Geocache Description:

[ENG] Cache is placed nearby the view-tower in a plastic tubs (c.1,5 l), several minutes from city centre Marianske Lazne.

Vznik prvnich rozhleden je svazan s vlnou romantismu. Ten se vyznacoval nejen proklamovanym navratem k prirode, ale take napodobovanim historickych staveb, nejlepe i s jejich patinou. Tak se zrodilo tez nekolik vyhlidkovych staveb v podobe "umelych ruin". Na nasem uzemi je asi nejznamejsim reprezentantem teto skupiny rozhleden HAMELIKA v Marianskych Laznich. O podobu rozhledny se vedly velice dlouho ruzne debaty. To proto, ze architekt Fridrich Zickler vytvoril plany, jez znamenaly postaveni 20 metru vysoke valcove kamenne veze s otevrenou vyhlidkovou plosinou - a prave nekryta vyhlidkova plosina vyvolavala v radnich nelibost. Mysleli si, ze by navstevnici jiste uvitali zastreseni. Nakonec ale vyhral puvodni navrh, protoze nejlepe odpovidal pozadovanemu charakteru stavby. Ta trvala pouhych nekolik letnich mesicu, proto mohla byt na podzim v temze roce slavnostne otevrena verejnosti - v roce 1876.



[CZ]vyhlidkova vez v nejvyssim bodu vrchu Hamelika v nadmorske vysce 722,6 m. Valcovita, 20 m vysoka kamenna vez o prumeru 5,5 m ma uvnitr tocite kamenne schodiste se sto schody, vedoucími na vyhlidkovou polosinu, odkud je krasny rozhled na lazenskou cast mesta, vrcholy Ceskeho a Slavkovskeho lesa, a na Chebsko.

[ENG]It was the town council that initiated building of the viewing tower on the highest point of the Hamelika hill, at an altitude of 722,6 m. The cylindrical, 20 m high stone tower is 5,5 m in diameter and there is a spiral staircase consisting of a hundred stairs inside. They will lead you to a viewing platform from which you can get a wonderful view of the spa part of the town, the hills of the Cesky les Mountains, the region of Cheb and the Slavkovsky les Mountains.
