Geocache Description:

Webkamera je umistena v jednom z oken jicinskeho zamku smerujicich na Valdstejnovo namesti. Kamera zabira jeho cast s kasnou a morovym sloupem.
Webcam is operating in one of windows of Jicin castle directed to the Valdstejnovo namesti (Wallenstein square). Space covered by webcam is only part of the square with a fountain and plaquey pillar.

Jicin (Jitcino mesto) je poprvé zminovan v listine kralovny Guty (Jitky) z 1. srpna 1293. Mestem se stal na r. 1302. Mesto bylo zalozeno kolem obdelníkoveho namesti, ktere se nyni nazyva Valdstejnovo. Po celem obvodu mesta, zvlaste pak u mestské dominanty Valdicke brany a u zameckeho parku jsou dochovany casti mestskeho opevneni. Za vlady Albrechta z Valdstejna zazilo mesto nejvetsi rozmach. Vytvoril z Jicina rezidenci vevodstvi Frydlandskeho. Zamek byl dokoncen v lete roku 1633. Vedle zamku stoji ne zcela dokonceny chram sv. Jakuba Vetsiho, ktery je propojen se zamkem spojovaci chodbou.

Jicin (City of Jitka) was mentioned for the first time in 1293. It was founded around rectangle square called Valdsteinovo (Wallenstein’s). One can see remains of city walls mainly beside Valdice tower and a castle park. In time of rule of Wallenstein Jicin became a capital of its Duchy of Frydland. The castle was built in 1633. Near the castle there is the church of St. Jacob Greater, which is connected to the castle by a corridor.

Nezapomente sebou vzit:
arch (bileho) papiru
snimek namesti s kodovaci tabulkou (Jicin_abc.jpg a Tabulka kodu Jicin.jpg)
hodinky a tuzku

Je treba nechat se kamerou opakovane sejmout s archem bileho papiru (nebo necim podobne vyraznym - napr. zlutou plastenkou nebo cervenym destnikem) nastavenym smerem k jihu v ruznych mistech namesti (podle kodovaci tabulky na snimku) tak, aby se dal dekodovat nickname kacera /minimum pro uznani nalezu jsou prvni tri spravna pismena/. Obnovovaci cyklus webkamery je 1 minuta, takze vam to zabere nejaky cas /vemte si sebou obcerstveni :)/. Viceclenne tymy maji vyhodu rychlejsiho kodovani, ale i tak je treba nickname zapsat postupne.
Do logu napiste cas zacatku a konce Vasi exhibice - pro kontrolu se muzete podivat na (visit link)
Nekdy se stane, ze webkamera je vypnuta, nesejme snimek snimek neni zaznamenan v archivu nebo z objektivnich pricin nelze kodovani pouzit. Opravdu souhrou okolnosti se to muze stat i Vam - i v tom pripade Vam muze byt log uznan, pokud prilozite svou fotku z namesti nebo misto kodovani napisete svuj log napr. do snehu.

Don’t forget to take with You:
sheet of (white) paper
snap of the Wallenstein square with Table of Codes (Jicin_abc.jpg and Tabulka kodu Jicin.jpg)
watches and pen or pencil

Let the webcam to take several snaps of You and the white paper sheet (or something clear-cutting: eg. yellow mantle, red umbrella) oriented to the South in different places of the square according Table of Codes. The find will be approved only when at least thee first letters of Your nickname can be read from snaps of the webcam properly (one snap every one minute - it can take You longer time, don’t forget for refreshment). Teams with more members will be able to utilize the advantage of more rapid coding – nevertheless the letters shall be coded one by one.
Write time of beginning and time of end of Your exhibition into a log - to check Yourself You can look at (visit link)
Sometimes can happen that the webkamer is out of function, if does not take a snap, the snap is not archived or for certain purposes the coding table cannot be used. By chance it can happen also to You - even in that case the log can be accepted when You add Your photo from the square or write your log somehow (in snow for instance).
