Geocache Description:

Libensky ostrov - kde bezi cas/Liben Island - where time is passing

CS: Pro tuto kesku jsem zamerne neuploadoval zadne fotografie a neuvadim ani presne udaje o miste, kde je ukryta. Je to proto, ze Libensky ostrov (presneji velky poloostrov) na prazske periferii je tak ruznorody a promenlivy, ze zadny popis by stejne neplatil prilis dlouho.

Toto misto, ktere vyzaruje silny, hrabalovsky genius loci, jsem objevil priblizne pred 15 lety. Protoze cely ostrov lezi v zaplavove oblasti - nemyslim jen velkou povoden v r. 2002, ale zaplavy jsou tady pomerne caste - neda se tu postavit nic staleho. Mista (a lide) prichazeji a odchazeji...

Napr. pitoreskni starozitnictvi, kde se prodavaly stare obrazy a sosky z doby Rakouska-Uherska, ktere jsem objevil v r. 1999 nebo 2000, uz zde neni (a priznacne nemohu najit dokonce ani fotografie, ktere jsem tehdy poridil).

Velka hala s mostovym jerabem, v niz se stavely velke ricni lode, dnes slouzi jako obrovsky sklad nabytku, a lode, ktere se tam vyrabely, najdete, rezave a napul potopene, na zrusenem srotisti na severni strane ostrova.

Jedine, co zustava, je dum s malou zahradou a bizarnimi sochami, ktere jako by sem vubec nepatrily. Nikdy jsem nezjistil, komu patri a proc jsou sochy vystaveny na tak podivnem miste...

Nepochybuji, ze objevite dalsi veci, ktere jsem na tom miste nikdy nespatril a ktere brzy zmizi. Na Libenskem ostrove si uvedomite, ze hora fugit - doslova, cas bezi - a nic se nikdy neopakuje.

Prijemne hledani!

EN: For this cache, I have intentionally uploaded no photographs and provided no precise specification of the place where it is hidden. The reason is that the Island (or, more precisely, a large peninsula) of Liben on the outskirts of Prague where the cache is hidden is so multi-faceted and ever-changing that no desciption could hold for very long.

I discovered the place, which emanated strong, Hrabalesque genius loci, approximately 15 years ago. Because the whole island is an inundated area - I don't mean only the big one in 2002, but the floodings come rather regularly - nothing permanent can be built there. Places (and people) come and go...

For instance, the picturesque bric-a-brac shop that offered antique paintings and statuettes from the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire I found in 1999 or 2000 is no more there (symptomatically, I cannot even find the photographs of it I made).

The huge structure with a bridge crane used once for building large river boats has now shut down and the hall is used as a mammoth storehouse of furniture; the boats made there can be found, covered with rust and half sunk, in a derelict junkyard on the Northern side of the island.

The only thing that remains in place is a house with a small garden and bizarre statues, seemingly not belonging there at all. I've never found who owns the place and why the statues are exhibited in a place so weird...

I have no doubt you will find other things there, things I've never seen there, and things that will soon be gone. Hora fugit - literally, the time is running - on the Island of Liben and things are never the same there.

Enjoy your search!
