Geocache Description:


SLO

Kozlov rob ali Grad kot mu pravijo domačini, je 426 m visoka vzpetina, ki se nahaja nad Tolminom. Z vrha, na katerem se nahajajo obnovljene ruševine nekdanjega gradu, se nam odpre lep razgled proti Tolminu in okoliškim gora.

Grad so začeli graditi v 11 stoletju. Najprej so zgradili vzhodni in severni stolp. Zato sta najstarejša. Kasneje so zgradili tudi dva šestkotna stolpa. Imeli so tudi dva vodnjaka, ki sta bila zgrajena na način prečiščevanja vode. Na gradu so imeli volčjo jamo ali zapor. Vanjo so zapirali ujetnike. V severnem stolpu je bila kupola in hladilnica. V hladilnico so dajali ubite živali, da so imeli hrano za zimo. Zahodni stolp je najbolj obnovljen, južni pa je najbolj porušen. V grajski stavbi so imeli kapelo svetega Petra. V času plemičev je na gradu domovala samo grajska straža. Lastniki gradu niso živeli na njem. Hrib Kozlov rob je bil takrat poraščen samo s travo, da se je grajska straža lažje bojevala . Danes je Kozlov rob poraščen s drevesi in je namenjen turistom. 
Zadnje čase so ga kar precej obnovili, okoli njega pa tudi posekali nekaj dreves, tako da je sedaj viden že iz Tolmina. 

Zgodovinska naravoslovna učna pot teče po južnem pobočju Kozlovega roba. Na 14. točkah predstavi rastlinstvo, strukturo gozdnih tal in kamnin, pa tudi zgodovinska dogajanja.

Do vrha je dobre 45 minut  pol ure hoje.

ENG

Kozlov rob is a rounded peak above Tolmin, which the local people also call 'Castle' ('Grad'). 

The castle was held in fief by a long series of masters: the Patriarchate of Aquileia, the Counts of Gorizia, the city of Cividale de Friuli, the Venetia Republic, and finally the Habsburgs. It appears to have functioned as a dedicated fortress rather than a residence, and had no permanent civilian population in peacetime, only a large garrison; it also housed a prison. The structure was severely damaged in the earthquakes of 1348 and 1511, but was repaired each time. It was finally abandoned in 1651 by its last owners, the Coronnini family, for a new manor in Tolmin itself, though it remained sufficiently intact by 1713 to play a role in the great peasant revolt of that year. The castle is currently in ruins, though parts of it have been restored.

After 1651, when the Coronini's took over the Tolmin nobility and governorship the castle was finally abandoned and a new castle was built in the town of Tolmin (a part of which now houses the museum).

In recent years, the ruins of the castle have been gradually restored. So far, part of the castle wall and the Sv. Martin chapel have been reconstructed. 
 
An historical and natural science education trail leads across the southern slopes of Kozlov rob. At fourteen points along the trail, plaques describe the vegetation, the composition of the forest soil and stone, and various historical events.
