Nice collection

of - as it seems - historic photos of a quite unknown or mystical area. I'd like to see a photo of Zimna Dziura.

Re: Nice collection

Yes.Like fairyland.I took these photos this year and scanned them.
Are you interested in caving too?.Well Zimna dziura cave ("Cold hole") isn't big at all. Maybe 25 m long.I haven't got pictures of it because I haven't got flesh :(.But I am fond of caves too and I have just built little cave in my garden.Of course full of stalactites and so on.(and have some pictures of it.
Thanks for voting, Wlado

Re: Nice collection

I've grown up in the Franconian Jura (NE of Nuremberg in Bavaria) where there are quite a lot of nice caves in the limestone (several 100m long and/or several dozens of m deep). I enjoyed diving beneath the earth mainly during winter, in other seasons I preferred climbing.
But the idea of a self-digged cave in the garden is cute!
