Thanks. Looks like these sites are confined to Poland and Slovakia. Are you intending to expand the coverage?

Nice!

If I can make two suggestions:

- if You expand, don't go Wales, or anywhere West, it's quite well covered. Stay in Central and Eastern Europe, it's the part we "others" know less ( cause "Iron-curtain, "strange" languages, You see what I mean ...).

-I saw You have pics, plans, drawings, but the text is in Polish on the English version too. If You have the time, putting the English. I know, it's alot of work, but I sincerely think it would rise the value of Your site.

Anyway, keep up the good work, I liked what I saw, and I already bookmarked it!

Looks very nice.
One nitpick. If you put an enter to start a new paragraph make it two. Makes reading easier.

Btw since the site looks so nice, you may want to look into some money making , by getting some advertisers for hotels. It won't make you a millionaire, but some bucks for the effort is fair. Certainly there is a surge in tourism within Europe and with some specific keywords on your site you could get some advertisers.

I know Wales is well covered but I have tons of plans and reconstructions and this is poor on other sites, besides, also almost no one deals with churches, houses and other medieval buildings except of castles, I would like to change it

regarding the translation of captions under photos, this is a problem because wordpress has it hopelessly solved, it is related to the mass of work, I have to decide: new countries or further translations

One tip: Place a big photo on top of each monument. People are drawn to images.

thanks for the entries and new ideas, they are certainly worth introducing, unfortunately as it is a one-man project, it's hard with so many subpages with time
