Yes, fun, that's why I'm here!
But I'm still surprised!
I understand that White Croats left what was recently called Halychyna
(Galicia)-SE Poland/W Ukraine, but didn't think this area went west of about
Cracow. Croats from Bohemia? Is this thought to be the origin of the Red
Also , from where south did Slavs enter Bohemia? I have heard of
