See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucharest#Climate

Record high: +40 °C
Record low: -23.9 °C

The problem this days isn't so much the low temperatures, but the massive snowfalls combined with heavy winds, so every time a snow plow passes, in a few minutes the snow is back on the road.

It isn't so extreme. In some parts of Russia the record jump is around 100°C (-60 +40).

yes, and some other parts of the world even higher! Russia is big and I do not compare it to "european norms" if we talk about weather.

There are images from inside the Karawanken tunnel, until the Austrian border.

Nice! Now I can go all the way from home to the Bulgarian coast entirely on Street View.

River river, this one for the Strange Road Sign thread since it's redundant. This is the last bridge before the Reka disappears underground.

By the way, some days ago I said the Isonzo river used to flow further West than it does now until a landslide forced it to take its current path. This appears to be the old river bed, and the landslide apparently occurred to the back of that point.

I present you Slovenia's longest tunnel (L = 15 m)


https://goo.gl/maps/OCfMr

(I know that most = bridge, but what's the tunnel sign doing there?)

Defacto it is a tunnel - "bridge" was actually dug under railway.

@Street view - amazingly Google took also many dirt roads

It's the longest entirely within Slovenia, the longest is the Karavankentunnel. (I expected they had some tunnels on Slovenian mountain roads).

So the railway was built first, and many years later they decided to build the motorway... so they had to dig out under the railway? That's cool

There are many other (motorway) tunnels in Slovenia, besides Karawankentunnel and this 15-long one.

If I remember well (it was almost 4 years ago), there are only a couple of wildlife crossings all the way from Sezana to Bregana and no real tunnels. However there is this tunnel in Nova Gorica (non motorway, though).

There are two tunnels SE of Ljubljana and elsewhere on the motorway network.
