Geocache Description:

SK Jednoducha keska v geologicky aj historicky zaujimavom udoli pri obci Belusa.

EN Simple geocache in a geologically and historically interesting valley near the village Belusa.

SK Suradnice Vas privedu k prvej z troch "vrat" v Slatinskej doline, ktore vyhlbil potok vo vapencoch Maninskeho prikrovu. Prve vrata, zvane aj Belusske su pomenovane podla prilahlej obce Belusa. Impozantne brala na lavej strane sa nazyvaju aj Butkovske bradla. Najuzsie miesto tiesnavy bolo siroke len okolo dvoch metrov, ale tento prirodny prielom bol rozsireny v medzivojnovom obdobi za ucelom cestnej vystavby. Kedysi bol prechod mozny len korytom potoka, dnes tu najdeme asfaltovu cestu veducu na Mojtin. Takmer priamo v uzine pri ceste sa nachadza aj pomnik z druhej svetovej vojny, kde nemecki okupanti chytili siedmych obyvatelov obce Hloza vezucich proviant na salase a na mieste popravili za udajnu pomoc partizanom. Smadnym keserom a fajnsmekrom mineralnych vod odporucam kratku zastavku v Belusskych Slatinach, kde su dva mineralne pramene - jeden z nich zelezity, ten druhy obsahujuci sirovodik. Spolahnite sa na svoj cuch ked nebudete vediet ktory je ktory :-).

Samotna keska je lock'n'lock kontajner obsahujuci logbook, kartu pre nahodnych nalezcov a pisadlo. V keske zamerne nie su predmety na vymenu, aby v nej bolo dost miesta na TB a GC. Respektujte to prosim a nic do nej nevkladajte, pripadne ak tak nieco najdete to to kludne odtial vyberte. Vdaka.

EN The coords will bring you to the first of the three "gates" in the Slatinska Dolina Valley that was carved out by the river in the limestones of the Manin Nappe. The first gate, also known as the Belusa Gate are named after the village of Belusa which lies near-by (also highway exit). The narrowest part of the "gate" used to be only 2 meters wide, but it was eventually widened to the current ~10 meters in between WWI and WWII to accomodate the road to Mojtin. Virtually inside the "gate", right next to the road there is a WWII memorial to the seven villagers from Hloza who were transporting supplies to shepherds in the Ovsiska area. They were stopped by Nazi occupants, interrogated, convicted of aiding the partisans and executed on the spot. Thirsty geocachers and connoisseurs of natural mineral waters are advised to stop in the nearby village of Belusske Slatiny to taste two distinctly different natural springs. One of them contains hydrogen sulfide (still ok to drink). Your nose will tell you which one.

The geocache is a lock'n'lock container with a logbook and a writing implement. There is now swag to exchange in the cache, so that there is plenty of space for trackable items. Please respect owner's wishes and do not leave any trade items inside - keep the cache garbage free. Thank you.
