Haha, that's so cool. I guess all were made artificially when all this land was taken away from the sea?

There are some military locations where you can only see a blur like that. In Belgium, however, some military airfields are clearly visible.

It's fortress. Such "star" pattern is usual for fortresses in Habsburg Empire from era of Ottoman Wars. But, I guess it's common in whole Europe.

This is another one - fortress Leopoldov (since 1855 it's prison though): http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=4...19312&t=h&z=16

Anyone planning to visit Motor Show in Geneva in March? Google says that I should go from my city to Prague => Nurnberg => Basel.. is that a good idea instead of going through Munchen?

I think München is a bit off the usual route, since Germany lacks some east-westroutes in extreme southwestern Germany.

i'd prefer route via München, Bregenz and Zürich. i thought that maybe via Žilina, Bratislava and Wien it would be even shorter, but it is not.

Yeah, Palmanova also looks cool, gotta go there once, but I like the wide canal around the center of Zwolle, so it's an island; the canal around Palmanova is very narrow.


As for Ostrava - Geneva: it's 15 km more over Basel than Munich, but it might be better. There's a few kms of motorway missing between Munich and Bregenz, and also between Austria and Switzerland, not to mention you may drive faster in Germany than in CH. But it depends on when you'll be in Basel. You don't wanna find yourself there in rush hours, although you can also bypass it via Rheinfelden. I also suggest driving a bit further than Bregenz (if you'll choose that route), to Lustenau. And do NOT speed in Switzerland, cause radars are everywhere! Particularly famous is the one just south(west) of Härkingen, the western junction of A1×A2, on a straight motorway, with general speed limit of 120 km/h, but once it was just 80 km/h, just for them to get some money. Oh, there are also at least 7 (!) radars on the 50 km between Lausanne and Geneva. I visited the motor show three years ago, you'll like it.

yeah, i wanted to mention it, it is perfect! and there are few more in northern Italy.
in Croatia the most known "star" city is Karlovac, althought that star is not so clear anymore, bu you can see it at google earth.

What the **** is going on here, I almost can´t post, almost always I get the message the server is too busy at the moment. Is it only me or does the server not operate properly lately so that I can´t post in the forum for more than a week already.
