Beyond Map & Time
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.

A video (unfortunately in Polish) about this nook and a Wincenty Pol trail:

Many, many thanks to this extremely precious map. So, it means, the exact T location is about 2 km S of Hnatasia, which corresponds to a real terrain observation (R9) square in Vaser Valley map.

Have you clicked the "WIG" above? The collection is absolutely amazing, the same goes for the quality of the images. And I stumbled upon it just last night.

But.. you don't have to be Polish to see
the proper spelling: "Kraków!"

Everybody knows it's Kraków. Am I right?
