Geocache Description:



Mohorjev klanec

Na Mohorjevem klancu, kot je domače ime za Vodopivčevo ulico, so nekoc pod
Roženvensko cerkvijo stala dvojna mestna vrata v srednjeveškem obrambnem obzidju.
Pozneje je obzidje izgubilo obrambno funkcijo in bilo uničeno. V tem delu Kranja, ki so mu
včasih rekli Savsko predmestje, je delovala od srede 18. stoletja do zacetka 20. stoletja
Pirčeva barvarna, ki si jo danes lahko ogledamo v družinskem muzeju na številki 11. Na vrhu
Mohorjevega klanca stoji podružnična cerkev iz prvega desetletja 16. stoletja, posvečena
Materi božji roženvenski. V času protestantizma je služila kot protestantsko svetišče.

Arhitekt Jože Plečnik je z arkadami, vodnjakom in preurejeno fasado hiše pod vrhom klanca
v letih 1953 -1959 skušal oblikovati monumentalen vhod v mesto. Strm klanec je spremenil v
stopnišče, nekdanji vodnjak (šterno) pa je nadomestil z obeliskom, vrh katerega se iz
bronastega petelina pretaka voda v kamnite, terasasto postavljene posode. Motiv je nova
interpretacija stopnišča Rajskega vrta na Hradčanih v Pragi.

Prosim, prinesi svoje pisalo in vrni škatlico tako kot je označeno!

The architect Jože Plecnik planned in years 1953 to 1959 to make a monumental entrance
into the town. He transformed the steep slope into a staircase and replaced the former well
(called “šterna”) with an obelisk, at the top of which there is a bronze rooster from which the
water runs into stone, terraced vessels. The fountain is an interpretation of the Garden of
Eden at Hradcany, Prague.

Please, bring your own pen and return the box as it's marked!
