To be done[edit]

Castles, palaces[edit]

Silesia was mainly inhabited by Germans for many centuries until they were expelled in 1945. So why don`t you use the German names of historical buildings,too. The obvious intention seems to be to push German history and culture into oblivion.-- (talk) 20:16, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
