hehe, nice last pic.

It seems like that pre-2000 cars are getting more rare in central Europe by the year. Which is a good thing

Yeah, now on top are two categories: 7-8 year old premium class cars or 3-4 year old "normal" ones

Does this small sign for a "Velence" also means 50 km/h speed limit? Or does it need to have a red border line?

perhaps

but i doubt there are many single digit roads in switzerland that still go through towns

if we stopped constructing motorways for 2 years, we would be able to construct about 500 ringroads around towns and villages
save more lives than all the motorways combined, parexample

Detached homes seems to be very common in Hungary, I always wondered about that, when I scout Budapest on Google Earth, you do see some commieblocks, but also very expansive suburban neighborhoods, much more than other ex-communist countries. Is there a reason for this?

Budapest was much smaller before the 50s.
The communists joined a LOT of used-to-be suburban towns that are now districts of budapest. And there were almost no blocks in small towns before the 50s. Újpest, Csepel, Rákos___ are all examples.

And the commie blocks are more-or-less located where the empty area was between the towns..

Velence is Venice in Hungarian.

Újpest is a wrong example. It was the country's 4th biggest economical centre before it was unified with Budapest. Clear proof is its 4-5 level centre,whereas the other areas you mention still have village-like centres. Újpest's historical centre was levelled,there are commies there now,even the old streets are gone. For example,the street where my grandfather used to play football with his friends is no more.

This Velence sign with black border line is an older one than Martonvásár sign with red border line. We use red line now, but they haven't replaced Velence sign yet.

Thanks. Do you also have signs without borders with village names and speed limit of 90 km/h?

1. RO-bound traffic is the most important foreign traffic on M3, period.
2. HU traffic on M3 heading for a foreign destination is mainly going towards RO (where the biggest community of Hungarian minority is).

So damn right the signs should read RO, not UA.

Why not UA? Romania is in too many directions, and isn't direction towards Szeged more important? Ukraine is just in one direction, is a big country and continues with Russia. That part of Romania looks more like a cul-de-sac to me.
