We got some really warm weather, I am not sure how hot it was but I reckon it was probably about 35/6 last 2 days, yesterday on a journey back to SK it was 34C near Šibenik at 9:00 AM then a few km further in the moutains it was just 25C, 2 hrs later in Zagreb it was 31C and finally 30C at 6:00 PM in Bratislava. Today at 4:00 PM it was also about 30C in BA and 2hrs later in Strečno Pass and Martin it was just 22C!

Weird how weather can be so different in such a small countries if you travel to the coastal/lowland/mountainious areas.

It's amazing. Any source? Why they do that? How it was discovered?

I'm will be doing a little roadtrip next week and I have some questions for you:
  1. Can tolls in Croatia be payed with € and/or credit card? Do petrol stations accept € and/or credit card for refueling in HR?
  2. I will go on Zagreb - Ljubljana motorway. Where should I stop and buy the Slovenian vignette?
  3. Is there a toll for parking in the city-centers of Zagreb and Ljubljana? How is the payment done?

Thank you

[QUOTE=bogdymol;83111925]I'm will be doing a little roadtrip next week and I have some questions for you:[LIST=1][*]Can tolls in Croatia be payed with € and/or credit card? yes (American, Master, Diners, Visa - all accepted everywhere)
Do petrol stations accept € and/or credit card for refueling in HR? € - officially not, but somewhere they will accept it. cards - yes.
[*]I will go on Zagreb - Ljubljana motorway. Where should I stop and buy the Slovenian vignette? booth at the border crossing - you cannot miss it. or first petrol station in Slovenia - nobody's gonna fine you for those 800 metres. you can buy it at all Petrol gas stations in Croatia
[*]Is there a toll for parking in the city-centers of Zagreb and Ljubljana? How is the payment done? Zagreb - yes, in almost whole city. you have those payment machines at each parking lot where you insert coins and get a ticket which you put on visible place in your car. in garages you take entrance card and pay at booth at exit to cashier boy, or you pay it on machine before getting into car, and just insert anulled ticket at machine while exiting[/qoute]

you're welcome

Thank you for your fast answer x-type.

One more thing: I noticed on this website that the motorways I will be traveling in Croatia, Slovenia and Austria have some tunnels (some even 100 m short). This tunnels have different speed limits (110, 100 or even ridiculously 80 km/h). My question is: which is the speed buffer in this countries? For example, in my country you can get fined only if you drive [speed limit]+10 km/h.

I won't drive very fast and I will try to obey the speed limits, but it might happen to not notice one (for example at that 100 m long (or short ) tunnel).

It is possible, if you can use make payment just by credit card so you ll aviod of these massive traffic jams with people who want to pay by "gotovina". On Saturday we nearly end up in one of these but then I have realised that I heard it is quicker if you pay by credit card. It took us probably about 5 mins, if we paid by cash I reckon it would be like 1/2 hrs.

It's ok. Even though they are Romanian it dosen't mean that the entire population of the country is like that

Thank you for the answer about HR tolls.

Yeah of course, but you know there are people who just like to mention every bad thing and want to make you a nation of gypsies and criminals. Actually people (even) in Slovakia think that Romanians=Gypsies.

That's alright.

That's why some villages are still romantic after communists ruined Slovak countryside -

They even get Romanian TV!

I'm sure more than 80% of Italians think that "Rom" is just an abbreviation for "Romanian".
