I am posting a compilation of Bulgarian roads for some of our neighbors who wanted to see what they look like. My appologies for not really being on topic since those are not motorways, but as it was a sincere wish, here goes:

Vidin - Montana (E79), near Smolyanovtsi:




In the town of Montana:




Montana - Lom (I-81), near Rasovo:




Sofia - Veliko Tarnovo (E772), at the village of Sopot:




Pleven - Lovech (I-35), near Slavyani:




Ruse - Shumen (I-2), near Beli Lom:




Silistra - Tutrakan (I-21), near Nova Popina:




Dobrich - Balchik (I-27), near Dobrich:




Varna - Byala (I-9), near Rudnik:




Aytos - Karnobat (I-6), near Sokolovo:




Burgas - Sozopol (I-99), near Atiya:




Simeonovgrad - Stara Zagora (I-503), at the entrance of the village of Vassil Levski:




Dimitrovgrad - Haskovo (I-5), near Dimitrovgrad:




Mineralni Bani - Petelovo (I-506), near Petelovo:




Haskovo - Kurdzhali (I-5), near Chernoochene:



There are many more I could show, but I don't feel like running out of bandwith, so instead here are two videos:

Shipka Pass, credits to Jlokym:




Maglizh - Gurkovo:

Thanks a lot for the photos and videos. I am glad all of the roads shown look like high-quality roads.

My point was to pick random stretches from all around the country and in doing so not only to select the main roads. As I said, there's much more to show, but the idea is for people to see a little of what hasn't been shown before (and to save my photobucket account's bandwidth at the same time ).

In fact, the official number of the motorway from Sofia to Kulata is A6. It has two parts called Lyulin and Struma motorway. Lyulin are the first 19km. starting from Sofia, and Struma are the remaining 156km. from Pernik to Kulata.
A5 is the number of Cherno more motorway, and it is shown at all the signs in Varna, where it starts.

Jeez, that's a hard one! I'll look through the web when I have more spare time to see if I can find some info / photos, but honestly speaking, I know of very few tunnels on national roads in Bulgaria (that doesn't mean there aren't more). We've got some urban tunnels in cities / towns (e.g. in Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Veliko Tarnovo) and I'll look for pictures of those, too.

FYI, we also have many railroad tunnels.

There are 4 tunnels at Hemus (A2), 3 at Lyulin (A6), and one at Trakiya (A1) motorways.
The tunnels at the rest of the national roads are shorter, and generally with one tube. There are some more tunnels at E79 road (Kresna gorge) and Iskar river gorge.

Here's one of those tunnels:




...and another one (they look alike):




These two tubes are on E79 again, at Dupnitsa:




This one's near Trigrad, in the Rhodope Mountains.




Again, in the Rhodopes, near Devin and the recently finished Tsankov Kamak Dam






This is a short video taken in one of the tunnels in Plovdiv:

By the way, here is a video of the Maritca motorway, we have very little visual material about this motorway unfortunately.

It looks very good, it has great asphalt and markings and hsiny crashbarriers.

Any pictures of the signs?

Lyulin Motorway from the air. In the distance-Pernik. The village is called Malo Buchino. This is the first tunnel when coming from Sofia and heading towards Pernik.

Thanks!
Lyulin motorway starts where you have put the B point, and goes to east. It still doesn't excist on that map, but you can see it if you switch to satellite view.

I have one photo, but it's not very clear:



Anyway, I think it says A5.

I want to go from Romania to Greece using the new Lyulin motorway.
What route is best to go around Sofia on the ring road (coming from Plevna/Pleven)?
By north or by south?

Coming from Pleven (A2), I think it's better to take the north arc of Sofia ringroad. And then Lyulin motorway.
