Okay, here is the procedure of my investigation:
1) I have found out that the streets or public places named after Antonia occur currently in Hungary only. Slovakia was a part of Hungary that time, so it is a good evidence, that Antonia is somehow related to the Hungarian history.

2) The person must have been very famous which was known by everybody, otherwise she would be noted with a surname. Inventor, poet or other important people would be noted with surnames.

3) Who was famous in that time? Saints or monarchs. I have looked up for monarchs in Hungarian history and the only popular one was aforementioned Marie-Antoinette. Though I think she is too little related to Hungarians. I have found several saints called Antonia, but most of them were absolutely unknown nuns.

Marie-Antoinette was a strong public enemy in 16th century and I doubt her position changed less than two centuries later. Therefore I don't think that these streets are named after her.

Was she a public enemy in the Austrian Empire? She was a daughter of Maria Theresa who was executed by anti-monarchist revolutionaries. In the eyes of the people who were naming streets back then, she might have been a martyr.

Basically, I am no expert in the French history, but I thought she had always been considered someone to be despised. But after short googling I have realized that it is not fully clear. Moreover some sources implies she was a martyr (after she was exhumed at the dawn of the 19th century). It would be a good precondition to become someone to have public places named after. Given the fact that my street was finished 50 years later, it could be related. The only mystery is why only in Hungary :-)

Btw. it interests me because my street is a branch of longer street and people trying to reach me (couriers for instance) are wandering because they do not know, that my street is still a part of the larger street. Therefore I proposed the city council an idea of renaming this short branch and the only name that came to my mind was the former name probably after her.

now i see that it is the former name of your street. do you know what is the former name of my street? 4th July Street

of course, it was not named after famous American 4th July, but some Yugoslav holiday in relation with partisans.

Here's another (Maria) Antonia, that is also related to Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. Again no confirmation, just another guess:

Don't use Google Photos for uploading images on the forum, as the picture cannot be seen (at least here). Use imgur instead.

I can't believe that after all those years, hotlinking photos from Google STILL doesn't work properly. This is an issue that goes 10+ years back.

Someone can see them (I guess, because that post received at least 1 like) someone can't... I can't understand why.

Anyways, this was it:

Congrats!

I always had the impression that you have ordered a Hyunday Tucson...

I am not a big fan of the exterior design (actually frontal design, the back is ok) of this Peugeot, but the interior is just WOW (maybe you share also a picture from inside with us).

That was my first choice, but after test-driving it... meh.

Exterior-wise the Tucson is more elegant, I agree. About the 3008, my impression is vice-versa - I like the front, not so much the back.

For the interior, it is fantastic: I will post more pictures but I have to wait. Unfortunately I'm leaving to Germany for a week, and since I still do not have a private box for the car, I had to park it at work (the place is guarded 24/7). Only drawback: nobody is allowed in during weekends.
So basically I got the car from the salon, drove it to work and left it there... and I have to wait one week to drive it again...

I miss Dutch food prices in general. Eating out at mid range restaurants is very expensive in Norway. Same meat-based (except fish) quality /size dish costs 2.5 - 3x more than in Rotterdam or Eindhoven.
Selection of certain product categories is quite limited even at large supermarkets, but it seems locals are not bothered. EU based online stores also don't sell non refrigerated food for delivery here (think specialty pasta or certain exotic cereals). I kinda miss living in the EU sometimes.
