It's always to the centre, so to the town hall or post office.

Usually, but if there's just 1 km to the beginning of a city and further 10 km to the center, it usually says just 1 km. And those 7.5 km on that sign must be to the beginning of Ravne na Koroškem, there's additional kilometer to the center.

In Budapest this is the 0 km, every distance is measured from here on km posts or city distance signs:

In the Netherlands we usually don't sign towns at less then a kilometer. In such a case it just says "Abcoude - ", for example.

I don't like distances to the city center. It's ridiculous when you're passing a sign "wilkommen in Berlin-Treptow" and then see a sign "Berlin 28km".

^ Yeah, that's ridiculous, but if you're some 200 km away, I'd rather see to the center (not that it would be much different).

Btw, in 2-3 weeks it will be known what kind of vignettes/toll system we'll have in the near future.

Just before exit Abcoude there is a sign (on the A2) with "Amsterdam 12". In fact, the city limits of Amsterdam are only 30 meters from the city limits of Abcoude. At the point where that sign is it is still about 2 km. So they must be talking about the end of the A2 on that sign, b/c the city center of Amsterdam is still a little further.

Nah some signs in NL are outdated, for instance the cycle path near Zwolle-South says "Zwolle 7km" while the city limits are like 200 m away. But the sign might be pre-1980's, when Zwolle-South didn't exist and you had to travel a while until you've reached the city back then.

The government proposes weekly vignette for 15 € and yearly vignette for 95 €. They shall be introduced on 1st July this year.
