Can you tell me what is the second (blue-white) name sign for? Usually in Slovakia such a sign shows the town name in the secondary (in this case Hungarian) language, but having the Slovak name twice has no sense (Hungarian name would be Márkusfalva).

Just a guess since I'm not sure about Slovakia, but in some countries "white on blue/green" indicates the beginning of the administrative municipality area (just for informational purposes, not for any regulations) and "black on white/yellow" indicates the beginning of the built-up-area (including regulations such as restrticted speed, by default usually 50 km/h). Sometimes they happen to begin in the same place.

Yes, you are partially right. The blue sign is in another language, but it is not Hungarian, but Roma language.

The problem is, that there aro no special names for cities (in Slovakia) in Roma language. It means that on blue sign is written the same as on blue one.

These blue sign are located in cities with strong minority communities.

They used to have these signs in the former DDR, where parking your vehicle partly on the pavement was common practice...

We don't have them in Italy. We're allowed to park on the pavement only if there are parking lines painted over (it usually happens when there are very wide pavements).

865 - park cars at angle
883 - blind crossing (goes with crosswalk sign to mark crossing which is often used by blind people)
