Slovene Karst And Caves In The Past

by Trevor Shaw, Slovene Karst And Caves In The Past Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Slovene Karst And Caves In The Past books, The caves and dramatic limestone scenery of the Slovene karst have attracted visitors for centuries. The great stalagmites and roaring underground rivers were seen by relatively few people at that time but many of them did record their experiences in diaries as well as in print. These are used in the book, which is a result of a long-time collaboration between an English historian of speleology and a Slovene historian, to describe what they saw and what they thought about it, with contemporary illustrations by contemporary artists and photographers. Modern tourism derives from the tours led by Thomas Cook who first came to Postojnska jama in 1868. Music in that cave has a very long history for dancing or concerts. This is only one example of the relation between caves and people as a constant theme in this book. Altogether the 39 chapters describe, for example, the problems facing all travellers in pre-railway days and point out that one of the very first women to explore difficult caves did so at Škocjan. Also touched upon is Darwin’s interest in Slovene cave animals and a lot more. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Kraške jame, pa tudi posebna in zanimiva slovenska pokrajina – kras – že stoletja privlačijo obiskovalce. A vendar je bilo v preteklih stoletjih le peščici dano občudovati najrazličnejše kraške formacije in prisluhniti bučečim podzemeljskim rekam. Kar nekaj obiskovalcev je izkušnje in opažanja zapisalo v dnevnike in jih v tiskani obliki celo objavilo. V knjigi, ki je plod dolgoletnega angleško-slovenskega sodelovanja (svetovno znanega preučevalca zgodovine speleologije in slovenske zgodovinarke), so povzeti njihova opažanja in vtisi, dopolnjeni z ilustracijami oziroma s fotografijami iz tistega časa. Dobo modernega turizma je začel Thomas Cook, ki je prve organizirane skupine v Postojnsko jamo pripeljal leta 1868. V tej jami že vrsto let prirejajo glasbene oziroma plesne prireditve. To je le en vidik odnosa med človekom in jamo, ki ga obravnava knjiga. V 39 poglavjih spoznamo na primer težave, s katerimi so se spoprijemali obiskovalci jam pred uvedbo železnice, izvemo, da je ena izmed pionirk – raziskovalk jam – raziskovala prav Škocjanske jame, da so živali, ki jih najdemo v slovenskih jamah, pritegnile pozornost samega Darwina in še veliko več.
