Probably for never-built conveyor belt between rock quarry and large cement factory on the other side.

There is also a similar bridge over existing railway, built before 2. world war for new Ljubljana-Zagreb main road (which was never built in that corridor).

(second picture, does not allow deep linking)

It is located here:

Interesting (and sad enough), although overpass for new road was built over 70 years ago, today's main road still uses level crossing.

Yes, it is.


As for Harry Potter, I'm not a fan of it or anything, I'm just interested, if you also have weird "translations" of characters in your languages. I'd understand, if we had Slovenian-sounding "translations" (ok, Harry Potter is Harry Potter), but listen to this:

- Voldemort (original (English)) = Mrlakenstein ("Slovenian")
- Severus Snape = Robaus Raws
- Rubeus Hagrid = Ruralus Hagrid
- Minerva McGonagall = Minerva McHudurra
- Filius Flitwick = Columbus Colibri
- Remus Lupin = Remus Wulf
- Peter Pettigrew = Marius Mally
- Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody = Alastor "Noruč" Nergga
- Draco Malfoy = Dreco Malfoy
- Gilderoy Lockhart = Slatan Sharmer
- Nymphadora Tonks = Fatale Tanga
- Professor Quirrell = Profesor Smottan
- Rita Skeeter = Rita Brentsell
- Dobby = Trapets
- Peeves = Zhopernack
- Dolores Umbridge = Kalvara Temyna
- Luna Lovegood = Loona Liupka
- Horace Slughorn = Limax Hudlagod
- Mundungus Fletcher = Tobakarolus Smrat
- Pomona Sprout = Pomona Ochrowt
- Bellatrix Lestrange = Krasotilya L'Ohol
- Ollivander = Olchenbat
- Kreacher = Spack
- Cornelius Fudge = Cornelius Schushmaar
- Kingsley Shacklebolt = Krallek Kehomet
- Rufus Scrimgeour = Rufus Tepeshkar

http://sl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Potter

Seriously.

As far as I know things aren't translated into Portuguese, but I've only read it in English. They might translate for the Brazilian Portuguese editions though.

Edit:

No change of surnames, some change of first in Brazil

Don't write the name of You-Know-Who (In Spanish "Quién tú sabes"), please! It's really bad for ours. (Or at least they say)

BTW, I remember a town of Israel included its cemetery in its touristic attractions. There are tons of soldiers dead on the battle, but one of them was named... Harry Potter.

No, they don't want to give out the name... in the first movie, of course.
