Is the Dinarc Alps really taller than the Netherlands?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/16168365/This study contributes to an update of average heights among European populations. Our investigation covering 2705 boys and 2842 girls aged 17 years, shows that, contrary to the general belief, adolescents of the Dinaric Alps are, on average, the tallest in Europe. With an average height of 185,6 cm, they are taller than Dutch adolescents (184 cm on average). Above all, the density of very tall subjects appears to be characteristic of the Dinaric Alps, since 28% measure 190 cm or more in height, as opposed to only 20% in Holland and 1.5% in France. Although our information is not complete, adolescent girls in the Dinaric Alps, with an average height of 171 cm come a close second to girls in Holland.

Many people say they are. I don't believe that the average Montenegrin youth is 6'1" though. It might be so in the tallest area but not in the whole nation. They say that 28% are around 6'3" or more... in other words, 28% are around Chris Hemsworth's height or taller according to this study. I call BS.

I'm with you. They're very tall no doubt but a 6'1 average is way too much even for young men. I think they're self-reported.
