I dont like Żywiec, personally I prefer Warka

Zywiec is the only beer I tried when in Poland There is a 1% chance of me visiting Warsaw in February, so I will try Warka then. btw, what is the minimum drinking age in Poland?

Shit. Well, when I was in Prague with school last year, everyone in my class was 16 or younger, only one or two were 17. However, since most Dutch are quite tall, they often guessed us to be 18 or over, so everyone could buy alcohol (which we apparantly did)

as for Croatia... Ozujsko and Karlovacko are two most famous and most drinkable by us... they aren't the best in quality, but they come like a tradition
here doesn't matter what age you are, no one actually asks you how old are you...

@X236K
wow man... you're nuts congratulations on your trip

Hahaha, nice job. I'm happy all is well. About where to go, it depends on what you like. I'll be at home treating my sore throat

I saw a Moldovan van today. That's only like the second time I saw a Moldovan car here this year. I see lots of UA, RUS and BY plates here because there's a used car shop here on the industrial park.

Have a look at the A1 near De Lutte on a regular day. Almost every truck is Eastern European. I once saw a Moldovan car btw, but that was in Slovakia.

I can see Estonian trucks everytime I drive the motorway through my city. It's a popular route to Scandinavia and Northern Eastern Europe.

The most interesting areas are around consulates and embassies. Apart from those, Icelandic plates are pretty rare. I've never seen Albanian or Montenegran cars here.

well, consulates and embassies usually use CMD plates so i don't find them too interesting.
about Montenegrian plates - i also haven't yet seen new ones. and maybe you saw them, but haven't noticed because they were equal as Serbian.

curiosity - i have really rarely seen Greek plates

I saw some Bahraini plates in Chamonix last year... From major European countries, I don't think I saw any Norwegian ones in my travels, or maybe I didn't recognize them.
