Driving across Eastern Europe

<< < (2/2)

AvHdB:
Because you are an automotive guy, but not exactly an answer to your question, but you might want to seen if the HERO group rallies are interesting.

They run a recreation of the Peking to Paris rally and a number of other events in Eastern Europe. As well as an event in California I suspect now cancelled or pushed back to 2021

The Temple to Temple rally sounds very interesting and I believe includes Croatia.

I made 2 roadtrips through Poland/Ukraine to Crimea.

See my signature line & happy reading.

I wouldn't recommend driving through eastern Europe unless you like adventure.

Moby meant UNLIKELY and has worn the t-shirt a LOT more recently than you ..Nov / Dec 2017  .. As soon as the Police see they're stopping a foreign car, they'll wave you on ...

Your original quote didn't mention foreign registered.

My experience in Russia is driving Russian registered cars. And in those you do get stopped at check points on the edges of towns. What you said is incorrect. What you meant and later clarified may be true.

Given Justadude asked about driving across Western Europe TO Moscow, I made the assumption it would be a temporary import ..  sorry if I wasn't clearer

I have NEVER been stopped when entering or leaving Sochi, or any RU town in either a UK or RU registered car since 2006 .. That USED to be a common thing and even now, it isn't .. ( in Krasnodar Region ) There are cameras everywhere and the Police know who they want to stop long before you arrive !

I referred to random stop and checks and have been waved down several times when traversing RU .. but on sighting that non RU plate ( tag?) , one just gets waved on .

Steveboy:
I think you will find the roads in much of Eastern Europe better than the Uk at least!

Christ I wouldn't want to even think about driving across the UK unless I had a tank!! :ROFL:
