Various explanations of the anomalous proton to pion ratio at the LHC are discussed. The special emphasis is set on the Cracow thermal model with single freezeout. This model allows to get a good agreement for both the mean hadron multiplicities and the spectra. Moreover, the values of the fit parameters indicate the possibility of pion Bose condensation in the most central collisions at the LHC. Therefore, a modification of the thermal framework is proposed that explicitly allows for the condensation in the ground state. The generalised model makes a link between equilibrium and nonequilibrium thermal models. It also suggests that the pion condensation may be formed in the central collisions.
