Indeed, we in the Romanian community prefer a semi-manual import to 
clean the images in the process too.

There is the "new version" of the same tool which work on sets: 

You will still need to edit the image pages after the upload and add the 
monument IDs.

As a side-note, I checked one of the sets, 
http://www.flickr.com/photos/megavas/sets/72157631293508324/ and there 
the license is still proprietary, not CC-BY-SA, an import attempt will fail.
