well, one thing you get used to in eastern europe is having you suspension realigned twice a year before changing tires

Don't generalize; it's a unique road and I posted it for fun. I've never had to realign suspension.


And stop talking about wars finally [exclamation mark]

dont tell me what to do

and the fact you didnt have to realign your suspension probably means you didnt drive a lot, i drive at least 50.000 kms a year which would not be a problem on -say- swiss roads

The war thing obviously wasn't directed at you. In any case:

He diffenetly hasn't been in Slovenia. Because Slovenian's highways have the smoothest asphalt in Europe. Maybe just becase most of them are new, but it's fact that they're better than the one in Austria and Swiss.

There isn't much news about motorway construction in Slovenia, is there? No progress on the links to Croatia or the missing link near Radovljica?

my car (and before it was my dad's), is 12 years old and has 290.000km, driven mostly in slovenia, never had any problems with suspension.

about normal roads quality I would say, that they are solid, but there are some bad sections. Too bad we don't have any reports from normal roads here.

Slovenian motorway quality is generally impeccable though.

Actually even our thread is more or less dead. For example on A2 they fully opened new exit Naklo and also opened reconstructed interchange with expressway to Ljubelj pass (Klagenfurt/A). Missing link nearby is under construction and proceeding well (one of three new viaducts is almost finished), all works should be finished before summer 2011.

All this I learned about 3 hours ago, when I was travelling there. I didn't found any news about all these in our thread.

There is not a single country that can compare to Bulgaria in that case ( I include our highways in that group ). We have the worst roads in Europe and that isn't going to change soon.

so long as we're talking about secondary and tertiary roads, the disgusting thing is, at least here in hungary, is that the amount of money they overtax motorists with (~2 bn eur more tax than money spent on roads) would be enough to rebuild the WHOLE network in 4 years!!!

I am sorry for being off-topic, but can someone please explain the history or reason behind this complicated border arrangement between Croatia and Slovenia here:

That border isn't drawn correctly, it gets even more complicated than that. The border is actually drawn, but it's partly drawn as a railway. So, this is the correct border:



That Croatian corridor seems to be infinitely narrow though. Geopedia shows as if there's a Croatian exclave "in" Slovenia.

As for your question, I don't know why the border is so complicated. I've found something about it here, but it's in Slovenian, and it's long and quite complicated. It looks like there used to be even more exclaves, but except the only still-existing one they eventually merged with the surrounding country, which explains the current complicated situation. (the last two sentences on page 75 in PDF (or page 68 in the original document))

Unfortunately I cannot read Slovenian or Croatian. Anyway, I can only assume those kinds of border arrangements were created when ownership of individual parcels were taken into consideration. The most beautiful example is in the Netherlands, zoom in to Baarle-Nassau, where there is said to be at least one Belgian enclave within a Dutch enclave within a Belgian enclave in the Netherlands.

I stop being off-topic now.
