Geocache Description:

LAT: Slepnis atrodas ainaviska Lielas Juglas krasta, kur slejas Ropažu viduslaiku pils drupas. Slepnis ir neliela karbina, kas satur logbuku, zimuli, un dažus niekus apmainai.

LAT: Ropažu viduslaiku pils vesture sakas 14. gadsimta un ta varetu but celta ap 1322. gadu, bet Livonijas pilu saraksta Ropažu pils paradas gadsimtu velak. Pilij bijuši dažadi ipašnieki, bet ka pedejais minets brivkungs Heinrihs fon Dons, kurš pili sanemis davinajuma no Livonijas ordena mestra Gotharda Ketlera. Pils cieta Livonijas kara laika 1558.-1559. gada, kad krievu karaspeks to nodedzinaja, bet nav precizi zinams, kad pils tikusi pamesta.

Pils senais nosaukums ir Rodenpois, tadel ari slepnim šads nosaukums.

Musdienas no senas mura ekas pari palicis tikai pilskalns, daži sienu fragmenti. Pati pils vieta ir skaisti sakopta, taja ir informacijas zimes, pastaigu takas un solini. Lieliska vieta, kur atvilkt elpu vai sarikot mazu pikniku. Pedejos gadus vasaras vidu šaja vieta notiek Ropažu viduslaiku dienas ar dažadam jautram izdaribam.

Pilsdrupas ir ierakstitas valsts aizsargajamo kulturas piemineklu saraksta, tadel esiet saudzigi, pa muriem, ludzu, neložnajiet un ari slepni tajos nemeklejiet.

ENG: In Middle Ages Ropazi was situated in the territory of the German Order. With the time being the relationship between the Order and Riga City and Archbishop strained. Therefore the Order started building of a castle in the territory of the Rodenpoys Livs in the 14 century. It served as the administration center of the castle territory, as a check point to guarantee safe traffic, as a subordinate castle for the Riga Order Castle in case there were a war with Riga City.

Castle was destroyed in the end of 16th century during Livonian war and nowadays you can see only some remains of ancient stone building, but the territory around it is landscaped and this is a wonderful place to take a breath and enjoy little picnic.
