Geocache Description:

Knoflikova kes / Button's cache

Ervinuv hrad od zapadu

(CZ) Jedna z okrajovych oblasti Prachovskych skal. Vyhlidka Ervinuv hrad je pojmenovana po tehdejsim majiteli panstvi Ervinu Schlikovi (1852 – 1906), ktery toto misto s oblibou navstevoval.
Za zacatek organizovane turistiky v Prachovskych skalach povazujeme rok 1879. Tehdy jicnsky profesor Antonin Vankomil Maloch pozval spoluzakladatele Klubu ceskych turistu Vojtu Naprstka a jeho pratele na vlastivednou vypravu do Prachovskych skal. Nasledne do Prachovskych skal zamirily cetne zastupy zvedavych navstevniku. To byl impuls k vytycovani a vyznaceni zdejsich turistickych tras. Nasledne vysly i prvni mapy a pruvodci po Prachovskych skalach. V roce 1883 byl vydan pruvodce Dr. Vladimira Lepare, v nemz navazal na praci A. V. Malocha, ktery od roku 1874 systematicky sestavoval nazvy pro jednotlive skalni utvary.
Turisticke aktivity progresivne podporoval i tehdejsi majitel Prachovskych skal Ervin Schlik. Povolil vstup do skal a roce 1886 nechal v centru skal pod Zelenou roli postavit v rekordnim case tri mesicu drevenou lesni restauraci v alpském stylu nazyvanou „Ve sklipku“. Sam ji take 7. cervence 1886 za ucasti velkeho poctu vyletniku slavnostne otevrel. Kuchyn mela vybornou povest. V potucku se pro stravniky chovali specialne vysazeni pstruzi a cepoval se Voksicky lezak. Tato restaurace slouzila ke spokojenosti turistu po mnoho let. V roce 1921 byla zborena a nedaleko nechal v roce 1924 K.C.T. vystavet chatu novou, ktera dodnes nese nazev Turisticka chata.
Jméno tehdejsiho oblibeneho majitele Prachovskych skal a nadseneho propagatora turistiky Ervna Schlika dodnes pripominaji i dalsi blizke skalni utvary Ervin a Ervinova vez pristupne vsak pouze organizovaným horolezcum.

(EN) Is one periphery area of the Prachov´s rocks. The wiev-point Ervin´s castle is named by the owner of lordship Mr. Ervin Schlik (1852 – 1906) who loved visiting this place.
We usually connect year 1879 with the beginning of tourist organization in the area of Prachov´s rocks. At that time Jicin´s professor Antonin Vankomil Maloch invited one of the founder of Czech tourist club Mr. Vojta Naprstek and his friends to homeland study trip round Prachov rocks. Subsequently many curious visitors came to Prachov´s rocks. This was an impulsion to built up and point marked routes. After that were published new maps and guide-books round the Prachov´s rocks. During year 1883 was published new guide-book written by Dr. Vladimir Lepar, who signed on the work of Mr. A.V. Maloch, he systematically named the individual rock formations.
Tourist activites were progressivelly supported by then-owner of Prachov rocks Mr. Ervin Schlick. He unloosed the entrance into the rock area. And in the year 1886 he let built in the record time small wooden restaurant in the alp style "Ve sklipku /in the wine tavern/" right in the centrer of rocks "pod Zelenou rokli /under the Green gullet"/ part.  The wine tavern was opend by the owner 7th July 1886, many tourist came to this show. The cuisine had an excelent reputation,  they grew trouts in the small brook near the tavern and taped Voksicky lager beer. This restaurant served for many years to many satisfied trip makers. In the year 1921 was the restaurant destroyed. Sequentally built the new one in the year 1924 and named as Turisticka chata /Tourist cottage/, we still use this name.
The name of Prachov´s popular owner and booster of tourism Mr. Ervin Schlik we can find on near rocks Ervin and Ervin´s tower, wich are available to organized climbers only.
