Thanks for working on my page... I may transform Broumovské into an area as well to keep it coherent.

Otherwise I protest against the thread title change. You close the door to many interesting posts !

Thanks for making me visit the Broumov Walls in the end :D I'd never been there before. But Koruna in your photo made me wonder.

Well, the door may be closed but it's not locked :wink: But I do think a separate Balkans thread - in English - is needed. If I were more mobile, I'd open it myself. And you're just back from Croatia, and there are more Polish/Hungarian/Romanian SP'ers interested in the Balkans, and it seems that only Kamil speaks some Serbian so he can participate in the "former Yugoslavia" thread.

I disagree 100%. We're not so many on SP, we're actually less and less I have the feeling. Anyone noticed ? (the speed issue from the last months is surely for something in it). Mountains of SE always have fascinated mountaineers of NE, countless Poles, Czech, and so on drive south to visit something a bit else. Kamil is the best ambassador of these people. And people from SE Europe keen in mountaineering often push the exploration until our Tatras.
I think there is something positive shared by all eastern countries connected to the "mountaineering culture", that I don't find in my home mountains aseptized by individualism and service-to-customer oriented relationship. Been recently in a mountain hut in Croatia, and the way it was decorated and venerated, the magic inside, the way people behave, everything reminded me very much about the Tatras huts, something a bit like the PTTK culture. A kind magic that pulls young people to the mountains for the simple reason they're fascinated by them. In France, young people want to ski, to paraglide, to rock-climb, otherwise why the hell going to tops of mountains, only retired people hike ! I don't know if you see what I mean. For all these reasons I think this thread should remain as it was. It's more than a geography, it's a matter of mountain culture and from this point of view it makes one entity.

Andrea and Lodowy have a common point: always looking at the mountains instead of the photographer !
