Besides, I lived near Nijmegen and went to school in Nijmegen, and I hardly heard anyone (except Germans) referring to the city as Nimwegen. I don't say it's never used, but it's not really common imho.

A trilangual road sign in Sukhumi, the capital of Abkhazia (a disputed territory in Georgia, which declared independance but is only recognized by a handful countries): city names are signed twice in Cyrillic (Abkhazian and Russian) and once in Latin.

When you drive some 15 kilometres to north of Zrenjanin you will come to village of Mihajlovo (Szentmihály in Hungarian).



Just cross the bridge over the DTD Canal and will be at Jankov Most (Iancaid in Romanian).

[/URL]

You will be at the main street of this village, called Zemljoradnička (Peasant street).



This sign is bilingual but Romanian name is written phonetic, instead of translating it.

This is quite interesting, the romanian text is Iancaid, phonetically Janka íd (in slavic transcription), but the syllable "id" comes more likely from hungarian "híd" which means "bridge" (i.e. "most" in most slavic languages), can anyone confirm this?

You are completely right, Serbian version is translation of Hungarian name, while Romanian version is just adapted.

Why not? Our languages have been constantly influencing each other.

I'm sure there's lots more around the town, but those are the ones I photographed.

I didn't known that there was language "'battle) in the east-kantons.

Ofthen, town with origional German names are signed in French, some apparently can't have that and cross out the French name. However, these signs might be like this for over a decade, it's just that no-one replaces them.

It means "Children! Slow!" in German, French and Dutch.

But where's Weywertz?
