Geocache Description:

maza karabina melna krasa


ENG

Starting the end of 17th century and start of 18th century, the largely unsurveyed territory was called Hausmaņa purvs. Until the 19th century, only  lived there. In 1828, the first part of the region was included in Riga's borders, and the area saw rise in single-family house construction. The second part of the region was included in Riga's borders in 1924, when a regional development plan and road construction led to rise in family home construction. The territory remained primarily for single homes until 1963. In 1965, the Purvciems housing block plan was conceived, that led to extensive high-rise building throughout 1970–80s. Purvciems together with Plavnieki is one of the most densely inhabited neighbourhoods of Riga.

LV

Tagadējā Purvciema teritorijā agrāk bijis Hausmaņa purvs. Nosaukums Purvciems radies 19 gadsimta beigās. teritorija pievienota Rigai un tajā uzsākta vienģimeņu māju būvniecība, kas turpinājās pēc Otrā Pasaules kara.

1864. gadā izstrādāts rajona izbūves detaļplānojums un sākta piecstāvu ķieģeļu dzīvojamo māju un sabiedrisko ēku būvniecība. Intensīva Purvciema apbūve turpinājās 1970. un 1980. gados — tad tika uzbūvēts pārtikas lielveikals Minska, Mēbeļu nams, bērnu un pieaugušo poliklīnikas, divas monolītbetona dzīvojamās ēkas — pirmās Rīgā. Purvciems ir pirmais Rigas mikrorajons, kurā parādījās 9 stāvu tipveida dzīvojamās mājas.

RUS

Название «Пурвциемс» появилось в конце девятнадцатого века и переводится с латышского как «болотное село»; название дано по Хаусманскому болоту (Hausmaņa purvs), которое находилось в границах современного микрорайона. В 1082 году имения Гризиньмуйжа (Grīziņmuiža) и Путнумуйжа (Putnumuiža), что нынче находились бы на месте Пурвциемса, были включены в состав Риги. Остальной Пурвциемс присоединили к городу в 30-х годах уже двадцатого столетия, когда был разработан первый план развития района и сформировалась сеть улиц, к настоящему времени ставших второстепенными
