Geocache Description:


Tulipesäkkeet ovat osa Helsingin seutua ympäröivää puolustusjärjestelmää, jota rakennettiin ensimmäisen maailmansodan aikana.

Tulipesäkkeet kaivettiin maahan tai louhittiin kallioon. Niitä on useita tyyppejä eri puolilla pääkaupunkiseutua, ja ne vaihtelevat kooltaan ja muodoltaan. Osa pesäkkeistä oli katettuja, osa avoimia. Aseistuksena oli konekivääri tai kivääri.

Talvella runsas lumi vaikeuttaa kätkön löytymistä.

The gun positions are part of Helsinki area fortification system which was constructed during First World War.

The gun positions were dug into the ground or quarried out of the rock. There are a number of types of positions in capital region, varying in size and shape. Some of them are covered, and some are open. The weaponry used in them was a machine gun or rifle.

During winter thick snow causes problems with finding this cache.
