It's like this now. But it says "EU" only on the Croatian border, as that's where you enter EU, on other borders it only says "SLOVENIJA", cause you were already in EU.

Hungary doesn't practice that, they've allways had Magyar Köztarsaság written (e.g. Berzence)

This is good road from Italy to Greece: via Slovenia, Croatia (by highway), Montenegro (narrow roads) and Albania (locally emotions).
More quickly, than by ferry to Igoumenitsa (GR).
I traveled and checked!

Hope this might interest you:

Historical border between Republic of Poland and USSR 1918 - 1939

Na aktualnej mapie, granica pomiędzy dzisiejszymi rejonami leci po linii przedwojennej granicy państwowej Rzeczpospolitej Polskiej i ZSRR.

Treść i zdjęcie ze strony:http://wikimapia.org/#lat=53.5368516.../Ko%C5%82osowo

W tym miejscu do 17 IX 1939 roku stał słup graniczny nr 777 a po obu stronach granicy między Rzeczpospolitą Polską a Związkiem Socjalistycznych Republik Radzieckich istniała stacja Kołosowo - punkt graniczny. Odprawy graniczne odbywały się na pobliskich stacjach granicznych: po polskiej stronie Stołpce, po sowieckiej Niegoriełoje. Obecna stacja Kołosowo jest przesunięta na zachód, w pobliże dawnej gajówki i folwarku Kołosowo. Tory przechodzące przez tę stację łączyły Paryż, Berlin i Warszawę z Moskwą. Podróżni tutaj przekraczali granicę, dojeżdżali do stacji Niegoriełoje i dalej po przesiadce jechali do Moskwy...

That narrow road isn't local, it's the Adriatic-Ionian Highway! Of course you can go over Podgorica, but this is shorter. Interesting photos, everyone!

Call it whatever you want, but to get from Petrovac to Shkodër it's shorter here than over Podgorica. The whole road is also E851 (Petrovac - Bar - Ulcinj - Shkodër - Pristina), so it isn't local. It's also of normal width on the Albanian side.

Adriatic Highway (Jadranska Magistrala) is spanning the coast of EX-YU, and ends at Ulcinj. Adriatic Highway is "magistralni put" or "main road" for all its lenght, meaning up to 80km/h speeds and as good as two-lanes single carriageway road can be. Adriatic Ionian Motorway is another thing, and it is in planning stages in MNE and ALB, meaning - does not exist yet.

Road from Ulcinj to Sukobin border crossing is a regional or secondary one (meaning narrower, sharper turns, steeper gradients, rarely over 60km/h permitted...lesser quality overall). The fact that this stretch also belongs to E851 does not make this road the equal quality like the rest of the route. Those three-digit European routes can be even on local roads...

Nevertheless, it is still of decent quality and the quickest way to get from Petrovac to Shkodër. It is faster to go through Podgorica to Shkodër only for those coming from Serbia or from Bosnia via Plužine...

It's not Adriatic-Ionian Motorway, but Adriatic-Ionian Highway (or Adriatic-Ionian road, if you wish), or you think it runs over Podgorica?

It is strange that you don´t understand. We were talking about Jadranska magistrala formerly M2 in Yugoslavia it goes from Ferentici till Ulcinj the road on that stretch is everywhere same / similar. The photo that you posted are photos from local roads that go from Ulcinj to Sukobin / Murićani border crossing, what is so hard to understand? You even have a map there on your post, but here is it once more.



BTW Sukobin border crossing is opened 2002 for the first time, during Yugoslavia Sukobin was just another village in Montenegro. So no, that is not "highway" it is just another local road.

It would be interesting to see also some photos of the border between Czechoslovakia and Romania from inter-war period.
