Over the past few weeks i was getting myself ready to use JOSM for the largest, biggest scale work i have ever done on this website. The district of Riekava. (i was very impatient to share it with you guys)
This region is my favourite in Litvania. Best enjoyed at zoom level 13. Below is some information on this area.
Forests - They cover the majority of the region.
Mountains - The region is home to the Svetovidly (world-viewer/seeker) mountains.
Wilderness - Wild streams, gently sloping valleys and calm villages and towns are all commonplace here. Also, the soil here, is well not very fertile so animal agriculture is more common than anything.
Wateeeeeeer! - This area is the most dense in watersheds in Litvania.
Eastern Wildlife Refuge - The second largest of its kind in Litvania, and a very popular camping area, though only in designated places.
Regional Dish - I am yet to come up with something, but i guess it will either be a soup or a lamb meat dish.
Language - The Litvanian spoken here is very different to the Loravian (standard) Litvanian. People tend to emphasize vowels.
Places worth seeing
Dvojtín Castle - A wonderful castle overlooking the confluence of the Riekava and Hornava rivers, surrounded by the ancient market town of Dvojtín.
Hornava - An medieval castle and church were built here, which led many religious Litvanians to travel here, which led the town increasing in size steadily over the centuries. It is a popular spot for believers worldwide.
v. n. Riekava - Though artificial, this is a wonderful freshwater lake where swimming is allowed, so it is a nice place to go during the weekend. If you were curious, "v. n." stands for "vodná nádrž", Litvanian for "water reservoir".
This is the format i will use to present my work in the future.
This is my first fully JOSM place, so i am a bit worried. Anyways i love it! Any suggestions? Comments? Thing to improve? Let me know!
