Via Ferrata caches in Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden.

I am not aware of VF caches in Albania, Belarus, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Gibraltar, Latvia, Macedonia, Moldova, Malta, Serbia, Portugal, Ukraine, UK, Vatican. Some of these countries will never have one, but some I might have just missed. Also new caches are likely to emerge in the future.

Please, help me complete and keep up to date this list!
Please, send me information about European via ferrata caches that are missing from here! Corrections are also welcome. Thank you.
