It can be quite funny what a city means in another language. In Germany, there is a town called "Opladen", which is Dutch for charging. And one that has already been mentioned often in the H&A section: "Aars" in Denmark.
It is true, but Bratislava is Pozsony in hungarian, and it is never going to be pressburg or bratislava or a 3. thing
But it is very important to sign it on the local language but use it in everyday language, noway. A hungarian will never say Wien in hungarian, it is BÉCS.Warszawa is VARSÓ.

LOL Well, anyway, I'm not bothered with double signs, what bothers me are signs like in Belgium, with only local names, without original.

IMO it's just better to sign all towns and cities with the original names. And with original I mean the name that it has got at the moment in the country that city is in. Bad for the minorities, but it saves lots of discussion and it's a better solution for tourists.

Or creates new discussions. There's a Slovenian village Bazovica/Basovizza by Trieste (in Italy), with possibly not even one Italian living there, and there were some protests by the local population, when they installed a sign with the Slovenian and Italian expressions in Slovenia (including "I" for Italy in oval), so imagine what they'd think, if they only put the Italian expression for a 100% Slovenian village.

No.
The wintertime is not the problem. It was a sunny day.
The problem is his camera. Some images has an aperture of 8.8, thats way too high.
An aperture between 2.8 and 4 ist the best for roadpics - then the pics won't be blurred.

Never heard it, I'd like to know about that. I make lots of blurry pics. I'm not a real camera expert and I only have a simple camera.

In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light is admitted.

I usually take pics with the "auto" mode. I have no time to manually change the properties while driving at the same time.

What camera-type do you have?
I think it's a digital compact camera without any manual modes for Aperture and Shutter speed - so you can't change it...

The best cam for roadpics is a cam with "aperture value" (Link in German) - but the most compact camera haven't got sth. like this...


Damn - my English is too bad to describe it exactly....

maybe your camera has "sport" mode for fast moving objects (or for moving camera :-)

it gives priority for exposure time (to be short) and this reduces blurring...

In this day and age of open borders, unlimited travel, this shouldn't exist anymore.
I think for a Hungarian Fiume, Eszék, Bécs, Pozsony Nagyvárad, Szatmárnémeti mean more, than Rijeka, Osijek, Wien, Bratislava, Oradea, Satu Mare and so on.
But a foreign person looks for the Croatian, Austrian, Romanian, etc city names. It think this doubled signs are the best.
