Geomurmelit: Geocaching is not the same hobby as it used to be ten years ago. This is not fun anymore. I don't have any interest to maintain my caches, so this is the end for this cache. Thanks to all visitors.

Geocache Description:

[FIN] Helppo peruskätkö hyvällä näköalapaikalla.
[ENG] A easy basic cache with nice scenery.


Taivaskallio sijaitsee Käpylässä noin 5 km Helsingin keskustasta pohjoiseen. Noin 60 metrin korkuinen kukkula on yksi Helsingin korkeimmista luonnonmukaisista maastonkohdista. Kukkulan laelta on hyvät näköalat kaupunkimaiseman ihailuun. Kesäisin se on mukava piknik-paikka.

Toisen maailmansodan aikana 1939-1944 paikalla toimi raskas ilmatorjuntapatteri "Taivas". Muistona tuolta ajalta paikalta löytyy useita ilmatorjunta-asemien raunioita ja muistomerkiksi sinetöity 76-millinen Bofors ilmatorjuntatykki.

Tämä kätkö korvaa paikalla aiemmin olleen, nykyisin arkistoidun kätkön GC5261.

Julkisen liikenteen aikataulut ja reitit löytyvät HSL:n Reittioppaasta.


Taivaskallio ("Sky hill") is located 5 km to north from centre of Helsinki. The hill is one of the highest natural terrain points (height ca. 60 meters) in Helsinki with nice views over the city. In summers it is a comfortable place for a picnic.

During World War II (1939-1944) anti-aircraft artillery was located at top of the hill. Nowadays there is still several remains of artilleries and one sealed 76 mm Bofors anti-aircraft gun as memorials from past.

This cache replaces the archived cache GC5261 which was located nearby.
