Geocache Description:

At the given coordinates you will find the beautyful Church of Betlehem built 1917. It has been a landmark for people passing e.g. by train, and in 66 years it was the only church in Grankulla/Kauniainen. Architect: Atte Willberg.

The cache was muggled twice in 2008 and placed in a new hide 15.6.2008. Then public work destroyed the hide in May 2010. New hide in November 2010. Present hide from 2014.
To get the cache:
1. How many wooden steps are there in the stairs at the west side of the church? Let their number be A.
2. At the north side of the church there is a notice-board with metallic letters as title uppermost (=heading, one word). Let the number of metallic letters in the title be B.
3. The last metallic letter in the title shows the cardinal direction. (E.g. N=North, S=South etc)

The distance from the church to the cache is 16*B + 12 meters.
The direction is the last metallic letter in the title minus (5*A - 4) degrees. (i.e. that amount of degrees anticlockwise from the cardinal direction showed by the last metallic letter.)

In the beginning the cache had some things related to Betlehem.
Put the camo so that the bottle isn't visible, please!
