Overizcht van het Karpaten - gebergte dat van Polen tot ver in Roemenië loopt.
The arch of the Carpathian Mountains across central Europe on an indexed road map from Huber Verlag with on the reverse extensive tourist and historical information including a list of UNESCO World Heritage sites, etc. All the text is in English.
With Budapest, Vienna, Kraków and Lviv on the north-western and northern edges of the map, coverage extends south to Belgrade, the Danube Iron Gate National Park and Bucharest. Topography is indicated by relief shading, with graphics for swamps/marshlands and colouring for the forested areas. The map shows the network of main, secondary and selected other roads, with driving distances on main routes. Also shown are petrol stations, rest areas with overnight facilities, and border crossings. Railway lines are included and local airports are marked. Symbols highlight cultural heritage including UNESCO World Heritage sites, the region’s characteristic wooden churches, recreational areas, etc. Place names in the Ukraine and Serbia are in the Latin alphabet. The map has latitude and longitude lines at 1° intervals and an extensive index.
The reverse side is taken with text, maps and photos illustrating various aspects of the region: a list and map showing UNESCO World Heritage sites, information about the region’s characteristic wooden churches, Dacian fortresses, Transylvanian place names, fauna, etc. (One small complaint from the Polish heart of the writer of this description: why has Poland’s highest peak, Rysy, been included from the list of mountains over 1500 meters?!). Map legend and all the text are in English.
