Geocache Description:


To je naš prvi zaklad. Kraj nam je všeč, ker je zelo lep in miren, od cerkve pa imate lep razgled nad zaključkom doline med Rašico in Koseškim hribom. Ta predel je zaradi velikega števila manj prometnih cest (ena od njih gre tudi mimo te cerkve) raj za kolesarje.

Šinkov Turn se v pisnih virih omenja že leta 1314 kot 'von den Turen'. Vas se imenuje po gradu, zgrajenem okrog leta 1250. Ime Turn pomeni grad, pridevnik Šinkov pa prihaja od lastnika, barona Šenka.

Marijina cerkev se prvič omenja leta 1526, današnja zgradba pa izhaja iz 18. stoletja.

Grad je bil med vojno požgan, kljub temu da je v njem delovala šola, od njega je ostal samo del obzidja in vrtni paviljon. V vrtnem paviljonu si lahko ogledate nekaj slik in si preberete nekaj o zgodovini gradu. Pri raziskovanju paviljona in grajskega obzidja ostanite na betonski potki.

 

EN:

Šinkov Turn was attested in written sources in 1314 as von den Turen (and as bei den Turen in 1337, pei des Schenken turen in 1353, von Turren in 1355, and Schenkenturn in 1419). The village is named after a castle that was built in 1240, the ruins of which are still visible today. The name Turn is used for several castles in Slovenia. The epithet Šinkov is derived from an early owner, a Baron Šenk.

The church (Virgin Mary Church) on the edge of the settlement is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. A church at the site was first mentioned in 1526 and the current structure dates from the 18th century.

A castle, after which the village gets it name, used to stand in the village. It was originally built in 1250 and survived as a building with a triangular floor plan and an arcaded courtyard until 1943, when it was burned down by the Partisans. After the end of the Second World War, it was demolished and the stones from it were used as building material elsewhere.
