Wrong again (and also in the 'wrong' language)

The word is correct.

I would just add, that the city is Raabs an der Thaya in german and Czech merchants mistakenly translated the name to Rakous according which, the whole Austria started to be called Rakousko.

Slovak language were influenced by Czech, and since in pronunciation the Czech "ou" is translated as "ú", we started to call it Rakúsko as well.

Ridiculous situation is in terms of Austria-Hungary, which is called Rakúsko-Uhorsko or Rakousko-Uhersko. In former Czechoslovakia pre-1918 Hungary is called Uhorsko and post-1918 Hungary Maďarsko. I can't tell you why, but Uhorsko seems to be derived from english Hungary whereas Maďarsko from Hungarian Magyarországh.


The European Schengen Area Entry signs seems to totally different.

Off course, but "someone" can say something only for himself and not for all.

Luxembourg in this case would be an interesting example.officialy the administration language,so the language they used in traffic is french but they off course all spreak perfect german and german is the,lets say,everyday work language for newspapers and so on.what would now be logical to write on a german sign direction luxembourg.i saw signs with luxemburg and luxembourg on it in germany and one with clervaux(clerf) on which is strange cause the luxemburgian name for clervaux is klierf, i would like to know where clerf is comming from.

Nice one

If only the'd sign Elvas and Badajoz (and distances) instead of the border. As can be seen, no booths.


Btw, is El Corte Ingles add near the motorway still in Portugal? (in Spain it is forbidden to have adds)

Could you rewrite that post and do a spellchecker on it? I almost know what you mean, but with the effort you've put in this post it may not be worth answering...

PL/SK border in Zwardoń

This is Polish S69 expressway; direction Slovakia. The border is just behind the second overpass.


Direction Poland


The traffic here is very low, also there is no heavy transit. That's because Slovak side is missing a decent road and heavy trucks are not allowed here.

The viaduct that I took the previous photos from:


New border terminal opened in January 2006. In December 2007 Poland and Slovakia joined the Schengen area. Such a waste of money


Another view of the now useless terminal:


Thiese viaducts seen in the distance are part of Slovak D3 expressway. Wait, didn't I say that there is no decent road? Well... this ~3km section is completed but not opened for traffic, because it leads to nowhere.


Construction of the stretch that will link this section to route 11 (thus allowing heavy trucks and possibly changing the route of E75) should start about now.

Bonus:
PL/SK border stone:

SK side


PL side

No, but instead they've put an Italian layout and style sign in three languages 2 km before the border warning motorists about the tolls ahead in Italy. On the Italian side there's also an Austrian sign...

Of course. I didn't say he did. But I find even one individual having that attitude depressing. [soapbox mode on] Your (Europe/Europeans') diversity is a great advantage, perhaps your greatest. Don't throw it away. [soapbox mode off]
