Geocache Description:


[LV]

Slēpnis ir veltīts Ilūkstes pilsētai, kas atrodas Sēlijas austrumos.

Ilūkste sāka veidoties 1559.gadā. Pateicoties izdevīgai atrašanās vietai Sēlijas, Latgales, Lietuvas un Baltkrievijas krustojumā, tā kļuva par lielu tirdzniecības centru, kas nepārtraukti attīstījās līdz 20.gadsimta sākumam. Ilūkstē pat bija izveidots krievu skolotāju institūts.

1915.gadā pilsēta ilgāku laiku atradās uz pašas kaujas līnijas, te nebija palikusi neviena vesela māja. Diemžēl savu iepriekšējo greznību pēc kara pilsēta tā arī neatguva.

No slēpņa vietas paveras skaists skats uz Ilūkstes pilsētu.

[EN]

Geocache is dedicated to a small town of Ilūkste in south Sēlija region (east-south of Latvija).

Town history starts from 1559. Due to convenient location on Sēlija, Latgale, Lithuania and Belarus crossroads Ilūkste began fast development as a trading point. At the highest point even university was established in Ilūkste.

But during First World War Ilūkste was on war line, all buildings and houses were demolished. After war Ilūkste never got back up to its splendid past.

From the cache location there is a beautiful view at the town of Ilūkste.
