Everything depends on how we set the general sea level

When i was a kid,i remember that we (me and my family) went to Palmanova shopping centers quite frequently, but never enter the city itself ,don't know why we haven't. ....Interesting town.




Palmanova is a town and comune in northeastern Italy, close to the border with Slovenia. It is located 20 kilometres (12 mi) from Udine, 28 kilometres (17 mi) from Gorizia and 55 kilometres (34 mi) from Trieste near the junction of the Autostrada Alpe-Adria (A23) and the Autostrada Venezia-Trieste (A4). The entire town of Palmanova is famous for its concentric citadel or fortress plan and structure, called a star fort, imitated in the Modern era by numerous military architects. It consists of three rings, which were built in stages. The first circle, with a circumference of 7 kilometres (4 mi), was built starting in 1593; its construction took 30 years. The second phase of construction took place between 1658 and 1690. Between 1806 and 1813 the last work was performed. The fortress consists of: 9 ravelins, 9 bastions, 9 lunettes, 18 cavaliers. On 7 October 1593, the superintendent of the Republic of Venice founded a revolutionary new kind of settlement: Palmanova

Another example is Tarvisio (Trbiž) and its yugo trap, Ponterosso market ..i remember it vaguely though. Nowadays there is nothing left to see there, no sign of this market existence what so ever, just "concrete plato".


Ahh memories ..I see they changed their sales tactics, garden dwarfs instead of leather jackets and jeans

I remember that market from 1980s. No offense to Italians, but when I was small, whenever we went to Trieste or Tarvisio to those chaotic markets, I was always afraid someone would kidnap me.

why don't they ever play soccer in a multiteam (four is nice) arrangement like that? The two team thing is often, bloody boring...

That's right, Italians and Germans were scaring the shit out of me when I was still a Yugoboy.

Tranvia Trieste-Opicina/Openski tramvaj / after two years in service again!

In Triestine dialect:
El tram de Opcina

E anche el tran de Opcina xe nato disgraziā
venindo zo de Scorcola una casa ga ribaltā
bona de Dio che iera giorno de lavor
e dentro no ghe iera che 'l povero frenador


In Slovenian:

Openski tramvaj že ob rojstvu ni imel sreče.
Ko se je spuščal po Škorklji, se je zaletel v hišo.
Hvala Bogu, da je bil delavnik in
v tramvaju ni bilo nikogar razen ubogega zavirača.

What is your opinion about this situation? It is very common in Hungary.
Motorway, 3 lanes in your direction. Speed limit is 130 km/h. You drive exactly at that speed in the right (slow) lane. The right lane is empty as far as you can see.
Some cars drive 100-110 km/h in the middle lane. You drive on in the right lane 130 km/h, without changing lane or your speed.
It is legal? You overtake them in the right side which is basically strictly forbidden.

I think not, the safest way for everybody is to reduce speed and change lane from right to the middle lane and then you wait on safe distance until other cars do not move to the right (slow) lane.(Or you move to the left lane if it's possible and overtake them)
Problem is that sometimes they dont wanna move (for some reasons), so you are basically forced to continue your journey on right lane past them.
