Lol, are these names from 90'? And I really like the sign with "most" on some building.

Btw, Mesarski most (Butchers' Bridge) is nice, pity we have just Mäsiarska ulica (Butchers' street,btw "ä"=e) in 5 towns. Also in Košice - http://goo.gl/maps/jlCf.

There's Butchers' Street (Mesarska ulica), which is old, but the bridge is new (although it was planned for more than 70 years ).

The Bloody Bridge/Krvavi Most dates back from the middle ages indicating some "bloody" lol events in the past. Krvavi Most (the Medvescak stream which no longer exists) was the actual border between two parts of the medieval Zagreb; Gradec (craftsmen and merchants) vs Kaptol (church). There were centuries long conflicts between these two parts that had finally ended when Gradec and Kaptol got integrated into one city - what we call today - Zagreb.

This is the street...

Can we stop with this propaganda please? This is not a forum about roads, not politics.
Continuing on the off-topic, but I'm gonna have to agree with Magnus. I think most swedes feel "scandinavian" or "swedish" rather than "european". This is partly due to the fact that Sweden is geographically distant from mainland europe, but also to the fact that Sweden has been isolated politically during the entire cold war due to our neutrality. We've always been on our own, and thus swedes tend to be prejudiced towards mainland europeans and they're often frowned upon. This is my opinion though

But people anywhere in Europe don't self-identify as "European" but as Finnish, Czechoslovakian or Andorran. That doesn't apply to just Sweden, but to the whole of Europe. Also, I don't think that people from the rest of Europe frown upon Swedes, but are indifferent to them, just like they are to most other European countries.

But culturally and geographically, Sweden is a part of Europe, and so is the UK or anywhere else in Europe, whether that's liked or not

There isn't Czechoslovakian nation.

Even when Czechoslovakia (Československo) existed we used to say mainly Czechs (Češi/Česi) and Slovaks (Slováci) and rare Czechoslovakians (Čechoslováci)

Ok, I know about the 1st bit, but as you probably know, a lot of people in Western Europe still say Czechoslovakia. As for the second bit, fair enough.

Yeah, I am still happy if they know where is Czechoslovakia rather than if they ask me if Slovakia is bigger than the UK or if we have the sea.

well yes. the writer was Zagrebian, and i did my best to find a slovak translation frankly, that novel is not my cup of tea, but certainly one of Croatian classics.

20 shillings to a pound, so 40 shillings was two pounds. Which makes me wonder why they didn't just say "two pounds."

Yeah, the Lsd system, i used to think the lsd stood for pounds, shillings, pence but it was actually what they were taking when they came up with it.

Whatever about shillings I still don't get what a "crown" was.

Oh and to stay on topic, maybe not too weird and wonderful but:

Rare* Irish language "motorway ahead" sign from SABRE

*(well it used to be rare, they must be more common now :P )

A google search for irish road signs quickly turns up this:
