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.

Exact triplex location

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.

Re: Exact triplex location

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.

Valuable map..

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

Everybody knows it's Kraków. Am I right?
