Geocache Description:

[LAT] Jelgavas vecpilseta
[ENG] Oldtown of Jelgava

Dobeles, Vecpilsetas un Jana Asara ielas krustojuma saglabajusies Jelgavas vecaka apbuves dala, kas netika iznicinata Otra pasaules kara gados. Apbuves rajons celts laika no 18. lidz 19. gadsimtam un ir Latvijas nozimes pilsetbuvniecibas piemineklis. Diemžel pašlaik koka ekas iet boja, jo daudziem namiem nav kartigu saimnieku, kas spetu rupeties par arhitekturas pieminekliem.

Pie vecas adu apstrades fabrikas, kas celta 1865. gada, atradas viduslaiku pilsetas Dobeles varti. Savulaik pavisam bijuši pat astoni varti dažados virzienos. 17.gadsimta ap Jelgavu bija augsts valnis vai udens kanals, tadel iebraukt un izklut no pilsetas vareja tikai pa vartiem. Dobeles varti vera celu uz Kurzemi.

Par godu vesturiskajiem vartiem uzstadita simboliska pieminas zime – dzelzs vartu stabs ar mura motivu, kura iestradats akmens ar vesti, ka šeit 17. gadsimta bijuši Dobeles varti. Slepnis novietots netalu no pieminas zimes.

Crossing Dobeles, Vecpilsetas and Jana Asara streets there is the oldest construction part, which was not destroyed in the World war two. Construction part is built from 18th till 19th century and it is the townbuilding monument of Latvia. Unfortunately, wooden buildings are wasted, because many buildings there are without really housekeepers, who could take care about them. Near an old leather factory, which was built in 1865, there was medieval town Dobele gate. There were 8 gates in different directions. In 17th century there was a high rampart or water chanel around Jelgava and that was a matter why a movement went through the gates. Dobeles gate made a way to Kurzeme. In honour of historical gate was made a symbolic memory sign- an iron pillar with brick motive, in which you can find a message, that in17th century in this place there was Dobeles gate. An ambush is hidden not far this honour sign.
