That's why the ski jumping hills are turned east, it's a bit further to the other border




Slovenian vignette problems and solutions


"I've bought Slovenian vignette. Stick it on, please!" - "Oh, I can't peel it off!" - "There you go! I've managed..." - "Where shall I stick it?"





But it's not all a joke. I watched a short documentary from EBU series about life on borders - it was about Slovene fishermen and when they drag a large net behind the boat (sorry, I've no clue about fishing terminology) they can't turn the boat within Slovene territorial waters, so they cross Italian border illegaly and if they're lucky they don't meet any Italian inspectors. At least it was a problem before entering EU. Also if you're flying from southeast to Ljubljana, it's somewhere above Bosnia that you're told to fasten your seatbelt ... And Slovene Army goes often abroad for practice because in Slovenia the artillery can shoot only up to 5 km far.

Slovenia is the only country I've driven in from one part to another without stopping my car for even a second

But I must say... it's a beautiful country. One of the best I've ever been.

New classic of cycling, Tour Slovenije: it's not a stage race but a 1-day one.

You keep the real motive behind this change quiet and come with substitute theme - greenhouse effect.

No sensible person would recomend alternative fuels instead of the fossile fuesl, if the only intention was reducing the greenhouse gases emissions... all the alternative (carbon based) fuels are more greenhouse gas intensive then their petrol alternatives. Thus this cant be the real motive.

The real motive is that our petrol based (carbon) economy has to switch into other source based economy (e.g. hydrogen based). The transition may be really drastic if you dont have alternatives ready to support this transition. Changing the economy from petrol based into another is not just question of switching the engines in the cars... First of all, when oil is scarce, you need the energy to be able to build another sources of energy.

These all sound like jokes to me... except the one about fastening your seatbelt over Bosnia... which speaks more about size of Croatia than Slovenia.

I almost did this in Romania few years ago - from buying a vignette at the hungarian border on the road to Calafat, but stopped for 15 minutes near Iron Gates before Drobeta Turnu Severin... Still it was some hundreds kms and several hours of driving non-stop... And also very tiring too, as roads back then were in very bad condition, some under reconstruction and with removed all pavement and no new applied yet...

I drove through Austria several times without stop, although usually I stop once (I like Mondsee rest area). And of course Slovakia from Rajka to Kúty, it is a quite short drive :-)

Wow... right... I did it once - Austria without stopping in one direction, stopping once at Mondsee in the other.
As a matter of fact, from Hungarian border to Iron Gates it may be looked like the crossing the whole country, as Iron Gates used to be a border-crossing before

taking off from Brnik airport to Paris is quite spectacular in nice weather. In 1st minute after take off you can follow A2 motorway, in 2nd minute you can observe Bohinj and Bled lake, in 3rd minute you are on Triglav and cross the border.

And in the 4th minute you land.
