Yes, it's the MKAD (from Minsk, not from Moscow).

I was quite surprised seeing yellow lines here.

i thought about some ex Soviet countries because bus stations and those white-black edges of the road are so typical, but there is no Lada's in sight, so i was in doubt

ok, let's go next. for one guy here this should be easy, i hope he's offline now

Well, i usually screen the picture first

1) It's a border station
2) It's a major border station because it has extensive facilities
3) It's not in the older EU countries, because of the facilities
4) It has a lot of exits close near eachother, that is typical Italian
5) It's not a rivercrossing border station
6) It can't be very busy, because there are not so many gates
7) This means it's a truck route, but not a very heavy car route

This excludes many border crossings. So it's not very hard to find. And it is easy to say it's in Europe because of the facilities. Asian or South American countries don't have these extensive facilities, and the US-Mexico and US-Canadian border is straight.

What I hate though is that in Italy signs suggest this is the only way to Slovenia, even though it's much worse than the one over Trieste (if you go to Ljubljana, for example). Besides, Slovenia is also south and southeast of Trieste (also gateway for Croatia).

Maybe they want to divert traffic away from Trieste.

Probably, but it's not a good way. Then you get heavy trucks on this crappy road instead of this motorway.

Also, signs for Slovenia (SLO) and Austria (A) should already be by Venice instead of Palmanova, and signs for Croatia (HR) should already be by Palmanova instead of Opicina.

Chris, your turn.

Again no one. I don't know why, but this interchange is quite unique:

Is it special because it has the shape of a thong?
