Geocache Description:

[ENG] The cache is in plastic box with a logbook, pen, pencil and small items for trading.


[ENG] The Cache is located in Garbary Forest near by Ludza town boundaries. Ludza is a typical Latgale small town in the east of the region, 248 km from Riga. It is located at a beautiful, hilly site encircled by five lakes (Mazais Ludza Lake, Lielais Ludza Lake, Dunakla Lake, Zvirgzdenes Lake And Runtortas Lake), and preserves memories of ancient, glorious times when significant Latgalian settlements stood here and a lively trading road wound its way through the Latgale Highland. Through the centuries Ludza has been ruled by Germans, Poles, Russians and Belorussians, so its name has at various times been recorded as Ludsen, Ludzen, Lutsen, Lucin and Lucin. Today`s `Ludza` was bestowed during Latvian independence in 1920. About Ludza.

[LAT] Memoriālais ansamblis nacionālas pretošanas kustības dalībniekiem atklāts 1997.gada 15.novembrī Garbaros pie Ludzas – Rēzeknes šosejas. Memoriāla autors mākslinieks Antons Kūkojs. Piemiņas vietā uzstādīts 11 metrus augsts metāla krusts un 18 tonnu smags laukakmens, kurā iegravēts zobens un egle, pie akmens novietota melna granīta plāksne ar iekaltiem vārdiem:

Mūžīgā piemiņa
Par Latvijas neatkarību
Kritušajiem Ludzas apriņķa
Nacionālajiem partizāniem!
Viņi mira, lai dzīvotu,
Lai brīvības karogs
Pāri Latvijai plīvotu!

80 metrus attalajā apbedījumu vietā, kurp ved kastaņkoku aleja, ierakti 10 simboliski balti koka krusti . Tas ir ne tikai piemineklis Krivandas operācijā kritušajiem nacionālajiem partizāniem, bet visiem apriņķa pretošanās kustības dalībniekiem, kuru kapa vieta nav zināma.
