How long is YOUR street name field?

I was walking down the main street of Bihać, Bosnia, as one does, and I noted the street name:

You'd think this was long enough for a street name, but the sign actually contains abbreviations. To write this street name in full would take 89 characters. It could be correctly abbreviated to 20 characters, but would you know how? In how many ways might this street name be written? I may be more than a little weird, but I love this kind of diversity in addressing!
