Geocache Description:


SLO
Vojaško pokopališce leži na položnem pobocju pod spodnjo postajo gondolske žicnice za Vogel, nad cesto, ki vodi proti slapu Savica. Bohinj je bil v letih 1915-1917 zaledje soške fronte. Iz bolnice na Komni so v dolino vozili številne ranjence. Padle vojake so pokopavali na razlicnih krajih. Nekaj jih pociva na manjšem pokopališcu. Na njem je v ravnih vrstah 282 grobov, obdanih z naravnimi kamni, z lesenimi križi na betonskih podstavkih.

Pokopališce zamejuje lesen plot. Na zakljucku poti, ki vodi od vhoda z železnimi kovanimi vrati in s portalom, na katerih sta letnici 1914-1918, je okoli 1,5 m visok spomenik iz naravnega kamna, posvecen padlim vojakom, junakom Krna in braniteljem Bohinja v letih 1915-1916, kar poudarjata nemški in slovenski napis.

Sredi pokopališca stoji lesena kapelica iz smrekovih okroglic, krita s skodlami. Na slemenu je manjši stolpic. Pred kapelico je nekaj stopnic iz naravnega kamna. V podstavek je vzidana spominska plošca padlim vojakom razlicnih narodnosti.

Zaklad je plasticna škatla naslednje vsebine:
- beležka, svincnik ( ne odstraniti )
- igracka, obesek za kljuce, žogica, kamen, milo za roke

Koordinate so tukaj slabe, lahko precej skacejo, toda namig vam lahko pomaga :)

ENG
This military cemetery lies on the gentle slope below the lower station of the Vogel cable car, above the road that leads towards the Savica Waterfall. Bohinj was the hinterland of the Isonzo front during the years 1915-1917. From the hospital in Komna many wounded were transported into the valley. The fallen soldiers were buried on different places. Some of them were laid to rest in this smaller cemetery. There are 282 graves in straight rows surrounded with natural stones, with wooden crosses on concrete pedestals.

In the middle of the cemetery stands a wooden chapel of spruce logs, covered by shingles. On the top there is a small tower. In front of the chapel there are some steps made of natural stone. In the pedestal, a memorial plaque to the dead soldiers of different nations is built in.

Cache is a plastic box, which includes:
- logbook, pencil (do not remove)
- toy, keyring, ball, hand soap, stone

GPS signal is bad around here, but hint can help you :)
