dandra: Farewell, my dearest sister, fare thee well:
The elements be kind to thee, and make
Thy spirits all of comfort! fare thee well.


Cache jsou jako milenky.
Zaujmou, poskadli, potesi,
pozlobi, roznezni, potrapi,
ale nikdy nezevsedni.
A pokud snad ano,
pak jen proto, ze jiz
nechtely byt milenkami.
Milenci prec nemaji brat,
co sami nechteji dat.

Diky, pixlicko, mel jsem te rad.
Vsak nastal cas rici: "Sbohem!"
A v dobrem vzpominat... [;)]

Geocache Description:

[CZ] Odpocinkovou multi-cache v oaze Frantiskanske zahrady jsem venoval nahodnym a neopakovatelnym setkanim jineho druhu. Nespechejte a vsimejte si. Trpelivost se vyplaci
[EN] Take a rest in the Franciscan Garden. This cache is devoted to unforgettable but never repeated meetings. Don't hurry. Patiency pays off ;)

[CZ] Uvodni souradnice vas zavedou na roh Jungmannova namesti k brane, ktera je jednim ze dvou vstupu do Frantiskanske zahrady.

Frantiskanska zahrada
Rozlohou nevelkou, ale o to milejsi Frantiskanskou zahradu u kostela Panny Marie Snezne jiz od stredoveku obhospodarovali mnisi z radu Frantiskanu. Spise nez k oddechu tehdy slouzila k pestovani bylinek, kvetin, ovoce, zeleniny a dokonce i koreni. Zahrada byla nekolikrat ve sve historii znicena a vyplenena. Tu prazskou spodinou, ondy zase venkovskymi loupezivymi bandami. Naposledy z ni Nemci za valky udelali protipozarni nadrz. Posledni rekonstrukci prosla v letech 1989-92, aby nabrala svou dnesni podobu, vychazejici z rane barokniho cleneni. Puvodni kapli z prelomu 17. a 18. stoleti prestaveli na zahradni altan, ale bylinkarska zahradka okolo zustala. Pribyly sochy a nova brana s vyjevy ze zivota Sv. Frantiska z Assisi. Zahrada nyni slouzi nejen jako spojnice z Vaclavskeho namesti pres pasaz Svetozor na namesti Jungmannovo, ale hlavne jako ojedinela oaza uprostred nejrusnejsi casti metropole.

Nejkrasneji je zde na jare, kdy rozkvetou ovocne stromy, aby zanedlouho predaly zezlo kvetum popinavych ruzi. Neuveritelny klid zahrady primo vybizi k tomu, aby znaveny obcan usednul, pripadne deti vypustil na prilehle hriste, precetl si par kapitol knizky, sporadal dvojitou zmrzlinu, spocital finalku multinky , anebo...

... anebo se vam prihodi neco podobneho, co mne jednoho slunneho odpoledne. Toho roku, kdy byla dokoncena rekonstrukce zahrady, jsem tu jen tak bloumal a rovnal si myslenky pocitanim lamp. Muj pohled se najednou zadrhnul na velmi nevsednim objektu. Seherezada! Kovove havranni vlasy az po pas, smyslne rty a oci s zarem uhliku. Jednadvacet let a zkusenosti tak akorat. Sedela na lavicce, tvar nastavovala paprskum a jen skripta filosofie v kline nevtirave upominala, ze by se mela ucit na zkousku. Když jsem uz potretí radoby nevsimave prochazel kolem, poposedla si, jakoby chtela rict: "je tu volno". Nase pohledy se protnuly, vzduchem zavibrovalo par mamivych slov a za chvili uz jsme predstirali studium hermeneutiky ve dvou.

Ach, ja fabuloval, vymyslel si, bajil a mlzil. Vedel jsem, ze ona vi, ze ja nevim. Presto ale poslouchala pozorne. Dlouhymi cernymi rasami schvalovala kazde sluvko. Nejvíce ji zaujal muj sverazny vyklad o Schleiermacherove porozumeni. Kdyz se osmelila, navazala pak velmi volnou interpretací Heideggerova byti a dlouhymi prsty se pritom probirala mymi vlasy. Z jeji prednasky si ale pamatuju jen ten jeji nasladly dech, mekkost rtu a slaby ton levandule ve vuni na jejim krku.

Kdeze je dnes asi konec Seherezade. Dokonce ani nevim, jak tehdy dopadla u zkousky. Neozvala se a ja jeji cislo nekam zasel. Zahradou od te doby prochazim temer denne jiz mnoho let. Puvabnych krasek jsem potkal nepocitane, ale tu "moji" Seherezadu jsem uz nikdy nespatril. Kdybyste ji zahledli, dejte mi, prosim, vedet. Tehdy jsem si k ni prisedl na:

N 50 04.GAR E014 25.DEN

Nenajdete-li Seherezadu, pak by tam nekde kolem mela byt schranka pro vzkaz. Klicem k jejimu nalezeni je magicke cislo GARDEN, ktere se presne rovna desetinasobku nejnizsiho cisla lampy v zahrade snizeneho o nejvyssi cislo lampy tamtez a zvyseneho o letopocet, kdy Seherezada bude slavit ctyricetiny. Kod muzete vycarovat, anebo se projit, pokoukat, popremyslet a spocitat. Treba cestou potkate taky nekoho zajimaveho. Ve dvou se totiz i cache lovi lepe

Pokud se vam zde v zahrade nebo i jinde v minulosti stalo neco podobneho, sverte svuj pribeh do logu

Pozn: Cislem lampy se rozumi to 6mistne na hlinikovem stitku. Technicke typy necht venuji pozornost matematicke interpretaci zadani u waypointu. Pri hledani, prosim, budte ohleduplni jak k mudlum, tak i ke kacerum, kteri prijdou hledat po vas. Nepokousejte se fusovat do remesla mistnim zahradnikum. V zemi ani na cemkoli rostoucim schranku nenajdete! Zahrada se pres noc zavira. Oteviraci hodiny jsou 7/8-19/20/22 podle rocniho obdobi.


[EN] The charming Franciscan Garden (Frantiskanska zahrada) finds itself tucked between Jungmannovo Square, Wenceslas Square, Vodickova and Palackého streets in the heart of the New Town. It is a lovely setting right next to the Church of Virgin Mary of the Snows, and a welcome oasis of calm in the middle of the bustling city center.

The area already served as a garden in the 14th century when the New Town was being built. Its restoration was completed in 1992 and it now serves as a public garden with benches, trees and lots of rose bushes. It is open daily from 7 or 8 a.m. to 7, 8 or 10 p.m., depending on the time of year.

The garden is not very large and it is mainly designed for relaxation. You can sit on one of its many benches, eat ice cream that you bought in the adjoining Pasaz Svetozor and watch people. Notice the gate at second entrance depicting the life of St. Francis of Assisi as well as two modern sculptures. There is also a small children's playground with a sand box and swings.

This cache is devoted to special one-time meetings with people who we miss now. I had one of them right here in the same year when the garden was restored. She was a very sympathetic 21-year old student of philosophy. Imagine... long black hair, deep eyes, fleshy lips. I called her Sheherezad. We spent an entire afternoon in the garden together. Unfortunately we have never met again.

Maybe you find her there. Maybe you find someone else with whom you can spend long hours by talking, smiling, simply having a good time. And if you do, then it's good for you. Even cache hunting is better in two .

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you about the hide. It is located at the place where I met my Shererazad. First, find the garden lamps with the highest and the lowest numbers on their aluminium tags. Then figure out the year of Sheherezade's 40th birthday. The number GARDEN is ten times the lowest number of the garden lamp decreased by the highest lamp number and increased by the year when Shererezade will celebrate her 40th. (Technical type of cachers please consult the formula in the waypoint description.) As soon as you cunjure it up you can sign the logbook at

N 50 04.GAR E014 25.DEN

Beware of muggles please. Don't try to dabble in gardening here. You won't find the cache neither in the soil, nor attached to anything growing anyway
