Oh ok, I thought they were embassies of Slovenia, Russia and the Vatican to Italy, I wasn't thinking about the Vatican's smallness.

I don't think that's the sign Verso meant. Ljubljana and Postojna are written correctly.

I can't believe they corrected it after some 20 years. You can see the corrected name is added (lighter blue than the rest of the sign). :p But it's possible it's not this sign actually, so the wrong one is maybe still there somewhere. Notice how tiny Postojna is written slightly bigger than 30 times bigger Ljubljana.

Yeah, like Trst. (but we also have 'Trieste' on most other signs, this sign is old and ugly anyway)
