Ofcourse it has to do with the quality. The darker aspahlt has more bijamin or how it is called more black stuff that holds the stones. White asphalt doesn´t have that much of it. I msut say that the Strabag E-79 road has very good markings, I like that they are still very white and reflektive. Gives great feelings when driving on it.

Great roads, they seem to be of high quality. And I concur with Verso, the traffic lights are very unusual (being fixed at the bottom)

Well, there are lights on both sides of traffic lights. Usually they are before (at the beginning of) intersections (and I suppose it's like that also in Bulgaria), but here they are (also) after (at the end of) intersections.

Yes, I get it now.

They put traffic lights on the opposite side of the intersection to facilitate the drivers, but THERE ARE ALWAYS traffic lights before the intersection..You can see them on that picture

Hehe actually that's not what I was referring to I was referring to the fact that they are fixed to the pole at the bottom, so they are "standing" upright

I presume the other light is on the left side to facilitate left-turning drivers.

In North America traffic lights almost always appear after the intersection too. Placing them before (like in many places in Europe) makes no sense to me, since if you're the first car in the queue, or even worse - when you are turning left, you cannot see them at all.

In Israel they are always placed both before and after (like in Bulgaria). In Toronto they usually appear only after, although sometimes when the intersection is very large they can place a few before as well.

Hah, now I get it.

In Bulgaria the traffic lights are always fixed to the pole at the bottom.

This is a night serie of photos i have taken last weekend of the South entrance of Veliko Tarnovo. The crossroad of [E772] -> Sofia-Varna and [E85] -> Istanbul-Bucurest.

The junction was finished back in 1999(nearly 10 years ago)

The friendship tunnel, it was build for the bears to pass savely. It was shorter than I expected but the aspahlt is very good.


Shiny fences, I couldn´t believe my eyes that I am entering Bulgaria.


The beautiful new Bulgarian border at Exochi near Gotse Delchev and Kato nevrokopi at the Greek side, there´s awesome mountain forest nature there and a beautiful shiny border


Nationalroad with very shiny crashbarriers and very smooth asphalt


Extremly shiny crashbarriers


Roundabout in Gotse Delchev (Nevrokopi)

For a second there I thought you were talking in riddles about the Roki Tunnel, with the "bears" and stuff... I don't understand why would bears need a tunnel between Bulgaria and Greece, are they too lazy to go over the mountain? Or is the border somehow fenced? It seems kind of dangerous for the cars and their drivers...

Anyway, great pictures Radi!
