Lustuzis - Cave Rock in Ligatne, Latvia
Latvia

When you visit Ligatne, Lustuzis (or Cave Rock) is the first to welcome you. It is situated on the rights bank of Ligatne River and stretches for 250 m downstream, 50 m along the forest edge (marked upper edge of the slope) to South West and 50 m to South East. It is 4.454 ha wide. It is a geological and geomorphological natural monument.

Lustuzis is a favorite visitable natural site. More and more tourists visiting Ligatne wish to perpetuate themselves and their friends in pictures against the mighty cliff. Therefore a special sight platform was created on the foot of the cliff ensuring rich landscape and at the same time protecting the natural monument from human-induced cracking (sandstone rock is friable and walking on it is undesirable).

Its additional name the Cave rock characterizes the peculiarity of Lustuzis, because many caves and cellars were cut here, and this is the only place where cellars were cut even in two levels. Today several cellars still serve inhabitants and they store winter supplies there.

Apmeklējot Līgatni, pirmais viesus sveic Lustūzis. Tas novietojies Līgatnes upes labajā krastā un stiepjas 250 m pa straumi uz leju, 50 m gar meža malu (nogāzes izteikto augšmalu) uz dienvidrietumiem un 50 m uz dienvidaustrumiem. Platība 4,454 ha. Ģeoloģiskais un ģeomorfoloģiskais dabas piemineklis.

Lustūža apskate ir iecīnīts dabas objekts. Aizvien lielāks skaits tūristu, kas apmeklē Līgatni, vēlas iemūžināt sevi un draugus fotogrāfijās uz cēlās klints fona. Tāpēc klints priekšējā pakājē ir izveidota speciāla skatu platforma, kas nodrošina lielisku ainavu un tai pašā laikā pasargā dabas pieminekli no cilvēku radītās noārdīšanās (smilšakmens iezis ir trausls, tāpēc pa to nav vēlama pārvietošanās).

Papildus nosaukums Alu iezis raksturo Lustūža īpatnību, jo šeit savulaik izkalts liels daudzums alu un pagrabu, un šī ir vienīgā vieta, kur pagrabi kalti pat divos līmeņos. Šodien joprojām vairāki pagrabi kalpo iedzīvotājiem, kur uzsgabāt ziemas krājumus.

Лустузис (пещерная порода)

При посещении Лигатне, первым гостей встречает Лустузис. Он расположен на правом берегу реки Лигатне и тянется на протяжении 250 м вниз по течению, 50 м вдоль кромки леса (выраженного верхнего края склона) на юго-запад и 50 м на юго-восток. Ширина – 4,454 га. Геологический и геоморфологический памятник природы.

Лустузис является излюбленным природным объектом осмотра. Все большее количество посещающих Лигатне туристов желают увековечить себя и своих друзей в фотографиях на фоне величественной скалы. Поэтому у переднего подножья скалы создана специальная смотровая платформа, с которой открывается великолепный вид и в то же самое время она защищает памятник природы от создаваемых человеком разломов (порода песчаника очень хрупкая, поэтому движение по ее поверхности нежелательно).

Дополнительное название Пещерная порода характеризует особенность Лустузиса, так как здесь в свое время было вырублено большое количество пещер и погребов, и это единственное место, где пещеры вырубались в два уровня. И сегодня многие погреба до сих пор служат жителям и они хранят там запасы на зиму.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
