This is why this motorway is so important - industry and business zones are starting to grow along the A1:

Normally, this would be a bad situation... but in our case it was a winning situation... in the next (and last) part of this journey...

...because we got a chance to take this (white) magnificent road above Sv. Rok tunnel (with 7km queue before it) over Mali Alan pass and Tulove grede on the Velebit mountain...

View over the Sv. Rok tunnel south portal:




The same service area (Marune) where we began our photoset:



Or if you prefer




We continue up




Again, from a different perspective

Aaaand, this would be it, from Sv. Rok to Sv. Rok in 6 days, exactly on the holiday of St. Rok

Here is a picture for the end, taken from the road to Mali Alan. Hope you enjoyed!

Very nice, snupix! I planned to do such a trip myself... but now, there is no need for that! Thanks!
I immagine you have ZG Croatian plates. Was it scary to get through some places... for exemple Trebinje?

Between Siatista and Kastoria towards Albanian border. Than you go to Korce in Albania and than to Tirana via Elbasan. A Greek motorway from Grevena via Trikala to Lamia is going to connect Tirana and Athens over the shortest route. So, also Croatia and Athens. It is shorter than via the Adriatic-ionian route.

So I thought. But it seems a bit early to build that since Albania is still far from building that motorway, and the road between Korce and Pogradec is, I guess, not perfect.

What an amazing effort. One of the best threads that I've viewed in a long time (one that pertains to Balkan motorways). Great scenery and landscape. It seems that Albania has the worst roads, and seeing sheep and cows on main roads is absolutely shocking, same with that donkey in Montenegro. It's good that situation in AP KiM is improving as well.
To fully accomplish your Balkan journey, hopefully we'll get to see another trip of yours more eastwards (Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia).

PS. Don't make me go back looking for it, what camera did you use again?

Tnx... I'd like to do a trip to the East. I'm especially interested in RO&BG infrastructure (bc. Serbian infra. looks similar like the rest of the exYu so i know what to expect). And never been there, so...

Albania has the worst roads, but I was really surprised how good they are actually, much much much better than I expected. It's really developing fast and once they finish the main roads, tourism industry will definitely boom, especially in the beautiful south... We have to remember, 15 years ago they had nothing, absolutely nothing.

Sheep and cows were fun, but it wasn't really problematic or dangerous... And it happened only a few times, the ones caught on the camera...

The camera was Nikon D80 + Nikkor 18-70 lens, except on the last pictures from above Sv. Rok, that one was Panasonic FZ18
