I just love how this photo puts Triglav into perspective as one of the prominent points in the Alps. It gives you a good sense of elevation too.

No, Triglav is the highest one (2.864 m). It is located in the Alps.

F I N A L L Y - 2,5 years later than planned

I was really waiting for this, I probably experienced here more (in number, not duration) traffic jams than on all other Slovenian motorways together.

I drove all A2 Ljubljana - Karavanke today. they should repave (urgently) Vrba - Karavanke, there was light rain, but water on the road. and that section is so narrow... needs widening. H4, also without shoulders, is much better than that A2 section.

Motorway Vrhnika-Postojna when it was opened in 1972:

I suppose that second picture was taken just before Logatec exit.

And you should build a great monument to late Mr. Stane Kavčič, the politician who made this motorway possible.

I think that in those times the motorway should have been built to Razdrto, but the former federal state moved away the funds, so they have enough money to reach Postojna.

Anyway, congratulations for finishing the Slovenian motorway cross.

Interesting. Original sign plates on the first Croatian motorway Zagreb-Karlovac had the same font.

EDIT: From the second picture, it seems also that the Logatec interchange (and Unec interchange too) wasn't opened at the same time with the motorway, but later. (Same story in Croatia: Jastrebarsko interchange was opened two or three years after the motorway Zagreb-Karlovac.)

In those times, direction from Koper to Šentilj was called "Slovenika" and direction from Jesenice to Obrežje "Ilirika".

It is still called slovenika and ilirika, just not on the maps. I think first photo is facing Ljubljana , between Verd and Logatec. Kavcic got his statue few years ago.

I think that first photo does not belong to Vrhnika-Postojna section but to the Postojna-Razdrto, opened 4 years later.
I could be wrong, but I can't remember that overpass on the first picture being between Vrhnika and Postojna.

Also it looks like that dashed middle line had different (shorter) arrangement from today's 6-12-6 m - overall with sign style motorway looks more Italian than today. Destination signage looks almost exact copy of Italian.
