Geocache Description:

Jednoduchá cache k pocte zakladatele zdejší textilní továrny, Ignaze Klingera.
Simple cache for the honour of the founder of local textile factory, Ignaz Klinger.

O míste

Mauzoleum nechali postavit roku 1901 potomci zakladatele textilního podniku, Ignaze Klingera. Ten zacínal v roce 1839 jako faktor, který organizoval domácí predení bavlnené príze pro ruzné podnikatele. V roce 1862 postavil vlastní tkalcovnu a od roku 1868 v ní pracovalo již 150 mechanických stavu.

Od 80 let minulého do zacátku tohoto století dosáhla firma nejvetšího rozkvetu. V dobe krize v tricátých letech 20. století byl rodinný podnik zmenen na akciovou spolecnost LANEX. Po válce byl spolu s mauzoleem zestátnen a stal se z ní závod Textilana Nové Mesto pod Smrkem.

Po triceti letech bylo mauzoleum darováno mestu. Dlouhá léta byla tato výjimecná stavba devastována a v letech 1987 se uvažovalo o její demolici.

V roce 1993 byla stavba Ministerstvem kultury CR za kulturní památku. Rozsáhlá rekonstrukce byla za financní úcasti Ministerstva kultury, Okresního úradu a mesta zahájena v roce 1995 a dokoncena v roce 2000.

Jde o významný monument, dusledne orientovaný k italským vzorum. Konkrétne v nem mužeme spatrovat paladiánskou reminiscenci, kterou se pyšní vila Capra ve Vincenze, postavená v osmdesátých letech 19. století, a kostel IL Redentore v Benátkách. Objekt tvorí jedno nadzemní a jedno podzemní podlaží ve kterém jsou uloženy ostatky Klingerovy rodiny. Cenné je zejména puvodní pískovcové obložení a vnejší kamenická výzdoba budovy.

Zájemci o prohlídku mauzolea najdou návod na tabuli před branou.

O cache

K mauzoleu se jde pres hrbitov, pred nímž mužete zaparkovat své plechové milácky a rovnou v nich zanechat i prípadné milácky psí. Hrbitov je otevren od kvetna do zárí od 8 do 20 hodin, zbytek mesícu pouze do 17 hodin, mimo ne nelze cache odlovit! (pokud vám tedy nevadí vloupání ;)) Samotná cache je cca 1l regular plastová krabicka, pokud nejdete na Dušicky nebo v dobe nejaké akce v Mauzoleu, je místo klidné a bez mudlu.

Poznámky

Cache prosím dukladne zamaskujte, již se jedna ztratila.
Nezapomínejte že jste na hrbitove.

About the mausoleum

The mausoleum was built at 1901 by descendants of the textile manufactury founder, Ignaz Klinger. He started at 1839 as the man who organised home spinning of cotton yarn for various enterprises. At 1862 he built his own weaver and from 1868 there were 150 weaver's looms working.

From the 1880's to the start of the 19th century the company was on its prime. During the 1930's crisis the family bussiness was changed to a joint-stock company named LANEX. After the world, the company was communized together with the mausoleum and renamed to Textilana Nové Mesto pod Smrkem.

At 1970's the mausoleum was transfered to the town of Nové Mesto pod Smrkem. For a long time this exceptional building was devastated an at 1987 there were plans to demolish it.

At 1993 the building was declared as the culture relic by the Czech ministry of culture. The large reconstruction started at 1995 and lasted to 2000, financed by the ministry of culture, district authorities and the town.

It's a significant monument, oriented to Italian classic buildings. We can see Paladian castback like the Capra villa at Vincenze from 1880's and the Il Redentore in Venezia. The object has one ground-based and one underground floor, where the Klinger family's remains are saved. Especially the original sandstone furring and outer stonemason decoration of the building are very valuable.

If you want to see the building from inside, you will find how to do it on a board in front of the cemetery.

About the cache

You have to cross the cemetery before entering the Mausoleum area. You can left your car together with your dog before the cemetery. The cemetery is opened from May to September from 8 to 17, from October to April it's open from 8 to 17 o'clock. In other time the cache can't be hunted! (if you're not a robber ;)) The cache itself is approx. 1 litre plastic box and if you're not going there on All Soul's day or when there's some event, it's very calm place and no muggles.

Notes
