It's going on for about two centuries and it seems it will go on for at least another two centuries.

In Slovakia we have different problem. Almost noone knows our exonyms, at least in case of smaller cities and towns. For example people in regular talk use Budapešť for Budapest (but this one is rather modern exonym, not so long ago [language wise] it was Pešťbudín, but except geeks like me and people educated in old Slovak literature noone knows that). But if you ask someone in Bratislava for direction to Ráb, he wouldn't know what is it. Ráb is Slovak for Györ.

That's why I put smiley there. But, it should be definitelly signed at least from Györ.

I disagree with you here. Győr is already around the corner, it's already southeast. The best destination would be Mosonmagyaróvár (which would also be good for E65 towards Zagreb), but it's too small (and has a too long name). Győr also bothers me because it's not a particularly important highway junction, just one motorway passes it by and doesn't even change its direction (southeast). But it has a shorter name indeed, especially in all caps.
Mosonmagyaróvár is too small and unimportant, not to mention it has long name. Györ is not prefect, but probably the only option, still there is also [D2] and (H) to avoid confusion.

BTW E65 isn't mentioned at those signs, there's E75 which leads from Žilina via Bratislava and Györ to Budapest etc., hence those signs are correct. E65 is signed only on D2, thus it would be good if there was signed also some E65 destination. Mosonmagyaróvár probably isn't the best option, but maybe Szombathely or even Zágreb could be interesting.

It's also interesting why are Györ on the signs istead of Győr.

I was in Bratislava, (in Czechia), and I came back on D1. I can tell you, D1 is a very good motorway. The Považská Bystrica section U/C at night was very impressive. But I saw a depressive thing too on the D2: A pilice car was staying in the middle lane and before it was a dead man... And only his face was hided, I don't understand why haven't they hided the body... It wasn't a good experience...

In my opinion looks the new signage nice, but what i dislike is the sign of the airport, its just written "letisko" and without a plane or something that will help tourists.

Their keyboard probably doesn't have that letter, just like mine. I guess font used at Slovak signage doesn't contain "ő."

It's not sign of the airport. Letisko is name of the interchage just like Vajnory or Voderady. But, IMO there could be also symbol of a plane, airport is quite important destination. But, signage system probably doesn't allow that.

However, closer to the exit airport is obviously signed also using the plane symbol:

Hungarian signs contain all kinds of special foreign letters (Slavic, Romanian). There are even signs with Cyrillic text, indicating towns in Ukraine

I think the biggest advantage of the new signage is that motorway numbers appear correctly ("D2" instead of simply "2")

There was already discussion about Ikea in Slovakia and absence of Ikea in Slovenia few pages above: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...a#post39129800

Verso seemed to be quite envious.

Those cities are ordered according to their distance from Bratislava, E roads are ordered in numerical order. At new signage E roads are ordered according to their importance, e.g. E75, E58, E571, in both cases they don't fully correspond with cities. There is for example Brno, but noone of those E roads leads to Brno. Thus you can follow E roads or you can follow destinations, but you cannot always follow both at the same time.

E575 goes to Győr, but it would be quite confusing to write Győr two times there. Overwhelming majority of drivers drives to Győr using E75 and IMO this E road is obsolete. Signing Komárno there is much better and it respects also route of national road I/63 which leads from Bratislava via Komárno to Štúrovo.

This way it's much better than useless signing of Győr :


Absence of E58 is indeed quite weird. It's signed before this section as you can see at the photos of new signage above, it's also signed after this section as you can see bellow. To be honest I didn't notice it before since I pretty much ignore E numbers. Maybe when those signs were placed there E58 ended/started in Bratislava and only latter it was moved to Vienna.



Opposite direction:

Maybe also Slovak font has ő and the problem is those signs were designed by an ingorant. It reminds me sign which contain Miškolc in Košice:

Miškolc
AKAIK the Slovakian name of Miskolc is Miškovec or something like that so Miškolc is some hybrid version At least it is not that confusing. I also remember seeing a sign in Stúrovo indicating Budapešt' or something like that...

Yes, it's Miškovec.

There are no signs for Budapest in Štúrovo. There's only signed Esztergom. I remember quite messy sign there (probably the only dual sign in Slovakia). It looks approximately like this:

Nové Zámky
Ostrihom - Esztergom
Esztergom Clo-Zoll

That's a pretty spectacular alignment there, high above the city.
