It's only a motorway when it is signed as a motorway, according to European rules. It's not a motorway because you think they forgot to remove all signs.

Why don't you email the transportation department for explanaiton?

radi6404, buddy ... PLEASE Stop flooding this thread with useless comments and crappy photos ! Take a rest , grab you camera and go to shoot some better photos of your beloved Struma . When you are ready in a week or month than come here to post again.

I am tired of reading tons of pages of bla-bla-bla and useless questions, exlanations, and anger outbursts!

The moderator should have left a single thread called something like "Radi's thread" where he and all of you who like to make fun with him and his obsessions could make your chats...

We used to have such a thread, and that didn't turned out very well.

I am watching Radi close, so don't worry. Please discuss with understanding and respect

Ok, thank you Chris

Now a couple of photos from that old , still not reconstructed stretch of Hemus highway - the second one has a closer look at the pavement that you were so curious to know what is

And one more of the viaducts on Hemus - the one before Sofia - above the villages Stolnik & Eleshnitsa

proof it. And even if it does, why should 20km Struma be better than 2400km of Dutch motorways?

If the Struma was in the Netherlands and the government decided to close it for some reason and turn the entire length into a wildlife sanctuary nobody would even notice.

Slightly off topic, but how much different is Bulgarian from the other South Slavic languages? Is it mutually intelligible to Slovenian, Croatian, Serbian, Montenegrin, Bosnian or Macedonian speakers? How about to the Eastern Slavic languages?

What can I say, I'm a bit of a linguistics nerd.

To some degree, it can probably be understood by speakers of most Slavic languages, and especially by those who can also read the Cyrillic script. However, Bulgarian is quite unique in the group, because it has very minimal nominal declension (unlike all other Slavic languages, which decline in 6-7 cases), and also has a definite article (postfixed). From what I've seen, I can say that Bulgarians generally have no trouble becoming fluent in Russian, although they frequently get the cases wrong because they do not exist in Bulgarian.

Oh yeah, and I'm also a pretty big linguistics nerd.

Macedonian also left declension. Macedonian is also the most similar to Bulgarian of all Slavic languages. it is something like half way from Serbian to Bulgarian. thes similarities go nice from east to west. Bulgarian is similar to Macedonian, Macedonian to Serbian, Serbian to Croatian, Croatian has dialects very similar to Slovenian.

Yes but when i travelled to Austria I passed Serbia,Hrvatska and Slovenia and i talked in Bulgarian all the way and everyone understood me and i had a very funny story in Croatia when i asked for sticker/lepenki(Bulgarian) and the Croatoian guy didn't understand me at first but then smiled and asked me "nalepnice"?

well, yes. from all non-ex-yugoslavian slavic languages, ex-yugoslavian nations can understand Bulgarian the best (omg, what a sentence, i hope you understand it ). with west slavic nations it is harder. i can understand some Czech because around my city lives a lot of Czechs and i have some freinds Czechs, Slovak is similar, but Polish... i cannot understand a single word. written yes, but spoken - no way!
east slavic languages are in some way universal. they have a lot of words from Proto-slavic language, so if you think a little bit, you can find out the meaning. but again, i can understand Russian more than Ukrainian.
