Somewhere in Spain (btw: Alcantarilla means sewer


Nowe Rumunki (“new Romanian girls”) & just below “touristic & rest resort”



From Warmia & Masuria region, Poland
Clockwise:
1) Raj = Paradise
2) Wenecja = Venice
3) Żabi Róg = The horn of the frog (I know this small village as I spent some 2 weeks in neighboring Florczaki)
4) Zezuj = “please squint”
5) Ameryka = America
6) Rączki = small hands



Did you ever see a boar (sanglier) like on the pic ?


I know the name of this Hungarian village will make Poles on this thread laugh (nagi kutas = nude prick)


Japanese sign. No comment.


Good sign !

A 270 degrees turning sign in Budapest. Quite unusual.
The numbers represent national roads and motorways the sign is leading to.

The common shape of street name signs in Budapest.
They indicate the district (here, the 14th), the area name within the district (here, Istvánmező), the street name and a range of house numbers as a guidance.

A house number 1 going from "sub-numbers" 1/a to 1/j is uncommon and weird, though.

AFAIK the first one tells you to go straight ahead, and the second on to turn right before you reach the sign... so you can go straight ahead while passing the first one, and turn right exactly after it

Hungarian "buckle up!" poster along M7 motorway. The represented word "Véd" means "It protects".

Australia has been using metric since the 1970s. There are remnant signs (some that have been retained for heritage purposes, others because they're just still there) that use miles though.

Auxiliary sign with tiny letters in front of some road works in Keszthely, Hungary. One has to stop to get the information from it ...

Cool sign

bonus: it looks like a second-hand express way sign repainted

"Except" in four languages in this sign in Budapest.

Russian is not that surprising, as this busy square was named Moscow Square (Moszkva tér) before, while its present name is Széll Kálmán tér.
