The road leading to the Struma motorway start from the Sofia - Kiustendil highway.


The Struma motorway


The awesome Struma motorway




It really looks like it was opened yesterday, and because it is spring now it is clean again, aktually very clean.


The apsolutely magnificent bridge, I am so happy I took a photo of "her"


Just look how beautiful everything looks, the Rila mountain, the deep green gras and the brand new looking Struma motorway. You CLEARLY see that the motorway is on a enbargment, that it is higher than the surrounding fields, altough not neccesarry, but the enginerers wanted to give a better panoramic view of the magnificent wild landscape there. Here, where there is no sand and so on you jsut see how the motorway really looks, I think that very, very few motorways look so high quality and futuristic. Great job, Macedonians, and I tell ya guys, I didn´t feel anything in the Bus, it was unbelievably smooth, This roads are among the smoothest raods in whole europe. Trakya and Hemus are apsolutely nothing, this is the real stuff.


The great E-79 national road


Just look at the very white markings and concerte blocks beneath the road


Again the E-79 nationalroad


The E-79




The Rila mountain...

I have to admit, that's an awesome road. Roads like Struma would've never happened under communism. You were born to the right generation, Radi.

These pictures are so STRUMATIC!! Well done, Radi. At least this time we can see the road itself not only the wayside grass.

I think this motorway can be qualified as an Autobahn, because of the quality.

Here's some pictures from Trakiya from 2006. I had previously posted some pictures from these series in wikipedia and I already saw some of them on this thread :-) Enjoy...

nice pictures, didn't know, that Sofija is so close to tall mountains.

Nice motorway, however some overpasses and viaducts need complete renovation.

A pedestrian crossing across a freeway? I mean, what is up with that?

Couple of parts of Trakia need renovation indeed but I think it will happen after the motorway is finished. They are not so long and don't represent a risk for the drivers, so they can wait a bit.

And yes, Sofia is a great place to live in. Sofia is situated in a big field surrounded by hilly areas and a high mountain. Those bas... , the Sofians go to ski with their public transport. Look what they have there:



And in summer they go hitch-hike in this marvelous place with a natural park. And also they have parts of Sofia and small residential villages in a great natural surroundings. Really, this town is so underrated.

The pictures are not in the right order. That's the end of the highway where it becomes one of Sofia's boulevards. As far as I know the southern part of the ring road that would link Trakiya to Lyulin is still under constriction. I heard it will have shinier guardrails than Lyulin :-P. Still... having a pedestrian crossing in the middle of nowhere on a 3 lane boulevard is a bit ridiculous in my opinion.

I have to say that the pictures in this thread all seem to show that Bulgaria has amazing scenery, and have put Bulgaria high on my list of possible holiday destinations.

The roads look pretty OK too.

Maybe Radi should get a job with the Bulgarian ministry of tourism. I can just imagine the campaigns - "Visit Bulgaria for mountains, forests and shiny crash barriers!"
