Use of Arial font made me suspicious, because Italy uses different font on traffic signs.

Maybe because they live far away from Slovakia and they kept original Slovak. Favourite color of Slovaks here is blue (houses, gates, women's dresses).

I drove through those villages a lot of times, but everytime I like to "read" (in my mind) their names in all 3 languages when I see that sign while driving.

From above:

Reason is that all these language are in use in city administration.
My favorite without any doubt.

It was probably renamed during commies' times and only Hungarian name remained original.

True, it's one of the rare cities that changed it's name and it was done because it was called Petrovgrad before after King Peter I. Zrenjanin is the last name of Žarko Zrenjanin, a partisan. Hungarian name didn't have to be changed because it wasn't a problem Big Becskerek, that's all, but Petrovgrad had to go. Zrenianin and Zreňanin shouldn't be used IMO because it's a mockery. It's a last name and there is no historic different spelling or something. Becicherecul Mare would make sense, but apparently local Romanians don't use that anymore. It's a good will anyway, because Romanians make up only 0.83% of the city population. Hungarian population is bigger, but that's mostly because in the 1970s a nearby Hungarian village Muzlja was merged with Zrenjanin.

Classic McDonalds mistake in Scotland. Not even bilingual: monolingual, in a language that nobody can understand (there are more people in Scotland that speak Urdu than Gaelic).
