cesky:

Prochazku lze doporucit obzvlaste, kdyz se vzduch vycisti a je dobra viditelnost. Celkova vzdalenost je necele 3 km (pocitano od jedne zastavky MHD ke druhe). Jen mala cast vyletu jde terenem mimo cesty, i na kole ci s kocarkem se bez vetsich obtizi od zacatku az k cili dostanete. Nebudete-li mit opravdu smulu, nemeli by vam u cile mudlove delat prilisnou starost.
Souradnice, uvedene v zahlavi zadani, vas dovedou do tesne blizkosti dablicke hvezdarny, ke skalnimu vychozu s krizem na vychodnim okraji. Za prihodneho pocasi se z tohoto mista otevira pohled na velkou cast severnich Cech az k hranicnim horam. Na severozapade je 30 km vzdaleny Rip a za nim pres 50 km daleko pasmo Ceskeho stredohori, na severovychodni strane je mozno videt 48 km vzdaleny Bezdez a, mate-li stesti, Jested (75 km). V idealnim pripade muze vyhled obsahnout temer cely severni perimetr Cech od Klinovce az po Snezku (115 km).
Kdyz jste se pokochali pohledem do dalky (at uz pozemske ci nebeske), je nacase pokracovat v ceste.

Kolem paty krize jsou vepsana ctyri latinska slova. Pouzijte nejkratsi a druhe nejkratsi z nich a prevedte je na cisla s pomoci bezne telefonni klavesnice (tj. A, B, C = 2 atd.). Pak uz podle nasledujiciho vzorecku ziskate konecnou pozici cache.
(druhe nejkratsi slovo - 1772) / 10 = nnnn
(nejkratsi slovo + 1) x 3 = eeee
Cache se nachazi na N 50 0n.nnn E 014 2e.eee.
Hodne stesti!

English:

Recommended especially by clear air and good visibility. The total distance is slightly below 3 km (from one stop of the Public Transport to another one). Only small part of the trip is off-trail; cycling is quite well possible.
The coordinates given above point to a rocky outcrop with a cross on its eastern edge, only a few steps from the Dablice Astronomical Observatory. By favourable weather conditions you can see extensive part of northern Bohemia as far as to the border Ore and Giant Mountains.
After having a look at faraway places (terrestrial or celestial), there is time to go on.

There are four Latin words around the foot of the cross. Use the shortest and the second shortest of words and convert them into numbers using common phone keyboard (A, B, C = 2 etc.). Then get the final position of cache according to the following formula.
(second shortest word - 1772) / 10 = nnnn
(shortest word + 1) x 3 = eeee
Cache is at N 50 0n.nnn E 014 2e.eee.
Good luck!


This is the second oldest cache in Prague 8 (after GCGTFH).
Tato cache je druha nejstarsi na Praze 8 (po GCGTFH).
