Congratulations

Thank you Snupix for providing us an in-depth overview of the whole infrastructural-tourist-economical overview of the "Western balkans". One of the best photo diaries I've ever seen. SO many new backgroud info: Pevec chain in Macedonia, VIp.
I had the feeling of travelling fo only 60 Mb

Did you write an essay (English or Croatian) about your impressions? Any kind? Will you publish it somewhere?

came in this thread few weeks ago and pics were missing... after i was avoiding it knowing it would take me hours to look all this
and now i've seen them all... magnificent trip... well done...
i always wanted to go south toward our neighbors, but never really had the chance... now these pictures serve me as excuse to delay my trip even longer
but i sure hope of going down there some time in future...

well done Arno

Amazing pictures. Thanks so much for sharing them with us. I would love to do a road trip from Slovenia all the way down to Macedonia.
Not so much for the roads, but to see the whole region. I've been everywhere in the world but never around the 'old country'.
Thanks again.

Seagull, that motorway is supposed to bypass the canyon, but it won't be much easier. Almost a half of the first 50 km section is to be tunnels/bridges. It's planned to be built first, as it removes a serious bottleneck, both in the summer (traffic) and winter (unpredictable weather). But the current road will become an awesome scenic drive with all trucks and heavy traffic gone.
Thanks. It is going to be interesting.
But I'm personally more interested in the Adriatic-ionian motorway. What about that?

Why? What happened exactly? Fire ?

Where was this forest, on the sea side or the inland?

I hope the scenery around Makarska is still intact!

Yes, a disastrous wild fire a few days ago almost reached the town itself. The town was defended but unfortunately the scenery has been radically changed.

As you can imagine, there's no point in having that one built before Croatia nears the completion of her part, as it doesn't do much for local traffic within Montenegro (unlike the north-south route). But some activities are underway, and from what I have heard, once construction starts, it should be completed fairly quickly. It has to be built in one piece to make any sense, and, surprisingly, the corridor is quite favorable, at least compared to the north-south motorway. It remains to be seen whether it would go through Bosnia as initially planned, or directly to Croatia.

Fier-Lushnje road almost finished.



Albania is too pre-occupied with building Durres-Kukes motorway but i think Adriatic-Ionian Motorway should be our governments priority. This area links the most beautiful parts of Western Balkans.
