  1. Nie podoba się Moderatorom mój komentarz po niemiecku, ani po angielsku, więc będzie po polsku. Ponad 1000 lat zakłamujecie Polską historię i nawet teraz dowód w postaci linku nie przepuszczacie. To się nazywa hipokryzja, żeby nie napisać dosadniej. Na polskich stronach znajduje się wykaz ponad 400 zamków, oraz ponad 2000 pałaców, popartych pięknymi zdjęciami.

  2. Right, Poland has more then 400 castles, so thats a lie: “There is no country in the world has so many castles.”

  3. not nice to lie, in Poland is 419 castles and palaces 2021, and other nations? After all, in the Czech Republic is more than 200

  4. Phi – w Polsce jest więcej Zamków, a poza tym to Niemcy pochodzą od nas – więc te zamki budowali na ich ziemiach SŁOWIANIE!!!

  5. What would you expect from the nation who has stolen even the name of their own country? Nothing but lies. Geramia was located on the lands of Slavs.
    By the way, Poland has more castles.

  6. Yes “fact” 7 is obviously false, but so is “fact” 4. China has had the printing technology since Bi Sheng (990–1051 AD) invented it, and the first mention of an actual book printed is also from China – Wang Zhen’s Nong Shu of 1313 AD.
