We have deer for wild animals (moving fast and unexpectedly) and cow for domestic animals who may cross the road (like sheep led by shepherd, or livestock going for walk).


But this one is an exception (on northern D1 near Liptovska Mara dam):


It is only one of very few signs written in English. The additional sign says:
Pozor, vydra!/Warning otter!

Hawaii in Slovakia


Also Jerusalem. Furthermore the destination below means "Don'tworry" :-)

Kundičky = "smaller c*nttown"

The most obvious commentary on this photograph is "Only fool would go to Opava"

I have a Bosnian colleague whose name is Nebojsa. Does it mean "worry" or "don't"?

I didn't know there was a Jeruzalem in Slovakia as well. The one in Slovenia is famous for wine. Apparently there's also one in Poland. Interestingly though, the Israeli capital is called Jerozolima in Polish.

funny, it sounds like nebulous in English which has the same meaning

We also have Paris... http://goo.gl/maps/fxtV3 (here on the old design of signage)
And did you know that the distance between Venice and Paris is only 20km? http://goo.gl/maps/J70Jb

There is also Rome in this area: http://goo.gl/maps/d50FF

(If you look at the map it actually makes sense: Paryż is to the north and west, Wenecja to the east and Rzym to the south )

You can find some tongue-twisting names here as well: http://goo.gl/maps/51s93

We have also our own Rome. There is also Turquía (Turkey) near there, but I can't find it. And Egipto (Egypt) is one of the thousands of villages Galicia has .

I don't find these small, unimportant villages particularly interesting (we also have a few Viennas (Dunaj), but most Slovenes probably don't even know about them). I only mentioned Jeruzalem, because everyone here knows it for wine and it's probably mentioned more often than the Israeli capital (except in news obviously).
