Geocache Description:


V Praze najdeme dva velke "hrady" - Prazsky hrad na levem a Vysehrad na pravem brehu Vltavy. Dominantou Prazskeho hradu je samozrejme chram Sv. Vita, na Vysehrade se tyci kostel Sv. Petra a Pavla. A v Praze je jen jedine misto, kde se obe tyto pamatky "prekryvaji" tak, jak je videt na pripojene fotografii, o ktere si rada lidi mysli, ze se jedna o fotomontaz :-).

Prazske hrady

Mikrocache je umistena v malem klidnem parku vedle Podolskeho hrbitova. Vasim ukolem bude (samozrejme krome nalezeni vlastni cache) pokusit se o vyfoceni zakrytu obou prazskych dominant a poslat obrazek primerene velikosti na tuto stranku. Logy bez fotografie nebudou uznany!

Upozorneni 1: Misto, ktere je nejvhodnejsi k fotografovani, neni totozne s mistem ukryti kese ale je asi 70 metru daleko. Pokud s jeho nalezenim budete mit problemy (coz nepredpokladam), muzete pouzit napovedu. Pro fotografovani doporucuji teleobjektiv.
Upozorneni 2: kostel na Vysehrade je asi 1,5 kilometru a Prazsky hrad asi 5 kilometru daleko. Za spatnych klimatickych podminek (mlha, opar, smog) nemusi byt viditelnost takova, aby byly obe dominanty videt! V takovem pripade mate smulu a budete muset dorazit jindy - stejne jste tu hlavne kvuli tomu pohledu :-) !


There are two main "castles" in Prague - The Prague Castle on the left bank and Vysehrad on the right bank of Vltava river. The most visible dominants are the cathedral of St. Vitus at Prague Castle and the church of St. Peter and Pavel at Vysehrad. And there is just one place in Prague, where the church and cathedral "overlap" in a way shown at the attached picture. Many people think it is a montage :-).

Microcache is hidden in a small and quiet park in the neighbourhood of Podoli cemetery. Your mission is (beside of founding the cache itself) to take a picture of overlaping churches and to send such picture together with your log to this page. The logs without appropriate picture will not be accepted!

Note 1: The place which is best suitable for taking the picture is not the same where the cache is hidden - it is about 70 meters away. If you have problems to find it (I suppose not), you can use the hint to get the coordinates.
Note 2: The church at Vysehrad is about 1,5 kilometer and the Prague castle is about 5 kilometers away. Under the bad climatic conditions (fog, smog) the visibility could be poor and the churches can be invisible! In such case you are unlucky and you will need to come back otherwhile - you are here because of the view anyway :-) !
