San Marino is quite a detour and Liechtenstein from Italy involves some slow roads that are not 2x2. I don't see how you can drive that distance if you also include San Marino and FL.

EDIT: Oh. I stand corrected.

Yeah, that was my first experience in Poland as well, I think it was back in 2000 or 2001. Border crossing didn't take too much time back then though Poland wasn't part of EU or Schengen yet. I was on my way to Liberec with my parents. Our first time in the "new world"

Hmm. The fastest run through 6 countries I did: England, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Poland - 16hrs

A bit longer across 7, about 24hrs: England, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Czech Rep., Poland.

And a short trip Poland, Czech Rep., Slovakia - 20min.

Yeah, it's a normal road, it's the main road from Zittau to Liberec, it just happens to be in Poland for like 1,5 km.

It is a shame you - as a Dutch - know it - I do not

I was pretty certain the polish part of it was just a country road, more suitable for pedestrians or horses than proper traffic in contrast to German and Czech ones built to a high single carriageway standard.

they are building a bypass for Zittau across Poland...

according to maps.google the german (road#178) and czech (road#35) section is ready (the road is drawn but the satimage is not uptodate) but the polish section seems to be not ready yet...

I've also visited 6 countries in a day: Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. But more interesting is that I crossed borders 13 times: SLO-I-A-D-A-FL-CH-A-D-A-D-A-I-SLO.



Add Italy (Tarvisio) in both directions.
