I'm afraid it's time to unstick this thread. Or do you guys wanna give it another try? If there are no argumentated objections, this thread will be unsticked tomorrow.

Bump! Ok, try to guess this 8-lane highway. Just a reminder: you can't see it in Google Earth.

Saint Petersburg is completely covered by GE. It's not that the picture in GE is outdated, it's just that it isn't covered with high resolution.

8 lanes, yet not visible in Google Earth. That's either somewhere in Eastern Europe or a megalomanic place.

Let's say it's an interesting place. About Eastern Europe; its exact borders aren't defined, so I can't really comment on that.

I don't know, if you can see it there or not.

I think this means it's obviously in a place where it's disputed, whether it's Eastern Europe or not.

No, it's Europe by all definitions, it's disputed, whether it's Eastern Europe or southern/western/northern/central...

I can see "Eastern" Europeans crazily asking themselves: "which of our four countries has an 8-lane highway, when I know none of them has it?!"
