This cache commemorates the Battle of Saint Gotthard (Szentgotthárd) on August 1, 1664 between a Christian army led by Montecuccoli and an Ottoman army led by Köprülü. The battle took place in Western Hungary, near the Austrian-Hungarian border. The Turks were defeated and the subsequent Peace of Vasvár meant the end of the Turkish occupation of Hungary.
