The arrangement is based on the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. The text of the threaty did not address one importanty aspect: Close to Kalterherberg, the road L106 goes under a railway viaduct. As the treaty does not tell anything about the area under the trackbed, it is unclear whether the road under the viaduct is in Germany or in Belgium.

Does Turkey sign any city in Bulgaria or Greece (like it signs Aleppo and Batumi) or just border crossings like Kapıkule, Dereköy and İpsala?

In the very early days there were yellow sign with Selanik and Sofya at the junction where the former E5 split into E5n and E5s.
Today I haven't seen them anymore. Only this one at Kesan but that's the name of a country and not a city and somewhere towards border crossing Pazarkule-Kastanies I remember to have seen a yellow sign Bati Trakya (Western Thrace). There seems to be no standard for this.

I dont know if you guys know this but Turks have their name for each balkan country
For instance Serbia-Serbistan, Bulgaria- Bulgaristan, Croatia- Hrvatistan, etc....they only dont have their name for Slovenia so they call it..... Slovenia

That would be a shot in their own knee since they call themselves Türkiye. But yes, even the tiny European part of Turkey (3% of the entire country) is bigger than Slovenia.

It's pronounced with a vowel between H and R. Same as in Bulgarian хЪрватия.

You mean schwa (ə)? Yes, that's what I meant, "Hrvatska" is also pronounced with a schwa (Hərvatska, Hərvatistan), unless you can pronounce it without it.

Ъ is not a schwa, but a vowel in it's own right, unlike in Croatian.

I think that only countries that used to be under Turkish rule have suffix -istan.

Yes, it should be, but it does not only happen this way on the Slovene border. The last time I arrived by ferry from England (Hull-Rotterdam), even the Dutch police was hardly interested in stopping me when they saw a Dutch car en Dutch passports. And arriving on our airports (Amsterdam and Rotterdam) is not impressive either when coming from a non-Schengen country.

Do I hear Pelješac bridge?

Yup. Works started few years ago but were halted for lack of money.
