Geocache Description:



Schody Odeskie w Warszawie / Odessa Stairs in Warsaw

Schody Odeskie w Warszawie. GPS zaprowadzi Was do Parku Marszalka Edwarda Smiglego-Rydza, który dawniej nazywal sie Centralnym Parkiem Kultury i Wypoczynku. Powstal on w latach 40. i 50. XX wieku na zgliszczach Powisla (czesc wschodnia) i pozostalosciach Ogrodów Frascati (czesc zachodnia w rejonie skarpy). Co ciekawe, byly nawet plany by cale Powisle od Lazienek po Mariensztat zmienic w jeden wielki park, jednak lata 60. przyniosly zmiane koncepcji.

Przez park przebiega centralna os, która zaczyna sie tarasem na szczycie skarpy z pieknym widokiem calej osi, ze skarpy schodzi monumentalnymi schodami, dalej ciagnie sie aleja która dociera na koncu do pomnika Chwala Saperom, oraz Plyty Desantu nad Wisla.

Schody na skarpie sa wzorowane na Schodach Potiomkinowskich w Odessie. Schody Odeskie na Powislu sa oczywiscie mniejsze od pierwowzoru, ale i tak robia wrazenie i sa popularnym miejscem sesji zdjeciowych. To wlasnie u ich stóp ukrylem skrzynke .

Odessa Stairs in Warsaw. GPS will lead you to the Marshal Edwars Rydz-Smigly Park, which was previously called the Central Park of Culture and Leisure. The Park was formed in 1940s and 1950s at the ruins of Powisle District (eastern part), and remains of Frascati Gardens (western part, near the Vistula river slope). There were plans to all Powisle District change onto big park, but in the 1960s plans have changed.

There's central axis in the park, it starts with the terrace at the top of the slope, with beatiful view down to the rest of axis, then it goes down with monumental staircase, and with long alley it reaches the monument Glory to Sappers, and Landing Operation Plate by the Vistula river.

Staircase at the slope is modeled on the Potemkin Stairs in Odessa. Altough they are much smaller than stairs in Odessa, they are still quite impressive, and it's very popular place of photo sessions. Geocache is hidden near the bottom of the stairs
