[A2] Hemus motorway. That's Vitinya viaduct(not Bebresh, which is 120m and is taller). As you can see it has no emergency lanes and before and after there are "end of motorway" signs. The lanes on it are also only 3,50m wide. The speed limit is, of course, 90kmph. Usually with police officers.

You know, whenever I see the construction photos on this thread (excellent, by the way), I am always stunned by how denuded Bulgaria's hills are...

In fact neither of the two statements is generally true. Usually (not always, of course) the hills in Bulgaria are covered by forests and the climate can hardly be called Mediterranean except for some very southern valleys but there is, of course, some Mediterranean influence.

Couldn't agree more! I was born in Bulgaria and currently live in northern Indiana. A few years back I had to go on a trip to DC and it struck me how familiar the hills of Pennsylvania look. A small piece of home in a distant land :-)

There are practically all kinds of sceneries in Bulgaria. The video below is shot at about 740 m above sea level, about 35 km from Sofia in the southeast direction. You can see the hills are completely covered with forests. The latitude is almost the same as the one of the junction on the above photo.

Actually, hammersklavier, in most cases the hills and mountains in Bulgaria are quite green and covered with lush forests. In a few cases, but not always, the southern (and consequently most exposed to the sun) slopes of some mountains are drier and somewhat denuded - like the example you gave - this is the southern slope of the Ljulin Mountain. But let me quote a few pictures I posted last year in the thread about Ljulin motorway - these show the northern slope of this low mountain, covered with thick beech and oak forests, as well as its central part.

The climate of Bulgaria is not as humid as the climate in Central, Western Europe and coastal zones. That's why plants tend to dry out in autumn and winter.

Anyway, a Struma pic you may not have seen:
