Well, they were looking for some "landscape" pics, and this one is an industrial landscape

Frankly I think that this pic is more about industry than about the road. That's probably why they picked this pic.

@Verso: our beautiful chimneys?

We have the tallest chimney in Europe, so I think the answer is 'no'. :P

I'm one of the 1%

Although I know many Dutch people cannot write "Ljubljana". However, I don't think we have an exonym for it.

It's Laibach in German, we can adopt "Luibeek" as the Dutch exonym. Literally translated that means "lazy creek", btw

Yep, we use some German exonyms in NL too, like Warschau and Krakau. (Warszawa and Kraków). But exonyms aren't the worst thing, the worst about Dutch translations is their phonetic transliteration. Budapest becomes "Boedapest" and Burgas "Boergas", to name some, I really hate that, it looks like where some kind of people who don't know any other language. I usually use the English exonym or the official name.

You need to get on the German A6, so via Praha seems like the fastest option to me.
