This was Poland's southeast end before World War II. For several hundred years until late C18,
three countries met near the summit of Hnitessa/Hnatasia (at 1769m), namely the:
Kingdom of Hungary (to the west of Hnatasia),
Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (to the north) and
Principality of Moldavia (to the east).
This map was made in 1932 (2nd, hiker's edition 1938) by WIG, i.e. the Polish Military Geographic Institute.
