here are some more photos from Yugoslavia. sorry for bad quality, i photographed them with my mobile from my children's encyclopedia (from 1986 )

1. i don't know which border crossing this is. it might be Šentilj/Spielfeld (today SLO/A) because Renault 4 has Maribor's plates, and there is Mercedes which must have A or D plates (i cannot see well)


2. motorway near Rijeka, part of today's motorway Zagreb - Rijeka. this motorway is unofficialy the oldest in Yugoslavia (officialy the oldest is in Slovenia). Slovenians claim that it was just a dual carriageway because of "blue" sign. i cannot claim that in 1970's it had green motorway sign, but in 1990's it had green sign 100% (and it was absolutely unchanged from 1970's)


3. toll boots Lučko (Zagreb south), entrance to today's A1 Zagreb - Split (and Zagreb - Rijeka as A1/A6). it is unrecognizable today because those old boots were changed in late 1990's.


4. west entrance (from Istrian side) to tunnel Učka. it was the longest tunnel in Yugoslavia (5062 m), built in 1981 i think. today it is 3rd longest tunnel in Croatia. toll boots are today slightly changed, but generally it looks similar

Yes, this is the GDR. There were scheduled ferry connections from Rostock and the Island of Rügen to Denmark and Sweden ... GDR-citizens could make trips for example to Trelleborg, Sweden but they were not allowed to leave the ship... some still sprang into the Baltic Sea to leave the ship and finally their country.

A5 it's an highway that connects Lisbon, the capital, to Cascais, a coastal city 30 kilometres west of Lisbon. It is very know for it's traffic jam at rush hour today.It was the first highway built in Portugal in the 40's.

A5->Lisbon-Cascais

And it lacks shoulders. I read the Netherlands was the first country in the world to construct shoulders at all motorways.
