Peter The Great!

Hey, that's a huge effort. Impressive interactive maps. And I like the idea of geological division into those 'belts'.

In the transport/travel section it may be worth adding that in our part of Europe train ticket prices often get sky-high when you're crossing a border, so it may be a lot cheaper to buy separate tickets to and from the border and cross it on foot :)

Re: Peter The Great!

Dzieki, Kamil! I see you also have got some "precious" experience with cross-border train tickets :) I will think about how to word this issue politely... In fact there is even more to it (like according to H. railways, the HU/RO border can turn out to be about 40-50 km west compared to where it is on maps... etc.)

A very useful

and well done work - needed on SP and strange that it had been missing!
How long did you work on it?

Re: A very useful

Danke! Yes, I was surprised not to see such coverage about the area. The idea of filling this gap was born about 4 months ago - since then I have been collecting and compiling information and now arrived to the point when the work could be made public :)

super page

This is great, and obviously represents a lot of work. Thanks for doing it.

In light of some discussions on the forum, I wonder if you could identify some wilderness areas that are farthest from any road? Ideally I'd love to find some in Slovakia, though I suspect that Romania may be the best bet.

Re: super page

Thanks, Arthur. Well, it depends where you draw the line. Do rarely used dirt roads count? Anyhow, the least inhabited areas are to be found in the Southern Carpathians and in the NE, in Máramaros (Southern Zakarpattya, UA, and Maramures county, RO). Slovakia has less "far-from-the-road" areas and they are smaller. But they are worth to visit nonetheless.

Re: Hi Peter!!

Dziekuje! :) Fresh satellite images (mostly of Transylvania) are regularly published on - some more of those (text in Hungarian, sorry): autumn colors, summer, summer clouds spring clouds and snow and the one I used, showing the whole C. Basin.

Re: Congratulations...

time... I don't have any, at the moment, for new pages on SP.
I'll try to write again in January.

Outstanding job

You can bet I will be using this information when I return to the Tatry.

Re: Outstanding job

Thanks, I'm glad you also think it's useful. Concerning the Tatry, check out the High Tatras page as well, thanks to its owner, palic, I could put some additional info there recently.
