Possible features include tiled wallpaper, fake fire places and marble painted frames.
IV Where lies Kakanien?
V In Croatia they say Galeb, in Poland Maxi Kaz, Papagal is the name in Romania, and in Kakanien they were called Kurschatten. What is it all about?
VI Which well-known brand is described by the following phrases:

(An ultimate hint, needless to say, is that the term you are looking for is also the translation of “rumours” into the Polish language.)
