First Swedish motorway ever constructed, in 1953. Back then known as Autostradan.

Ljubljana - Beograd was made of concrete (probably whole road number 1 from Kranjska Gora to Gevgelija). i think that i remember that road 11 from Maribor to Zagreb was made of concrete. also, todays croatian D41 from Zagreb to Vrbovec was made of concrete. i'm sure there were more examples.

It was maybe back in the time when i haven´t been born.
I didn´t say there wasn´t, but that i haven´t seen them.
I know that "Autoput" Ljubljana - Belgrade when it was built in 40´s-50´s it was mostly concrete road, but from that time lot of changed.

Concrete era ended (as I remember):
- Ljubljana - Grosuplje in 1989
- Višnja Gora ascent with granite stones in 1986 or 1987
- Višnja Gora - Ivančna Gorica in 2000
- Otočec - SLO-border between 2002 an 2004 (some shorter parts got asphalt before that however)
- also I think, that Bregana - Zagreb was mostly concrete until motorway opening of Croatian A3 (don't know which year)

We also still have a concrete freeway in the Netherlands, the A1 from Hengelo to the German border, approximatly 20 kilometers of concrete are left, but if you want to see it, you gotta be fast, because they're gonna repave it with asphalt this summer.

Yes, that was the initial name for grade-separated dual carriageways. I don't know exactly when the usage changed to motorväg (literally motor road), but I guess sometime during the early 1960s.

SO Slovenia had the most concrete roads, or better say road.

2000. It was horrible before (probably b/c of the war). It had big potholes, so the speed was limited to 70 km/h (probably from 100 km/h, as any other motorroad).

Complete Zagreb-Belgrade had concrete pavement (don't know, how it was further from Belgrade), but it was gradually replaced with openings of new motorway already in early 70-ies. Other parts were also gradually repaved.
Be aware, that postwar Yugoslav concrete roads were of much inferior quality comparing to prewar concrete roads, which had much better quality (but there were not abundant) and could be compared with Hitlers German autobahns (of course not in number of lanes).

Wasn't there a small bit of A59 with concrete pavement?

Somewhere between Den Bosch and Oosterhout? There might be, I remember that, but I haven't been there in a while. There might be some more isolated stretches of concrete freeway here and there. I know there are still some other provincial roads with concrete slabs.

I took these pics on the N343 last weekend;

You'll get that thumb-thumb noise though, they are old slabs, but because of the low traffic, not really damaged.

There is one short section of such national road in Slovakia too. Road I/2 in Kúty. This is the best photo I've found, it seems to be a bit flooded:
