Those names are stupid. It should be like Ljubljana-west, east or similar. Nowhere in the world are interchanges signed with unimportant names.
Try to find Malence on a map. Try to find Gabrk on the map

The Netherlands also has many interchanges named and signed after unimportant places. Some interchanges are named after former farms in the area. On the other hand, traffic congestion and traffic information makes these villages (or hamlets or farms) well-known around the country. Almost every Dutch has heard of Everdingen (pop. 1295) or Muiderberg (pop. 3266) or Burgerveen (pop. 374)

In Bosnia-H. we have interchanges named after the unimportant villages Butila and Mahovljani.

Torano (Rieti) is home of just 700 people and it's not even a municipality but it's well known for the A24-A25 junction.

Border formalities were quick and easy. The only thing the lady told me, was to open the back window, to be able to see inside, because back and rear windows are dark tinted.
