Geocache Description:

[CZ] Jde o bridlicový lom, delka 500 m, sirka asi 30-70 m, hloubka asi 36 m. Nachazi se za obci Svobodne Hermanice (ta se nacházi zhruba v pulce mezi Opavou a Bruntalem) smerem na Staré Hermínovy a jeho romantiku kazi v poslednich letech obnovená tezba. Nicmene je stale velkym lakadlem pro potapece, kteri sem jezdi i z daleka. K lomu je v horni casti zakaz vstupu, i pres to je to zname prirodni koupaliste, bez sluzeb. Keska je vsak mimo tento zakaz. V blizkosti je take pekne, stare nádrazi – jeste nedavno sem jezdil vlak jednou denne, nyni uz vubec. Ve vesnici je hospoda. Keska se nachszi asi 100m od hlavniho lomu. Nejlepsi pristup je cestou kolem nadrazi, kterou doporucuji.

[EN] It is a slate quarry 500 m long, width about 30-70 m and depth about 36 m. You can find it behind Svobodné Hermanice village (Svobodne Hermanice village is situated about half way between cities of Opava and Bruntál) in the direction of Staré Hermínovy. In the last years, quarry romanticism has been damaged by renewal of the slate extraction. In spite of that damage, the slate quarry is still big attraction for scuba divers who come here from far away. It is prohibited to enter the upper part of the quarry; however, the area is used as a natural open air pool (unattended). The cache is outside the restricted area. Nearby, there is also very nice old train station. Not long ago there used to be one train a day, but not anymore. There is a pub in the village. The cache is located approximately 100 meters from the main quarry. The best access, which I recommend, is through the road around the train station.
