Kostel v Oparanech


Historie Kostela Sv. Frantiska Xaverskeho zacina v roce 1657, kdy na miste zpustle tvrze zalozila hrabenka Frantiska Slavatova puvodni maly kostelik. Posvecen byl o dva roky pozdeji. Plany podal Matej Vels a stavbu provedli Ondrej Radler a mistr Michael Seemayer, stavitel. Kaple svatohorské Panny Marie, sv. Ignace a vez byly pristaveny az v roce 1669. Roku 1732 dal Petr Jan Schmidt, superior v Oparanech, sesly kostelik zborit a vystavel nynejsi kostel. Do roku 1735 postavili jezuite nynejsi nadherny chram, ktery je zcela podobny chramu svateho Klimenta v Praze. Vnitrek chramu je bohaty a krasny jako vsechny jezuitske stavby. Vez byla dostavena v roce 1748. Od kostela byva pekny vyhled na okolni, mirne zvlnenou krajinu smerem k Bechyni (cca 12 km odsud). Za pekneho pocasi jsou videt kourici veze Temelina :-). Pobliz kostela se nachazi znama detska psychiatricka lecebna. V lete doporucujeme osvezeni v bistru "Na Tahu", ktere nabizi posezeni na zahradce a pet druhu piv (stav prosinec 2010). Hospodu najdete pojedete-li odsud smerem na Tabor, po cca 1 km vpravo na hlavni ulici.

Pro vsechny kritiky, kterym vadi jednoduchost ukryti - je to nase prvni keska. Slo nam predevsim o napravu faktu, ze v Oparanech dosud zadna nebyla. Chteli jsme ji umistit na zajimave misto a zaroven jsme nechteli pouzit mikro nebo small kesku, protoze jsme chteli pozorovat, jak se v ni budou menit predmety. Umistit kesku teto velikosti na takovem miste jsme shledali jako velmi omezene, proto jsme ukryt zvolili takovy, jaky je. Pokud nekoho napadne lepsi misto, at mi napise, rad se poucim ;-) Co se tyce obalu kesky - krabicku chrani pevny obal od PRACIHO PRASKU. Vim, ze to spouste lidi vadi, ale pokud by radeji potrhane cerne igelitky, ktere vypadaji jako by vypadly odnekud z popelnice, prosim, budu je zase pouzivat :-)

Pred casem se ztratil z kesky logbook, tak je tam zatim provizorni stocek papirku, nez tam dam novy, poradny logbook. Dekuji za pochopeni a omlouvam se, ze keska neni kompletni, jak by mela byt.

History of the Church of St. Francis Xavier begins in 1657 when on the place of the desolated citadel Countess Franz Slavatova built original small church. It was consecrated two years later. Plans filed Matthew Vels and construction made Ondrej Radler and Michael Seemayer, builder. Chapel of Our Lady of Svatá Hora, Saint Ignatius and tower were added in 1669. In 1732 Peter Jan Schmidt, Superior in Oparany, demolished run-down church and built the present church. By 1735 the Jesuits built the present magnificent church, which is quite similar to the Church of St. Clement in Prague. Inside the temple is a rich and beautiful like all Jesuit constructions. The tower was completed in 1748. From the church is a nice view of the surrounding countryside towards to Bechyne (distance 12 km). If visibility is good, you can see the smoking towers of Temelin power plant :-). Near the church is the well known children psychiatric hospital. In summer, we recommend to stop in the bistro "Na Tahu," which offers sitting in the garden, and five kinds of beer (December 2010). Pub can be found if you take away the direction of Tabor, after about 1 km on the right on Main Street. (Translated with help of Goodle Translator)

For all critics: it's our first cache. We wanted to repair the fact no cache was in Oparany yet. We wanted to place it on the interesting place. We didn't want to use micro or small size, because we wanted to see how content's changing. It was quite big problem to place this cache size on that place for us, so we decided how we decided. If somebody find better place, please e-mail to me. I would like to learn myself ... :-)

Some time ago a logbook disappeared, so I put there a temporary notepad until I place there a new, classic logbook. Please accept my apologies that cache is not completed as would to be.
