Danube road but Danube is in former capital - Vienna.

yes, of course is also because Vienna was also capital for us (but more Budapest as a capital of Hungarian kingdom) but it`s just 60 km and it is/was really important city

BTW: A pri železničnej stanici v Ljubljane je Masarykova cesta!: )

Sure... It was quite common to name the ways with the name of the city where they head to. It already started allways with the name of the gate that directed towards that city. The road just acquired the name from the gate and direction. Funny that in this way the roads had double names ... The gates however only one. How they did it in between I don't know... I would however say it would have to do something with the city rights also - how far they reached so far could the name be used perhaps.

Yeah! In Trieste we also have "Strada per Vienna / Dunajska Cesta", it is the old path to Vienna through Ljubljana and Graz.

Hm, that's new for me - Dunaj means Vienna in Slovenian... Where did this name come from?? In Slovak/Czech it means only Danube river, Vienna is Viedeň/Vídeň.

I know that it has two or more meanings, but be sure, we don't have any roads for Danube! (although it seemed we had roads under "Danube" a week ago.

Ooo, this tricky language!

I`ve just realised it really means Vienna`s road.

another tricky street is Slovenska cesta near castle which in Slovak language means Slovak road but in Slovenian it means Slovenian road

and to be not so off topic -

border Bratislava/Rajka, SK/H on a road 2 now it`s not in use



other road





and on a motorway D2/M15

Pictures of the souternmost (legal) possibility to cross the border between Portugal and Spain between Villa Real de Sao Antonio (PT) and Ayamonte (ES). The ferry is suitalbe for cars, but that is not nessecary anymore since the A22-A49 crossing has been opened 20 years ago.

Pictures

1. Portugese EU-sign


2. Looking south, where the Guidiana river flows into the Atlantic.


3. The Portugese terminal and the ramp which can be used for cars (but none did)


4. So, space enough on the ferry.


5. en 6. The highway between Portugal (A22, left) and Spain (A49, right)



7. en 8. Arrival in Ayamonte, Spain. It is 1 hour later than in Portugal.



9. Back in Portugal (and 1 hour back in time)


10. Portugese sign to the ferry

With Schengen, isn't everywhere a legal crossing?

P.S I've been on that ferry, did you see the shipwreck.

Was the pavement on A22-A-49 still that bad? I saw a video of the border bridge, it had bad pavement (on the bridge only).

Possibly, the A22 is a pretty bad excuse for a motorway anyway.

9. Back in Portugal (and 1 hour back in time)

With the opening of the international bridge 20 years ago, the portuguese railways shutdown a train station (of the Algarve Line [Lagos-Vila Real de Santo António]) that was located on the ferry dock!!!

Look what I caught on camera last month (CZ/SK/PL border):



And the signposts (I know that is not very readable, but the writing was just graved on them, without different color):

Czech Republic:


Poland:


Slovakia:




The actual tri-border is in the middle of this small river below the bridge:

If you come from Slovakia I think it's better to enter CZ and head to Hrčava, because I haven't seen any acces road from the Slovak side (except one forest road but looked very unaccesible, even on foot). From Hrčava there is a 1 km footpath and you reach the tripoint.
