you should

Attach it tho the Carpathians page, no ?
There is also a "churches in mountains" album, perhaps as "related" ?

Re: you should

Thanks for reminding me. And I didn't actually realize there's the "related" option - thanks!

Re: Jacku,..

Thanks! But I just sorted out mostly Eric's pix a little, and imposed some harsh rules autocratically. Please just have a look at the comments here :-) and here - there are TWO other albums in the series!

Wow, I just found this page! Excellent! And I added two photos about two 18th century wooden churches: one from Poland, another one from Romania

Re: Wow

Thanks for your comment and contribution. I've changed the layout recently - it seems that we agree the page looks better now. :)

Re: Wow

Hi Jacek, Now I added another photo from Apuseni. If you insert it into the proper paragraph, then the number of Apuseni churches can be doubled on the page (from 1 to 2)
Cheers, Szani

Re: Wow

Thanks, Szani! BTW I wonder if you could remove one of your comments.:)
