Geocache Description:


cesky:
Cache je ukryta na temeni zalesneneho vrchu pobliz zbytku zriceniny hradu Dzbán, ktery ve stredoveku strezil cestu prochazejici rozsedlinou prilehave nazyvanou Vrata. Jiz v dobach predhistorickych zde byvalo hradiste, snad keltske. O vlastnich dejinach hradu neni zadnych blizsich pisemnych zminek, jisto je, ze zanikl velmi casne, nebot jiz pocatkem 16. stoleti bylo misto rozkopavano za ucelem dobyvky stavebniho kamene. Z hradu pozustalo jen par skrovnych trosek zdi, opustene opukove lumky vsak daly vzniknout pitoresknim skalnim utvarum...
Hledejte zlutou plastovou nadobu valcoviteho tvaru (objem 1 l). Dalsi podrobnejsi informace, tykajici se samotne cache naleznete nize, v zaveru listingu.

English:
The cache is located at top of a wooded hill close to the remains of ruined castle of Dzbán (Czech for jug), which used to guard a pass called pertinently Vrata (=gate). Scant remains of even larger prehistorical fortificiation predecessing it, probably from Celtic times (1st millenium BCE), were discovered. The medieval castle existed probably only for a short period since 13th century but there are no direct mentions of Dzbán in written records from that period. At least since early 16th century the site was used as a stone quarry and gradually turned into huge Swiss cheese. Only lamentable fragments of walls remained (and also some scenic exposed rocks...). Look for a yellow cylindrical plastic container (volume 1 l).

Preju vsem hodne stesti pri hledani, hezke pocasi a prijemne zazitky z vypravy. Vybude-li vam alespon trochu casu a chuti, nevahejte se pak v logu na par vet rozepsat - rad si poctu treba odkud a jakym zpusobem jste se na misto dostali a co vsechno pri tom videli - od veverky az po turistickou znamku... Budu vdecny i za kazdou prubeznou zminku o kondici schranky, mire zaplnenosti logbooku ci stavu trackables.
