Geocache Description:

Spilves lidosta (Spilve airport, also given as Rigas Centrala Lidosta - Riga Central airport)

Airport is a former civilian and military airport in Latvia located 5 km north of the Riga city centre, from which aircraft took off as soon as the First World War. It became the first international airport of Riga in the 1930s, which, from 1937, linked the capital city with Helsinki via Tallinn, Warsaw via Vilnius, Berlin and Moscow via Kaunas. After World War II and the Soviet occupation, it has been rebuilt into a 1950s-era airport, the hub of Aeroflot. A new ring taxiway and refreshed surface were added.
The airfield was closed for regular flights in the late 1980s. The terminal building still remains as a notable example of Stalin's neoclassical architecture.

At night the airport is guarded, so be careful.

Hide cach back well, the same as it is placed now.
