Hi Malgo,


I wasn't sure Meteora was the second picture in the top row.
Mycenae I should have recognized.
I cannot find Skopje in the collage and Arachova is unknown to me.

All the best!...

Thank you Gert,

Thank you Gert,


So far I've never heard of Moder Svea ...
I do remember Kartlis Deda (Mother of Georgia) and Mayr Hayastan (Mother Armenia).
No, we have no Mother Belgium.

To mkamionka: Too small

Thank you Mariusz,


The beguinage is much too small to get lost.
