In the English language is the expression "riparian". This is the latynizm derived from the words "ripa" meaning "rim, Quay of the River, used when you want to determine the space in which all the components are dominated by the przepływającą next to the River.
From Wiłkowa to Izmaiłu by Kiliję – along the North arm of the Danube Delta with same name – was going to bicycle in the summer 2010 y., pamiętnego due to the massive floods that hit the Central and Eastern Europe –. Danube carried the huge mass of golden brown – Yellow, spienionej water, wylewając edges, sinking two British battlecruisers łachy, ostrowy, meadows and łęgi. Czuło continuously its power. River szemrała, bulgotała, syczała. Emanowała a specific scent of wet mud and vegetation zbutwiałej.
Ten kilometres before Izmaiłem showed up on the horizon, old Nekrasiwka, the village is like any in these pages – full of charm, with stocks of horses and cattle on pasture, the hens, gęśmi and goats in pens, with the baniastym kokosznikiem rural churches. However, contrary to popular belief, Stara Nekrasiwka is not a naddunajską village. Among the many local siół highlights it specific status is the presence on the list of UNESCO World Heritage.
Tak zwany „Południk Struvego” był łańcuchem ok. 260 punktów triangulacyjnych wyznaczonych na przestrzeni ok.2820 km. from the town of Hammerfest in Norway to the old Niekrasiwki on the territory of today's Ukraine. The name was derived from the name of Frederick George projects Wilhelm Von Struve was a well-known astronomer, coming from a family of Baltic Germans merited recompense for Russia(It is worth the title of dygresji add, that his grandson was Pyotr Struve, leader of the "cadets" and one of the greatest of the parliamentarians of Russia przedrewolucyjnej), which prepared the, and then oversaw the implementation of this ambitious project. Its purpose was more skartowanie areas of Norway, Sweden and Russia and to obtain more precise data about the shape and size of the Earth.
The project was completed in the years 1816 – 1852. You can add a title and criticism, that the "Meridian" progressed through three countries, While Norway and Sweden were joined in personal Union during this period. At the moment, "Meridian" crosses the territories of ten State organisms. Well, sit transit gloria mundi!
Wyróżnione punkty triangulacyjne przez UNESCO
In 2005 year 34 triangulacyjne points that were typed on the downstream "Meridian", a UNESCO World Heritage site and highlighted them obeliskami or arrays memorialnymi. On the territory of Ukraine is located four such points, however, the old Niekrasiwce a main share of honor special, Since this was the last link in the chain performing "Meridian Geodetic Arc". Consequently, it was awarded with a commemorative plaque by the Obelisk of a stately in j. Russian and Latin. I cannot determine this with certainty but is most likely, that array memorialna reproduces the prior, located in the old Niekrasiwce even in times of carskich.
