Beschreibung (Deutsch)

Bjelašnica

Die Bjelašnica ist ein Gebirgszug in Bosnien und Herzegowina südwestlich von Sarajevo gelegen. Der höchste Gipfel, gleichfalls Bjelašnica genannt, ist 2067m hoch. Vom diesem Gipfel aus kann man die wunderbare Aussicht auf die umliegenden Berge genießen. Die Bjelašnica ist ein beliebtes Erholungsgebiet zum Wandern und Skifahren. Während der XIV. olympischen Winterspiele 1984 in Sarajevo wurde die Bjelašnica u.a. für den Wettbewerb Ski Alpin der Männer genutzt. Im gesamten Gebiet wurden zu dieser Zeit Hotels errichtet, welche im Krieg 1992 – 1995 zerstört wurden und nun langsam wieder aufgebaut werden.

Das Observatorium am Gipfel

Auf dem Gipfel befindet sich die älteste meteorologische Station des Balkans. Seit 1894 wird von hier das Wetter beobachtet und aufgezeichnet. Stürme in Windstärke 10, also von über 100km/h sind hier keine Seltenheit, da sich hier die mediterranen mit den kontinentalen Windströmungen treffen.

Anton Obermüller

Der erste hier tätige Meteorologe trug den für Bosnien und Herzegowina untypischen Namen Anton Obermüller. Dies ist kein Zufall, fällt doch die Einrichtung der Wetterwarte und der Beginn der meteorologischen Aufzeichnungen auf dem Berg Bjelašnica in die Zeit der österreichisch-ungarischen Herrschaft. Anton Obermüller arbeitete in dieser Station vier (4) Jahre lang. 1897 verstarb er und wurde etwas unterhalb des Gipfels nahe beim Fahrweg begraben.

Warnung

Die Benutzung eines Allradfahrzeuges wird strengstens empfohlen. Die Suche nach dem Cache erfolgt auf eigenes Risiko. Bleibt aus Sicherheitsgründen (Minen) auf dem befestigten Fahrweg und lauft nicht querfeldein. Der Cache ist vom Fahrweg aus leicht zu heben.

 

Listing/Description (English)

Bjelašnica

Bjelašnica is a mountain in central Bosnia and Herzegovina, located southwest to the Sarajevo. The summit of the mountain, also called Bjelašnica, is 2067 m above sea level. From this summit, one can enjoy a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains. Bjelašnica is a very popular recreation area for hiking and skiing. During the XIV Olympic Winter Games held in Sarajevo in 1984, Bjelašnica was a mountain venue for alpine skiing competition for men. Before the XIV Olympic Games, the infrastructure to support this important sports event was built up, including a number of hotels. Most of the infrastructure was demolished during a 1992-1995 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which has been slowly renewed after the war.

The Observatory on the Summit

There is the oldest meteorological station in the Balkans on the Bjelašnica summit. The weather has been observed and recorded from this station since 1894. This is the point at which the Mediterranean and continental wind streams collide, which often results in strong winds, which can reach speeds of over 62mph.

Anton Obermüller

The first meteorologist who worked at the Meteorological station on Bjelašnica was an Austrian Anton Obermüller. The station was established during the Austrian-Hungarian rule in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and he was the first employee there.  He stayed at the station for nearly four years before his death. He was buried close to the summit and his grave is still there, near a road running to the station.

Warning:

The use of an all-terrain vehicle is strongly recommended. Searching for the geocache and driving to the location with vehicles of any kind is done at one's own risk. For reasons of safety regarding the mine situation, do not walk across country, stay on the road!

Bjelašnica

Bjelašnica je planina u centralnoj Bosni i Hercegovini, smještena jugozapadno od  Sarajeva. Najviši vrh, koji se takođe zove Bjelašnica, visok je 2067 m i sa njega se pruža veličanstven pogled na okolne planine. Bjelašnica je veoma popularno mjesto za rekreaciju, pješačenje i skijanje. Za vrijeme XIV zimskih olimpijskih igara koje su se održale u Sarajevu 1984. godine, Bjelašnica je bila jedna od olimpijskih planina, na kojoj se održalo takmičenje u alpskom smučanju za muškarce. Prije olimpijskih igara izgrađena je infrastruktura potrebna za ovaj važni sportski događaj. Tokom rata u Bosni i Hercegovini od 1992. do1995. godine, veći dio te infrastrukture je uništen, ali se u poslijeratnom periodu polako obnavlja.

Opservatorij na vrhu

Na vrhu Bjelašnice nalazi se najstarija meteorološka stanica na Balkanu. Iz ove stanice, vremenske prilike se prate i bilježe još od 1894. godine. Na tom mjestu se sudaraju mediteranska i kontinetalna struja, što često uzrokuje pojavu jakih vjetrova, čija brzina može biti preko 100 km/h (62mph).

Anton Obermüller

Prvi meteorolog koji je radio u Meteorološkoj stanici na Bjelašnici bio je Austrijanac Anton Obermüller. Stanica je osnovana za vrijeme austro-ugarske vladavine u Bosni i Hercegovini i on je bio prvi uposlenik stanice. Tu je radio skoro četiri godine, sve do svoje smrti, a tu je i sahranjen i njegov grob se nalazi blizu puta koji vodi do stanice.

Upozorenje

Strogo se preporučuje korištenje terenskog vozila. Potraga za geotačkom i vožnja do lokacije vozilom bilo kog tipa je na vlastitu odgovornost. Zbog vaše sigurnosti i  moguće opasnosti od mina, ne vozite i ne pješačite van obilježenih puteva i staza.
