Geocache Description:


.: Cache IN - Koš OUT :.
SK Clovek svojou cinnostou oddavna meni raz krajiny, co si mnohokrat ziada obete nielen na prirode, ale aj na ludoch samotnych. Vsetci pozname osudy Slanice a inych obci po vystavbe Oravskej priehrady, ci dediny Liptovska Mara, ktora uz dedinou nie je. Aj hornonitriansku obec Kos predcasom vyludnila energetika. Jej obyvatelia doplatili na ohromne zasoby paliva priamo pod svojimi pivnickami...

SK O Kosi (onehda to bol este Andreasdorf) sa prvykrat pisomne zmienil uhorsky palatin Ladislav z Opole soltyskou listinou z roku 1367. V roku 1409 uz bol dokonceny kostol, kam obyvatelstvo (najma sedliaci a zeliari) chodilo nacerpat nadej po mnohych kuruckych a tureckych vpadoch. Obec sa v dedicnom vlastnictve Palffyovcov pekne rozvijala, az v 2.polovici 20-teho storocia dosiahla 3500 obyvatelov so slusnou hospodarskou, kulturnou a sportovou vybavenostou. V roku 1971 bol prijaty program rozvoja palivovo-energetickej zakladne statu, ktoreho riesenie neuprosne zasiahlo do zivota obce, zalozenej rovno na zasobach uholneho sloja - lignitu.

SK V 80-tych rokoch sa zacalo podrubanie sidla hlbinnou tazbou novackeho loziska, spolu s demolaciou objektov obce a odpojenim inzinierskych sieti. Vyse 2000 obyvatelov bolo vysidlenych do novovybudovanej Kanianky a dalsich 600 ludi do okolitych obci. Na druhej strane, v prirodnej krajine sa v dosledku poklesovych kotlin v katastralnom uzemi vytvorili najhodnotnejsie mokradové biotopy na hornej Nitre. Po roku 1989 bol program tazby postupne utlmeny a zvysok obce s 850 obyvatelmi postupne oziva. Nepochybnou zaujimavostou je, ze v decembri 2000 sa uspesne a bez akehokolvek poskodenia uskutocnil ojediny transport takmer 400-tonovej gotickej svatine z 15. storocia do bezpecnejsej casti obce.

EN For a long ages, man is changing country features detrimental either to nature and people themselves. Many slovak villages had been moved and drowned after building of water dams in Orava and Liptov. Village Kos in Upper Nitra region was displaced because of energetics as well. It’s inhabitants paid off huge funds of lignite under their cellars...

SK In the year 1971 was signed up a program of national energetical development, with rough result for 3500 inhabitants of Kos. In the 80-ties, mining of lignit ore under village of Kos started, as well as building demolition and over 2000 of inhabitants had to move to newly-built site Kanianka and other villages. On the other hand, because of basin decline of countryside, unique wetland ecosystem has been created in location. After 1989, mining program slowed down and the rest of village with 850 inhabitant is continuously reviving. In december 2000 was successfully transported 400-ton gothic chapel from 15th century to safer village location, right beside new identical copy of this chapel.
