Geocache Description:



Rozhledna na Vratenske hore u Msena

Puvodni drevena vez z roku 1893, pocitacem vytvorena studie nove rozhledny a skutecnost (na snimku ze zari 1999)

Obrovsky rozmach turistiky na konci 19. stoleti s sebou prinesl i vystavbu nebyvaleho mnozstvi vyhlidkovych staveb. Behem let 1890-1899 bylo v ceskych zemich postaveno temer padesat rozhleden. Je to k nevire, ale o sto let pozdeji se situace jakoby opakuje. Vysledkem novodobe rozhlednove horecky je jiz dvacata vyhlidkova vez vybudovana po roce 1990. Ta nejmladsi se tyci na Vratenske hore, na hranici ceskolipskeho a melnickeho okresu.

Lookout on Vratenska Mountain by Mseno town. The giant expansion of turism in the end of 19th century brought a building of unprecedented number of sightseeing constructions. In the years 1890-1899 there were built about fifty outlook-towers in the Czech countries. It seems incredible that about one hundred years later the situation repeated. A results of modern lookout boom were the twentieth sightseeing towers built in the year 1990. The youngest one towers above Vratenská Mountain, at territorial boundaries of Ceska Lipa and Melnik shires.

Neni vsak prvni stavbou na tomto 508 metru vysokem vrcholu vevodicim turisticky vdecne krajine Kokorinska a Podbezdezi. Tou byla drevena vyhlidkova vez zrizena v roce 1893 Okraslovacim spolkem pro Mseno a okoli. Spolek nemel prilis penez, a proto rad vyuzil nabidku mesta, které mu nabidlo vyslouzilou hasicskou vez. Clenove ji rozebrali, pomoci konskych povozu prevezli pod horu a jednotlive dily rucne vynesli na vrchol. Pod vedenim tesare Legnera ji tam znovu sestavili a doplnili o pohodlne schodiste a ochrannou strisku. Dvoupatrova rozhledna merila 12 m. Staral se o ni místní hajny, ktery rovnez vybiral vstupne. („10 krejcaru za osobu, 5 za ditko, zdarma pro cleny spolku a studujici", jak se muzeme docist ve starem pruvodci.) S udrzbou rozhledny vsak byly velke starosti. Proto ji spolek po nekolika letech provozu nabidl bohatsimu Klubu ceskych turistu. Jeho vedeni si vsak nechtelo pridelavat problemy, a tak vez zustala ponechana svemu osudu, ktery se zavrsil nekdy kolem roku 1903.

But it wasn't the first construction on this 508 metres high peak that dominantes the tourist thankful landscape of Kokorinsko and Podbezdezi. That was a wooden outlook-tower founded in the year 1893 by Beautify society of Mseno town and its neighborhood. This society didn't have money enouhg, so it took with pleasure an offer of the town, to use a left-off fireman tower. The society members took fireman the tower down, transported it under the mountain by horse vehicles and component parts took up the peak. Under a leadership of the carpenter Legner they completed it again and supplemented it by comfortable staircase and protective marquise. Double-decked outlook-tower was high only 12 metres. A local warrener carried about it and obtained entrance money. („10 kreutzers per person, 5 per baby, free members of society and students", as we can read in an old guidebook.) But there were a lot of worries about an outlook-tower service. So the society offered it to better situated Czech Tourist Club past only the few days usage. A management of the Club didn´t want to add themselves any worries and left the tower to its fate. And its fate was definitely sealed about the year 1903.

Jeji obnovu si vytklo za cil Sdruzeni obci Kokorinska (SOK), zalozene pocatkem 90. let a zastupujici zajmy 19 okolnich vesnic a mest. Cesta od myslenky k realizaci byla ovsem dlouha a uz vubec ne primocara. Vedeni SOK se sice dohodlo s provozovatelem site mobilních telefonu na spolecne investici, ale odmitlo jeho predstavu smerujici k typizovane prihradove konstrukci. Vitezem nekolikrat opakovaneho vyberoveho rizeni se nakonec stala cesko-rakouska firma, ktera prisla se zajimavym navrhem plechem oplastene veze s atypickym trojuhelnikovym pudorysem a se zastresenou vyhlidkovou plosinou. Takovemu projektu mohla dat zelenou i Sprava Chranene krajinne oblasti Kokorinsko. Prace na temer osmimilionove investicni akci byla zahajena 6. cervence polozenim zakladniho kamene a dokoncena behem necelych tri mesicu. Cela konstrukce, vcetne nosicu anten meri 42 metru, pricemz vyhlidkova plosina se naleza ve 25 metrech.

The Association of Kokorin Villages (SOK), was found in the beginning of 90. years and represented the interests of 19 neighbouring villages and towns. It pointed out itself a recovery of the outlook-tower. A way from an idea to a realization was of course long and never straight motion. SOK agreed on a common investment with an entrepreneur of phone net, but refused his idea lead to a standardize truss construction. A selection procedure had to be repeated a several times. A Czech-Austrian company, that became finally a winner, find out an interesting project to built a plate sheating tower with an atypism trianguloid platform and roofed sightseeing platform. To that project could be given green light by The Safekeeping of Protected Landscape Area of Kokorinsko. Building operations at about 8 millions krowns complete plant equipment were started in July the 6th by laying the foundation stone and were completed during 3 monthes. All the construction, including antennas supports measures 42 meters, whereas sightseeing platform is situated in 25 meters.

Rozhled z nove rozhledny, poprve otevrene ve svatecni den 28. rijna 1999, za prizniveho pocasi obsahne az prekvapive velkou cast Cech: od Bezdezu pres Prahu, Rip, kuzele Ceskeho stredohori, Luzicke hory, siluetu Jestedu a dokonce i vzdalene vrcholky Krkonos.

The new outlook-tower was the first time opened in national holiday 28. October 1999 in kindly weather. A wiew from it spans an astonishing large part of Bohemia: from Bezdez mountain to Prague, Rip mountain, cones of Czech Middlemountains, Luzicke mountains, a contour of Jested mountain and even far tops of Krkonose mountains.

A jak se dostat na Vratenskou horu? Automobiliste mohou vyuzit nove parkoviste zrizene na okraji Libovic, prakticky jen nekolik desitek metru od rozhledny. Pesi turisty dovede az na vrchol nove vyznacena odbocka z modre znacky prochazejici Nosalovem.

And how to get on Vratenska mountain? Automobilists can used a new car park opened at a boundary of Libovice village, practically only a several tens of metres from outlook-tower. A newly signalized turning of blue sign from Nosalov bring the walking tourists till the peak.
