Apart from this we have other roads that don't start or finish in Budapest, they have their own "0km" at their beginning (not marked specificly), I think we should make a distinction between the two, because I see pictures that are just the beginning of a single road and the 0 km/mi doesn't apply to the whole country

The kilometre zero of the main Spanish roads is located in Madrid's Puerta del Sol. The stone was restored 2 years ago:

These six national roads were created in 1720 as paths where cavalry was stationed every few miles.

This is their route through Madrid, from the Puerta del Sol to another six Puertas (gates) of the old town:

For Sydney, it's actually from an obelisk in Macquarie Place, off Bridge Street and a couple of blocks to the north of the GPO.



However, the Sydney UBD street directory appears to use the GPO as kilometre 0 (in multiples of 2 along main roads).

In Italy there's a famous proverb saying "All roads lead to Rome".

But I think that in Rome there isn't any KM 0!

We don't have a kilometre zero in Slovenia, and our main railways are still measured from Belgrade.

Italian roads that starts in Rome (SS1 to SS8) have their km 0 at Campidoglio.
Only exception is the SS2, that starts at Ponte Milvio.
