Geocache Description:

Keska na "Stare" Zivohosti, vhodna pro vyletniky vseho druhu. POZOR! V sezone je v okoli kesky silne zamudleno, vhodny odlov v "okrajovych" hodinach.

[CZ] Prvni pisemna zminka o Zivohosti (tehdy Zivohousti) je jiz z roku 1057. Ve 12. stoleti byla Zivohost knizecim loveckým dvorcem a pobyval zde i Vladislav II. Vesnice se rozkladala na obou brezich Vltavy, ale jeji dominantou byl kostelik sv. Fabiana a Sebestiana, stojici na vysokem, skalnatem ostrohu na levem brehu. Jeho zalozeni je opredeno legendou o zarlivem rytiri, ktery jenom na zaklade neoverene pomluvy nechal svou tehotnou zenu zavrit do sudu a hodit ze skaly do Vltavských vod (a co teprv kdyby ta "pomluva" byla overena?!). Podle povesti zena pad prezila, pristresi nasla v jeskyni ve skale pod nynejsim kostelikem a nedlouho pote privedla na svet dvojcata Fabiana a Sebestiana. Po nekolika prestavbach zde kostelik stoji dodnes, i kdyz se dnes nachazi na brehu slapskeho jezera, vode na dosah, a legendarni jeskynka, vyzdobena soskou vodni panny, je pristupna jen potapecum. Vesnice sama se skryva pod vodou v hloubce kolem triceti metru, k nalezeni jsou zde stale zbytky staveni a ruiny velkeho hotelu, ktery zde kdysi take staval.

V sezone je na Stare Zivohosti zpravidla podstatne klidneji nez na protejsí "Nove", mistni plaz poskytuje misto pro prijemné osvezeni znaveneho kacerstva a pokud zde nemame auto a nechce se nam vracet, muzeme k dalsi ceste vyuzit i privozu nebo sluzeb slapske paroplavby, jejiz pristaviste se nachazi opodal.

Kvuli rozmerum kesky by pripadne predmety na vymenu by mely byt spise mensi.

POZOR - po ztrate v kvetnu 2009 byla keska technicky mirne upravena, takze riziko opakovane ztraty je snad omezeno, ale jde ponekud hure vyndat ze sveho ukrytu. NEBOJTE SE ZABRAT! Rovnez otevreni kesky zatim vyzaduje trochu vic sily - snazte se otvirat tahem za kovovou cast, ne kroucenim za drevenou nebo plastovou. Snad se to casem ochodi jako ta predchozi...

[EN] Zivohuost Cache is located near the church of St. Fabian and Sebestian at Zivohost village. Zivohost (formerly known as Zivohoust) is a small vilage, which was situated at both banks of the Vltava river. Since the 12th century the dominance of the village became a church, standing at the left bank steep, rocky cliff. Since 1955, when the Slapy Dam was completed, it stands close to the water of the Slapy dam lake.

During the summer season, Zivohost is a nice place to take a rest and swim in the Slapy dam. You can also use a small ferry or tourist boat to continue your trip. BE CAREFULL, THE CACHE IS AT A VERY FREQUENTED PLACE!

Cache is a tube-type with diameter 6 cm and lenght 15 cm.
