haggaeus: I have decided to archive this one: too much maintenance activity in this park. Thanks everybody for the visit.
Ey Ukhnem III will be placed somewhere else in Spring, probably as a real hydrocache.

Geocache Description:

Cisarsky ostrov. Vyhled na plavebni kanal, blizko cesty.

Cisarsky ostrov - "Emperor's Island". View of the boating canal, close to the road.

Puvodni nadoba byla cache, kterou jsem schoval loni v lete u Delaware & Raritan kanalu v New Jersey. Kdyz jsem se stehoval zpet, zaarchivoval jsem ji a vzal s sebou: nadoba byla stale ve vybornem stavu, v logbooku mista dost, umistil jsem ji tedy beze zmeny na odpovidajici misto (mezi rekou a kanalem) v Praze. Po ani ne dvou mesicich byla ukradena, prozatim nahrazena microcachi.
Cisarsky ostrov byl zcela zaplaven pri povodnich v srpnu 2002 a dodnes muzete pozorovat jejich nasledky: zahradkarska kolonie byla zcela splachnuta, ostrov je vice zarostly plevelem. Porad je tu ale co videt: jezdci na konich, kajakari na umelem kanale v Troji, v blizkosti jsou takove atrakce jako pristaviste PPS (muzete se svezt k Jiraskovu mostu), ZOO, Trojsky zamecek, Stromovka a cistirna odpadnich vod s muzeem.

The original container was the cache I have hidden last summer in Delaware & Raritan Canal Park, New Jersey. When I was moving back, I have archived it and took it with me: the container was still in excellent shape, the logbook has free space enough, so I placed it without any change in an appropriate place (between a river and a canal) in Prague. In less than two months it was stolen - for now it has been replaced by a micro.
During the floods in August 2002, the island has been completely submerged. You can still see reminders of the floods: the gardens near the cache site have been washed away and the weeds have overgrown the whole island, but there is still something to watch: the island is popular for horseback riding, nearby is an artificial whitewater canal where you can watch the kayakers training. Nearby amenities include boat landing site (you can take a boat ride to downtown Prague), ZOO, Troja Chateau, Stromovka Park and the municipial wastewater plant with a museum.
