Geocache Description:

CZ: Dominantou mesta s 5000 obyvatel, leziciho 40km JZ od Plzne, je statni zamek zalozeny prazskym biskupem jiz v roce 1258 jako goticka falc. Po pozaru v roce 1547 byl prestaven ve stylu italske renesance. Zamecky park o rozloze 40ha skryva vzacne dreviny, ale i barokni sypku, renesancni dum, micovnu, osmiboky barokni pavilon a vyhlidkovou vez. Jedine co prinese navstevnikovi trochu rozcarovani je rozdeleni prohlidky, zrejmne v zajmu zvyseni vydelku, az na 6 samostatnych okruhu.

Ale i samotne mesto rozlozene na obou brezich Radbuzy, ktere se stalo jednou z nasich prvnich mestskych pamatkovych rezervaci, ma co nabidnout. Primo pred zamkem na hlavnim namesti Republiky komplex gotickych domu s pristavenymi stity ve stylu lidoveho baroka, zvonici, pozdne gotickou, renesancne prestavenou radnici a kostel sv Petra a Pavla s vyhlidkovou, o prazdninach otevrenou vezi. Dale ve meste 2 dalsi kostely s cennou vnitrni vyzdobou a byvaly kapucinsky klaster s rodinnou hrobkou Trauttmansdorffu. A nekolik pouzitelnych restauraci.

S mesteckem je spojena i rada osobnosti z nasich dejin, zejmena pak 1.prazsky arcibiskup Arnost z Pardubic (1297-1364), 1.cesky cirkevni reformator Jan Milic z Kromerize (1320-1374) a 1.slovensky pisici basnik Jan Sylvan (1493-1573). Ma i sve relativne slavne rodaky jako je Felix Kadlinsky (1613-1675), vlastenecky jezuita typu, nikoliv vsak bohuzel proslulosti B. Balbina a predevsim Josef Jan Littrow (1781-1840), matematik a astronom svetoveho vyznamu, postupne reditel nekolika evropskych hvezdaren, ale rovnez i ucitel prosluleho ruskeho matematika N.I.Lobacevskeho, spolutvurce konceptu neeukleidovskych geometrii.

ENG: The dominating feature of the city, 40 km south-west from Pilsen with 5 000 inhabitants, represents the state owned castle founded by the Prague bishop in 1258 as a gothic palatium. After a fire in 1547 the castle was reconstructed in the style of Italian Renaissance. In the park with the area of 40 hectares one can find precious trees, baroque granary, house in the style of Renaissance, ballroom, pavilion in the style of baroque with eight sides and the sightseeing tower. The only disillusion the visitor will feel is the fact that the excursion is divided into 6 separate circles, probably with the reason to gain higher profit.

Also the city itself being situated on the both sides of the river Radbuza, which became one of our first city historical reservations can offer a lot of interesting things. On the main square Namestí Republiky located just in front of the castle one can find the complex of the gothic houses with the gables constructed in the popular baroque style, belfry, the city hall built in the late gothic style and reconstructed in the style of Renaissance , the St. Peter and St. Paul church and the sightseeing tower that is open during the summer holidays. Downtown we can find the other two churches with precious internal decorations, the former Capuchin Monastery with the family crypt of Trauttmansdorff. And several restaurants that can be used.

There are several historical personalities connected with the city. Mainly the first archbishop Arnost from Pardubice (1297-1364), the first Czech reformer Jan Milic from Kromeriz (1320-1374) and the first poet writing in Slovak language Jan Sylvan (1493-1537). Several important personalities were born in the city, e.g. Felix Kadlinsky (1613-1675), the patriotic Jesuit and mainly Josef Jan Littrow (1781-1840), mathematician and astronomer of worldwide significance who was the director of several European observatories and who was the teacher of the famous Russian mathematician N. I. Lobacevski, who was the coauthor of the concept of the noneukleidian geometry.

CZ: Cache je ukryta v zameckem parku, ktery je pristupny geocacherovym choutkam celorocne v kteroukoliv denni i nocni hodinu, protoze pres nej vede zlute znacena turisticka steska. O pulnoci zde ovsem pravdepodobne strasi.

ENG: Cache is hidden in the park of the castle, that is accessible to geocacherist whims for the whole year at any time of the day or night, because there is the yellow tourist line going through. But no one knows whether the park is not haunted in midnight.
