to Ptuj
* Highway 2 through Ptuj
* Highway 9 from Ptuj to the Croatian border

However, since both the Maribor bypass and the A4 are opened to traffic, I'd rather pay the vignette, you can drive through Slovenia in maybe 40 minutes. It's an expensive 40 minutes, but better than taking country roads. Back in the days where only the Sentilj - Maribor section was a motorway, it was profitable to take back-roads all the way, but nowadays... I don't know.

Avoiding the Slovenian vignette

This statement is erratic.
Highway H2 through Maribor is assigned as "Hitra cesta", and it is vignette obligatory as such.

If you arrive from Graz, there will be a minor problem.
To enter the city from north, when you are at the Pesnica roundabout, you have to turn to the H2 and then, after some 100 or 200 meters, leave the H2 on the first exit, to proceed to the centre. As far as I know, Slovenian vignette patrols usually don't check this short part of the H2. And if you have Austrian vignette, don't forget to leave the Phyrnautobahn BEFORE the border, because Slovenians occasionally check the vignette immediately after the border.

However, I agree with Chris and warmly recommend the Slovenian vignette.
I already have both Austrian and Slovenian yearly vignette, and now the travel time from Zagreb (City Center West) to Graz (Shopping centre Seiersberg) is about 1h45mns, including the Cro/Slo border.

many people use next solution to bypass Maribor: take exit #222 Vogau, then Sankt Veit am Vogau - Rabenhof - Eichfeld - Murreck - Trate - Lenart - Trnovska Vas - Ptuj.

btw, Slovenian subforum is a wrong place to ask that try at Croatian

here is the best link with photos and maps (although i think one map is outdated): http://bezvinjete.blogspot.com

Hi guys, I am just wondering if A2 is already completed..

I have never been driving on A2 because if I am going to Istrija I am using - Austrian A2 and Slovenian A1.

if I am going southern - Hungarian M7 and Croatian A4, A7

Why of course not? It`s just 15 km to complete a motorway and I am expected there are not so hard conditions (relief) to build up this section. Is there any political reason?

A2 Pluska - Hrastje, between Ljubljana and Zagreb, construction update - 23. 5. 2010:

Almost everything is now asphalted, so opening of this motorway in the end of June should not be quiestion. Two of three exits wont be finished yet at that time as there also won't be possible to refill your gas tank because rest place won't be finished.(almost 70 km long "hole" between Ljubljana and Otočec)

1 - Beginning of section at Pluska, traffic from existing motorway hoing toward old expressway is already redirected through new junction Trebnje-west (looking toward Ljubljana)


2 - toward Zagreb


3 - closing to tunnel Leščevje (380 m)


4 - mounting equipment in tunnel is not proceeding at high speed


5 - on other site of the tunnel


6 - a machine for installing guard rail


7 - here it is practically finished


8 - overpass for pedestrians, still missing a fence


9 - installing prefabricated antinoise barriers, on the left there are already planted new plants


10 - from the same point toward Ljubljana


11 - continuing over fresh laid asphalt


12 - plateau of new rest place, which won't be yet opened in next months


13 - viaduct Ponikve, installing antinoise barriers and hydroisolation.


14 - old vs. new


15 - from the side


16 - a forest of pillars


17 - asphalt also on the other side of the viaduct

18 - only existing non asphalted pavement, but not for long


19 - exit Trebnje-east


20 - from other side


21 - ascending toward Novo mesto


22 - toward Ljubljana


23 - on top of the hill


24 - hydroisolation is being installed on other viaduct too


25 - descent before Mirna Peč exit, on right a plateau for new industrial zone. In front you can see instalment for a montage passage between two halves of the motorway


26 - exit Mirna Peč


27 - further from exit it is practically finished, first signs are mounted too


28 - into the next valley


29 - old overpass is counting its last days, however there is still traffic flowing under it.


30 - in about last half of km motorway is finished, even traffic is already being rerouted onto new motorway


31 - horizontal signalisation


32 - end of section at Hrastje


33 - bonus - can you see anything weird on the picture?
