Geocache Description:

[Czech] Nenarocna a rychla turisticka cache u hradu Spilberk. Blizko je pekny vyhled na Brno.
[English] Simple and short tourist geocache near Spilberk castle. There's a nice outlook at Brno around.

[Czech – cesky]

Vaclav Babinsky byl jednim z nejznamnejsich obyvatelu hradu Spilberk, v jehoz parku se tato jednoducha cache nachazi. Kdyby si ale sam mohl vybrat, jiste by zvolil jinou adresu nez tuto brnenskou veznici, kde v letech 1841 az 1855 nedobrovolne prebyval.

Legendy, pisne a brakova literatura udelala z Babinskeho takrka kultovni postavu. Do spolecnosti Janosika, Koziny nebo dokonce snad loupeznika Rumcajse ale v zadnem pripade nepatri. Byl to zlocinec: zlodej, nasilnik a nakonec i vrah.

V Kmenove knize spilberských veznu lze o Babinskem najit tyto vety: „Telesne zdráv, jinak velmi nebezpecný clovek. Byl ve spojení s velkou loupežnickou a zlodejskou tlupou, je velmi zchytralý a podnikavý. Dvakrát se pokusil o útek vylámáním zpusobem životu nebezpecným z velké výšky a jiné navádel.“

Kdyz bylo vezeni na Spilberku v roce 1855 zruseno, odpykal si Babinsky zbytek sveho dvacetileteho trestu ve veznici v Kartouzech, dnesnich Valdicich. Po propusteni pracoval jako zahradnik, az do sve smrti v roce 1879.

Mestsky park Spilberk o rozloze 17 hektaru je spolu se stejnojmennym hradem prohlasen Narodni kulturni pamatkou.

[English – anglicky]

Vaclav Babinsky was one of the best-known occupants of Spilberk castle. But if he could choose his residence, he sure doesn’t select this Brno prison, where he was involuntarily jailed in years 1841–1855. Legends, songs and garbage books made a cult person from Babinsky. But he was a common criminal: theft, robber and murderer.

The prison on Spilberk was closed on 1855 and Babinsky spent the rest of his punishment in prison Kartouzy, today known as Valdice. He worked as a gardener after the release until his death on 1879.

This cache is hidden in a park near the castle Spilberk.
