Geocache Description:

LAT: Slēpnis atrodas Kurzemes augstākajā punktā Krievu jeb Krīvu kalnā. Lūdzu, atlieciet slēpni atpakaļ maigi. Paldies! Lai veicas!

ENG: The cache is located on the highest point of Kurzeme - Krievu or Krīvu hill. Please put the cache back carefully. Thanks! Good luck!


LAT Atrodoties Krievu/Krīvu kalnā un paveroties apkārt, grūti noticēt, ka tas ir Kurzemes augstākais punkts (190 m v.j.l.) Te apkārt nav stāvu nogāžu, vien nelieli pauguri, lauki un meži.

Senatnē kalnā bijusi sakrāla vieta, par ko liecina te redzamais lielais svētakmens. Padomju gados milzeni pārvietojuši melioratori, taču tas joprojām slēpj atmiņas par rituāliem, ko senie priesteri krīvi veikuši tā tuvumā.

Saulei atspīdot pret akmeni konkrētā leņķī, vairākas reizes gadā uz tā virsmas redzamas senas rakstu zīmes - jumis, ugunskrusts, u.c. Paskaties rūpīgi, varbūt arī Tev izdosies saskatīt šos pagātnes noslēpumus?

P.S. Sākotnējais konteineris - zaķēns ligzdā diemžēl zudis, tādēļ talkā nācis kāds ārzemju viesis. :)

 

ENG Standing on Krievu/Krivu hill and looking around it is hard to believe that it is the highest point of Kurzeme (190 m) There are no steep slopes, just small mounds, fields and forests.

A huge cult stone on the top of the hill proves silently that there has been a sacred place many years ago. The stone has been moved during Soviet times, but it still keeps memories about the ancient priests - krīvs - and their rituals alive.

There is an exact position of the sun several times a year what reveals ancient signs engraved on top of the stone. Look carefully maybe you will be able to see these mysterious secrets of the past?
