Austria, Hungary and Slovakia are using these flag-signs for sure.

I know, I meant Slovenia. We only had coat of arms on signs before.

Border crossing Razvor - Bistrica ob Sotli (HR - SLO)

Croatian side


and Slovenian side. this is terminal for lorries. cars and buses go left...


...where you find this:


btw, those little border crossings are shitty because officers are bored and they check everything i went back on Gruškovje - Macelj where Slovenian officer wanted to open our passports, but telephone ringed and she told us just to pass. Croatian officer also told just to pass.

Where is the train whre the traffic is warned for on the 1st picture?

You are right about those little border crossings. I have onced crossed SLO to HR in Lupinjak. The officials were not really in a hurry. I even got a stamp (which I never got when entering Croatie by car before).

right after Slovenian border crossing. unfortunately, it is defunct currently, but i hope it will be operational again soon (problem is jsut because it goes next to border and it crosses it few times, and HR is not in EU so it makes such a giant problem). here is an aerial view, you can see railroad:

There is also this railroad between Gorlitz and Zittau, in Germany, that crosses the Neisse a few times. One of the German stations is actually in Poland. Was this railroad also closed until Poland joined the EU?

There are more railroads which cross the borders several times, like between BiH and HR and between BiH and SRB. Could also be a problem when 1 of the countries joins the EU/Schengen and one does not.

i don't think there should be problems with this railroad at HR-SLO border. although it crosses border few times, only 3 crosses are crucial because Slovenia has stations only at 2 parts. first part is 4 km long between Kunšperk and Polje pri Bistrici. there should be customs. second part is final entering into Slovenia at Golobinjek, from where it cuntinues only at Slovenian teritory

When Yugoslavia still existed, were there checks between the different parts of the country?

No. Slovenia is funny. Before 1991 there were checks on the border with Italy, Austria and Hungary, but not with Croatia. Since 2007 it's vice-versa; checks on the border with Croatia, but not with Italy, Austria and Hungary.

No, since it was one country. But not only there weren't any checks, there weren't any signs which showed you the republic you entered. Unless you did know the geography very well, foreigners could not determine whether they were in Croatia in Bosnia or Montenegro (since the language is the same).
Neither between Croatia and Slovenia, but since the language is different anyone with some knowledge of the local languages could see when he entered Slovenia or Croatia.

Thanks. It would be weird if there were checks, but still

i remember when i traveled to Slovenia in 1988 and i easily recognized when we entered to Slovenia at today's border crossing Bregana/Obrežje because there were 2 gas stations very near each other - one was Ina, and one was Petrol so border was somewhere between

Yup, I didn't mention that one, but that was also a way to determine the Slovene-Croat border (in those times just a 2-lane road with no motorway at all). In 1992 when I croeed a inner-Yugoslav border for the first time, (and the Croat checkpoint was nohing more than a big container), the both gasstations were still there. Now they are gone, I thought that the Croat checkpoint is built on the spot where the INA station was.

As far as I remember I also noticed a slightly change in the type of speedsigns between Croatia and Slovenia.

But furthermore: The borders within SFRJ were not signed or marked at all (to be more precisely: I have never seen it).

The border between Northern Croatia and BiH was easy to see - that was/is the river Sava (but unmarked as well).

I can't tell about the borders between Serbia the neighbouring Yugoslav republics whether they were marked or not since I have never been in Serbia.

No. Before 1991, this was just an ordinary country scenery:

They weren't marked as borders between republics but as borders between different roads maintaining companies. For instance, when you were entering Macedonia from Serbia, you could see the sign "Makedonijasoobrakaj vi poželuva sreken pat" (Macedonan road company wishes you nice trip) and in opposite way there was the sign "Deonica koju održava OOUR Vranjeput" (Section maintained by Vranjeput). You could suppose where is the border just regarding these signs.
