Cache itself is small plastic container added with strong magnet. It contains logbook, pencil, pencil-sharpener and some things and atributes of Latvian occupation period.
The Victory Memorial to Soviet Army in Riga was erected in 1985 to commemorate the Soviet Army's victory over Nazi Germany in World War II. It consists of a 79 meter tall obelisk and several two groups of sculptures, symbolizing Mother Russia and Red Army soldiers.
This is the Soviet "Victory Monument" (Technically correctly entitled "Ensemble to Soviet Army Soldiers - Liberators of Soviet Latvia and Riga from the German Fascist Invaders") in Riga, aka the Corpse's Finger, or the Pardaugava post. Situated in "Victory Park" on "Victory Boulevard" (hence its common name) opposite the old town across the River Daugava. Still standing, but given its historical and aesthetic "value", and the prime real estate it is on (worth tens of millions), that may not be too much longer.
Note: Please leave the cache EXACTLY at the same place and position as it was placed!
