Geocache Description:

Vyletni cache u cesko-rakouskych hranic na Mikulovsku v miste byvale zelezne opony.
Short info in English is at the end of the site.

Tato cache Vas zavede do blizkosti cesko-rakouske statni hranice, k mistum, kde reku Dyji pretinala zelezna opona. Pres Dyji zde zustaly na betonovych pilirich zanechany zelezne traverzy, na kterych byla signalni stena umistena. I po demontovani zelezne opony se da po tomto "moste" stale prejit z jednoho brehu na druhy.
V blizkosti se rovnez nachazi ropik z prihranicniho opevneni.

Zhruba 900 m severneji se na Jantarove cyklostezce nachazi novy most slouzici zejmena cyklistum. Do roku 2006 slouzil k prekonani Dyje most dreveny, postaveny pohranicni strazi.

Zeleznou oponou se nazyva zenijni zabezpeceni statni hranice byvaleho Ceskoslovenska (a vlastne i ostatnich socialistickych statu) s okolni kapitalistickou cizinou. Jednalo se o system dratenych plotu a dalsich technickych prostredku slouzicich k zadrzeni osob, ktere chtely nelegalne Ceskoslovensko opustit ci se do nej dostat. V prvni verzi zelezne opony (budovane od roku 1951) byl plot-drateny zataras pod vysokym napetim. V roce 1965 se od toho drastickeho zpusobu ochrany statni hranice upustilo, zacala se pouzivat signalni stena, ktera na rotu Pohranicni straze signalizovala pokus o jeji prekonani. S odstranovanim zelezne opony se na uzemi dnesni CR zacalo v prosinci 1989.

INFORMATION IN ENGLISH - CACHE AT A NEW PLACE - INFO WILL BE UPDATED ASAP: This cache takes you to South Moravia Region to the czech-austrian border. A wooden brigde over the river of Dyje stood in this location until the year 2006. The bridge was used by former Czechoslovak border guard. The wooden bridge was destroyed during flood in 2006. Now there is a new concrete bridge. So called iron curtain was situated there till 1990 and the bridge was part of it (don´t know what the iron curtain was, please visit this link). If you will choose to travel to this place from Austria by bike or by car (not heavier than 3.5 tons), you can use border crossing Novy Prerov - Alt Prerau which is in the closeness.
