Geocache Description:

[CZ] Romanticke lesni rybniky v polesi Kokotsko
[EN] Romantic ponds in Kokotsko woodland



Nazev oblasti Kokotsko pochazi ze staroceskeho slova kokot, neboli kohout, a to pry podle blizkeho kopcoviteho hrebene, pripominajiho kohouti hrebinek. Mimochodem stejny slovni puvod ma i slovo koktat (kokotat), a muzeme slyset podobnost i s anglickym vyrazem pro kohouta "cock" nebo francouzskym "coq".

Puvodne se na tomto miste nachazela stejnojmenna ves, sidlo vladyku z Kokota. Ta ale byla vyplenena a vypalena v husitskych dobach pri valecnem tazeni, udajne proto, ze zde podle povesti byl ukryty poklad, ktery chtela vojska ziskat - bezvysledne.

Rybniky zalozili pocatkem 16.stoleti zemani ze Smedcic, a pote je vykoupilo mesto Plzen, ktere tu chtelo vytvorit soustavu rybniku podobnou bolevecke. Rybnicna soustava sestavala ze tri rybniku a asi dvou manipulacnich nadrzi. Do dneska se zachovaly pouze rybniky dva, horni a dolni, ale polohu prostredniho rybnika, zanikleho asi pred sto lety, muzete videt napr. na historickych mapach.

V okolnim polesi se tez naleza mohylové pohrebiste, zahrnující 12 mohyl o prumeru až 20 metru a výšce 2 m pochazejici z obdobi halstatske mohylove kultury.
