Geocache Description:


Lai cik savādi tas mūsdienās nešķistu, kādreiz iespēja mājās nomazgāties nemaz nebija tik ierasta, it īpaši lauku mājās. Bet mazgāties vajadzēja. Tāpēc tuvākajā apkaimē vienmēr bija publiskās pirtis, kuras tika kurinātas vienreiz nedēļā un visi ciema ļaudis devās mazgāties.

Lašos ir bijušas divas pirtis. Viena pēckara laika pirts, kas kalpojusi līdz septiņdesmito gadu vidum, kad Jēkabpils MRS (mežrūpniecības saimniecība) uzcēla jaunu modernu pirti. Pirts tika uzcelta skaistā vietā pie vienas no Daugavas nelielajām attekām. Vietējie bērni šo vietu bija iesaukuši par "Ņurku", droši vien cēlies no krievu vārda нырять. Palu ūdeņi un ledi šeit izgrauzuši dziļu gultni, kurā vasarās varēja izklaidēties lekājot no laipiņas ūdenī. Pirts atrašanās Daugavas krastā reizēm traucēja tās darbību, jo palu ūdeņi šo pirti apņēma uz pāris nedēļām un nācās iztik bez mazgāšanās. Pirtniece bija krievu izcelsmes kundze uzvārdā Koļesņikova. Pirts tika kurināta piektdienu vakaros: no 17:00-19:00 apmeklēja vīrieši, bet no 19:00 bija sieviešu un bērnu laiks. Pirts aktīvi darbojās līdz 90. gadu sākumam, kad mainoties laikiem mainījās  arī cilvēku ieradumi. Diemžēl pirts ir zaudējusi savu iepriekšējo laiku spozmi un ir atstāta laika zoba varā.

English:

It seems rather peculiar nowadays; however the option to wash oneself at home was not something ordinary. That was especially the case in countryside. Of course there was always the need for keeping the body clean. That’s why public bathhouses were always in the vicinity. They were heated once a week and all the people from village went to bathe.

Two bath houses existed in Laši. One of those was built after the war, and it was used until mid 70s, when Jēkabpils MRS (wood industry community) built a new one. The bath house was built in a beautiful place near one of river Daugava old branches. Local children used to call this place „Ņurka”. The name is most likely comes from russian word нырять (niryat - to dive). Ice and spring floods have made a deep river bed that could be used for jumping and diving during summers. Since the bath house was located so close to the river, spring floods stopped the possibility of visiting it for a couple of weeks. Bath house attendant was a lady of Russian origin, with last name Kolesnikova. The bath house was heated on Friday evenings. Men attended it from 5pm to 7pm. Women and children attended it after 7pm. The bath house was functioning actively up until first half of 90s. As times changed, people’s habits changed as well. Unfortunately the bath house has lost its former radiance, and is left in the ravages of time.
