Geocache Description:

Per gli increduli...


HR

Lujzijana je bila prva moderna planinska prometnica u Hrvatskoj, sagrađena u skladu s najnaprednijim znanjem i tehnikama gradnje svog vremena. Udovoljavala je svim zahtjevima prometa zaprežnim kolima te je označila novo razdoblje u građenju planinskih cesta na području hrvatskog krša, pa su kasnije ceste građene po uzoru na nju. 

Ispod Kamenjaka, Lujzijana se nastavlja spuštati do velike serpentine zvane Cirkul Na njoj je kameni obelisk s oznakom 15km od Rieke koji je zamijenio izvorni miljokaz sa natpisom na 16 poštanskih milja (oko 120km od Karlovca). Sudeći po natpisu, postavljen je nakon 1871.godine kada je Austro-Ugarska Monarhija usvojila metrički sustav. S Cirkula se pruža širok pogled na prostrano Grobničko polje.

Lujzijana was the first modern mountain road in Croatia, built in accordance with the most advanced knowledge and techniques of construction of its time. Complied with all the requirements of transport carts, it has marked a new era in the building of mountain roads in the Croatian karst, and all the later roads were modeled on it.

Below Kamenjak hill, Lujzijana continues to descend to the great serpentine called Cirkul. On it there's a stone obelisk marked 15km from Rieka which replaced the original milestone with written 16 postal miles (about 120 km from Karlovac). According to the inscription, it was placed after 1871 when the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy has adopted the metric system. Cirkul offers a great view towards the spacious Grobnik field.
