I have been to both Serbia and FYROM and they do NOT look like their signs. Kosovo has conducted its own new road signs and all signs are usually blue with a white background where as Serbian and FYROM usually have yellow backgrounds and typical 1970's style signs. Kosovo's have all been replaced. As for Albania, I am not sure because I have never been to Albania but I am pretty sure they use Italian model road signs.


PS: Kosovo will start to build the Durres Prishtina highway this spring!

How were the old signs in Kosovo anyway? Also bilingual, like now? (and if so: latin or cyrillic Serbian). Unfirtunately i have never been to Kosovo (together with Serbia the only part of the former YU where I have never been), so I really have no idea

They were all similar to all former yugo republics as you would expect but Kosovo was the least invested region so we never enjoyed any autobahns or even expressways... After the war... Everything changed and the Kosovo government started investing and now we already have a few expressways and are now building 2 or 3 autobahns I think. All road signs were changed after the war. As for cyrilic, I think they were latin Serbian and today the road signs are still bilingual as Serbian is the second official language in Kosovo.

I just quoted you above claiming that they were more similar to FYROM and Serbia which ofcourse is untrue. No hard feelings. Having actually been to Croatia myself a few times, I would say the kosovo road signs are very similar to that of Croatia's.

I donīt understand you?!
Signs in Croatia are generally the same as in all other exYU republics, so if they are similar to the one from Kosovo... you get the picture.

I've got the impression that some new signs look similar to German ones. But there's no rule, because there's a big mess of all the signage, even with new signs.

Balkan scheme, Balkan (+Swiss and Belgian) font:

A mess of several fonts on one sign:




This one looks German to me:

Now we are changing words here, we were talking about current Serbia and FYROM, not Yugoslavia... Don't worry, I know, every speed limit sign in Serbia to begin with has a yellow background. Most roads in Serbia and Montenegro and FYROM all have yellow side horizontal lines painted on the roads.

here are some examples! This is Serbian and ex Yugo road signs...








You have to be pretty mad to state Kosovo signs look similar to that of Serbia!

Now you believe me?

those are not signs from Serbia, but from Republika Srpska and the last one i guess from Istanbul.
And you must be crazy to state that signs in Kosovo are like Croatian and not like Serbian and generally Croatian and Serbian are the same.
You have the same color scheme:
green=motorway
blue=expressway
yellow=all other roads
And it is like that in all exYU.

example motorway:
Slovenia





Croatia



BiH



Serbia
two scripts





Macedonia



You can see these colors... so signs have the same logic and the same scheme.

as you can see these signs are telling as that there are no rules apparently, all different fonts and mistakes like Peč it is not Peć and if it is Serbian than it is not Skopje, but Skoplje. I donīt know is it impossible to find in Internet if nothing else correct way to write those towns.
Ant that foto from Pristina it is expresway so blue fits there.

So here you can see white lines and white backgrounds. Yellow was the standard in YU and now it has been changed everywhere.

I believe the only European countries with yellow markings are Greece (sometimes), Macedonia and Finland.

Macedonia is not yellow anymore, all new markings are white. As you can see here

I believe some roads in Norway have yellow markings.

All roads in Norway except motorways (that is, 99% of all roads) use yellow to separate traffic in opposite directions. Smaller roads that don't technically have two separate lanes don't use a divider and have broken white lines at the edges.
