Geocache Description:


EN: Intro

A the beginning of the 20th an Austrian doctor Ernest Mayerhofer was searching the Adriatic. He was looking for an adequate place for thalassotherapy for children.

In 1912 his search brought him to island of Susak, where he found just the place he was looking for: isolated small island with a balmy maritime climate where children, referred by their physicians could covalence in the company of their parents without the usual seaside distractions. The island proved to be very therapeutical for children’s asthma, allergic conditions of pharynx, chronic bronchitis and similar ailments.

The location is also perfect for other pediatric indications, such as various respiratory diseases, skin rashes, chronic and torpid forms of rheumatism, hiperthrophia tonsillaris, convalescence after various infectious diseases.

Soon in the bay of Bok a number of small houses and a kitchen were constructed, based on the sketches of the Austrian architect Alfred Keller.

Along came a small hotel as well as a number of tents and reed cabins for aerotheraphy. Susak became a famous Austro-Hungarian sea-spa for allergic children.

All came to an end as the World War I broke out unexpectedly. Today all that remains are ruins just above the Bok bay.

About cache

Although dr Mayerhofer constructed many buildings in the bay of Bok, today not much is left. There is one visible object dating from that period. Coordinates will not lead you directly to cache but to a spot from which this object should be visible. Cache is hidden inside it!

Warning

The trail leading to the spot may be overgrown with rugged thorny bushes and high grass. Parts of it may have be unstable due to erosion. Make sure to ware firm shoes ... long trousers are also not a bad idea. Be careful!

HR: Intro

Početkom 20. stoljeća austrijski liječnik Ernest Mayerhofer je lutao Jadranom u potrazi za mjestom pogodnom za talasoterapiju za djecu.

Ta potraga ga je 1912. godine slučajno dovela na otok Susak, gdje je pronašao upravo onakvo mjesto kakvo je zamišljao: izolirani mali otok ljekovite morske klime, gdje bi se djeca u pratnji roditelja mogla u miru oporavljati.

Pretpostavka se pokazala ispravnom - Susak je zaista posjedovao iznimna terapijska svojstva za djecu s astmom, kroničnim bronhitisom, raznim alergijama i sličnim problemima dišnog sustava. Lokacija je također bila savršena za liječenje i drugih oboljenja kao što su kožni osip, kronični reumatizam, te razne infektivne bolesti.

U uvali Bok je ubrzo prema projektu austrijskog arhitekta Alfreda Kellera izgrađeno nekoliko kućica i kuhinja. Nešto kasnije izgrađen je i manji hotel, kao i više šatora i koliba za aeroterapiju.

Otok Susak je tako postao poznato Austro-Ugarsko lječilište za djecu.

Međutim, uspjeh i slava nisu dugo potrajali. Ubrzo je izbio 1. svjetski rat, tijekom kojeg su sve navedene građevine srušene. Uz nekoliko starih fotografija, jedini trag tog vremena koji danas možemo vidjeti su temelji hotela obrasli šipražjem iznad uvale Bok.

HR: O cache-u

Iako je dr. Mayerhofer u uvali Bok izgradio više kuća i zgrada, danas se iz daljine može vidjeti samo jednu jedinu ruševinu. Koordinate vas neće odvesti izravno na lokaciju samog cache-a, već na mjesto s kojeg ćete vidjeti ruševinu. Cache se nalazi negdje u ruševini!

HR: Upozorenje

Put do mjesta cache-a vodi preko polica obraslih trskom i trnjem. Zbog erozije put na mjestima može biti nestabilan. Obujte čvrste cipele, a možda i duge hlače ... pripazite prilikom uspona prema ruševini.
