Geocache Description:




Tretí ze serie o pražskách legendách / The third cache from the serie dedicated to Prague legends


O zkamenelém ulicníkovi

Kostel svatého Martina  patrí mezi nejstarší kostely v Praze. Byl založen již ve 12. století a puvodne skutecne stával prímo v hradbách Starého Mesta. Podle toho bývá také nazýván kostelem svatého Martina ve zdi.
Pred dávnými casy na strechu kostela lezli malí ulicníci a vybírali holubí hnízda. Jednou takhle sedel kousek pod strechou na pilíri jeden malý drzoun a pokrikoval obzvlášt hlasite na své kamarády a lidi kolem. To se nelíbilo jednomu kolemjdoucímu, který kluka napomenul. K nicemu to nevedlo, protože kluk si byl jistý tím, že muž v cerném plášti za ním na strechu nepoleze a proto svuj krik nezmenšil, ba naopak.
Neznámý se zastavil, pohlédl na kluka, zvedl ruce a neco tiše pronesl. V ten okamžik kluk zkamenel… Krcí se na pilíri na zádi kostela a se šklebem na tvári jako by dál pokrikoval na kolemjdoucí. Zvedli jste nekdy hlavu, když jste 
šli okolo a zamysleli jste se, zda neznáte zaklínadlo, které by jej vrátilo mezi živé?

Okolí kostela je v hanebném stavu. Udelat si z takového místa verejný pisoár je proste nepochopitelné. Puvodne jsem chtel umístit keš prímo na budovu – místa by se našla, ale byla by to chuze v minovém poli. Nakonec jsem keš umístil pár kroku od kostela na cisté místo, tak se nemusíte bát. Od keše je výhled na jinou sochu na pilíri. Abyste shlédli našeho ulicníka, musíte popojít asi dvacet kroku na druhou stranu lode a pohlédnout vzhuru.

Keš prosím vyjímejte a vracejte zlehka, GPS nebude naprosto k nicemu, muj Garmin 60Cx ukazoval +/- 50 metru. Použijte hint. A vezmete si tužku. a pokuste se co nejvíce šetrit místem v logbooku.Díky

 

The petrified Urchin

The Church of St. Martin is one of the oldest churches in Prague. It was founded in the twelve century and originally was part of the fortification of Old Town. That is how it got its name. A long time ago the street urchins used to climb to roof of the church to steal little pigeons from the nests. One day one of those boys was sitting on the stone buttress under the roof and was shouting that loud, that one of pedestrians asked him to behave. The rascal just made a face being sure that black dressed gentleman will not climb up to catch him and shouted even more laud. The stranger stopped, turned his face up to that boy, raised his arms and whispered something silently. The boy was turned into stone…
Have you ever raised your head when passing by and tried to figure out what spell could set that boy free?

 The street around the church is a mess. I don’t understand how people can make public urinal in area like this. Originally I planned to attach the cache directly on the building, but the search for it would like walking thru mine field. I placed the cache few steps away from the church, but on the dry and clean place. From the cache there is a view on another statue sitting on the pillar, but if you want to see our rascal, you have to take few steps to opposite side of the church and look up.

Please, remove and return the cache gently. GPS is useless in that area, my Garmin 60Cx showed accuracy +/- 50 meters. Use hint. instead. However I think the spot is quite obvious. Please, hide container properly!
