Barba.cz: Pratele, neni cas na hrdinstvi. Tato lokalita se pro mne stava prozatim tezko dostupnou. Casu je malo a povinnosti moc. Kes bych stejne neobnovoval do puvodniho umisteni a tak ji archivuji. Pokud se nikdo teto nadherne lokality neujme, zalozim tu novou kes az budu mit vic casu.

Geocache Description:


"...za rozpuklinou mraku stal zriceny hrad Jestrebi, co lod morska, v pestrych barvach oble duhy jako za barevnym zavojem."
tak videl K.H.Macha hrad pri pohledu z Bezdezu roku 1833.

Na nepristupne skale s prikrymi stenami, tedy na miste, ktere je jako stvorene pro opevnene sidlo, jej na konci 13. stoleti nechal postavit Jindrich Berka z Dube. Vyskove odstupnovane skalni plosiny byly pristupne pouze drevenymi schody, ktere bylo mozne v pripade ohrozeni hradu snadno odstranit.

Do dnesni doby se zachovalo uz jen malo pozustatku, ale podle zprav a rytin vypadal hrad jeste na sklonku 18. a 19. stoleti podstatne jinak nez dnes. Sestaval z palace a veze, zranitelna mista nahrazovaly zdi. Hospodarska staveni stala na plosine pod hradem. Skala vsak postupne zvetravala a povestmi zivena touha po objeveni pokladu zpusobila, ze se po upornem kopani zritily stropy. Patu skaly navic zuzilo dobyvani pisku. Skalni previsy zatizene zdivem hradu se pak snadno utrhly. Dnes tak zustala po hradu jiz jen silueta, ktera je viditelná ze sirokeho okoli.

Poklad tedy nebyl pres veskere usili nalezen a je docela mozne, ze se dodnes skryva v rozvalinach hradu...

(prestoze z puvodni rozlohy hradu zbyla jiz jen priblizne jedna ctvrtina, je stále na co se divat a hlavne je z nej nadherny vyhled. Vstup je jiz novogoticky a je realizovan byvalou hradni studnou )


Cache is hidden in ruins of castle Jestrebi. The castle is one from oldest in Czech country. In spite of fact that just 1quarter of original area survived, there are still a lot of things of admiration, mainly the view is magnificent in good weather and clear sky. Entrance was rebuilt to New Gothic style and is situated to the original castles' well.
