I always take the last exit before the border (don't feel like going across), so you mean those 0.75 km?

No problem.

Exactly. Why don't you save them for when I won't have anything more to post? Save them for hard times.

Yeah, but it was off-motorway, so there is a lot more to see

You can download them here, here and here on the Dutch motorway forum.

The reason why i don't take pics of Dutch Motorways (Autosnelwegen) is that the entire network has almost been on the pic by our fellow forumers Frits and others. The majority of those pics can be found on www.roadpics.net, now only compromising the Netherlands, but Belgium and Luxemburg will be covered soon.

The Littoral Highway (A1)

We're going to the Littoral (Primorska)! This highway connects Ljubljana with the Slovenian coast of the Adriatic Sea. In order to reach it, you have to go through the Inner Carniola (Notranjska), mostly karstic region, that's why it's so sparsely populated. Its length is 95 km (59 mi), and is motorway/freeway all the way. More than half of it was built in the 1970s, and the rest mostly in the last decade. I took the photos yesterday.

I started in the southwestern corner of the Ljubljana Ring, at interchange Kozarje, between the A2 (western Ljubljana bypass) and A1/A2 (southern Ljubljana bypass), turning right, onto the A1 motorway (also E61, E70 and Corridor V).


The last exit, free of charge.


Ljubljana west. This toll booth will soon be renamed into "Log". The Littoral Highway is the only one in Slovenia with closed pay system, so you only take ticket here.


Right after this exit starts the oldest Slovenian motorway (Vrhnika-Postojna; 30 km), put in traffic in 1972 (back then also the first motorway in Yugoslavia).




The first tunnel.








Let's pee.


Thanks to Marché for their lovely rest areas.


23 km to Postojna and the cave.






I'm driving more than 50 km/h.




It's a bad picture, but anyway, this rest area is called Ravbarkomanda. =)




6 km to the Postojna Cave.


Under the Littoral railway.


Important exit.








Exit for Electronic Toll Collection users only.




Interchange Nanos (previously called Razdrto).






Interchange Gabrk. The V. Corridor continues right, but also straight forward to Koper (both are main lines). We're continuing straight forward and leaving the E61 and E70.




Exit for stud farm with famous Lipizzaner horses in Lipica (pronounced Lipizza) and caves protected by UNESCO.








We're crossing the E61 (it has a little strange route).


The highway costs 4.4 €.








If your breaks stop working, don't worry.








Viaduct Črni Kal (1,061 m).


The viaduct.

Photo: DARS







Radar again.




My tunnel pictures are getting better and better.


The entire Slovenian coast is Slovenian-Italian-speaking. Interchange Srmin.


We're turning left.


The recommended speed.


Expressway to the port of Koper isn't built yet.


In 500 m we join the 4-lane H5 Coastal Expressway.

Great pictures and motorways! I've only got two questions for you: Why is there no hardshoulder in some parts of that motorway and does that electronic board switch from english to slovenian every few seconds or is it permanently in english?

If there are three lanes (additional for slow vehicles on slopes), there's never hard shoulder by.

About the language:

Nice pictures! That last set looked like a drive across upstate New York on I-86/Southern Tier Expressway and a sidetrip on I-88.



BTW, with the EU's 'Borderless Zone', when can we expect the various Slovenian border crossing checkpoints to disappear?

Oh yea, Congrats on your country's accession to the Euro! (I like your €0.20 coin's design, too.)

^ Horses are great animals.

The borders are to fall at the end of this year.


EDIT: well, here you got it - Lipizzaner from Lipica (pronounced Lipizza).

A1 looks very well maintained on these pictures. Plus, those signs giving distances to the cities in Italy in Croatia really make it feel more international.

By the way, does anybody know if the US freeway signs provide distances to some of the Canadian cities? And vice versa?

Great pics. But there are too many destinations on the distance signs...
