English listing by Toniczech

Villa Bilek is maintained by Gallery of the Capital City (GHMP). Original interior fittings and Bilek's works are presented jn the permanent exposition located here. More details can be found on the web, for example at GHMP's page or Wikipedia. I recommend to read some of these pages, you could find there answers needed for solving of this cache.

  1. The villa has been named after its owner, Frantisek Bilek. What was his occupation?
    • theatre director (A = 1)
    • hippologist (A = 5)
    • sculptor and graphic designer (A = 9)
  2. The villa has an unusual shape which is derived from
    • Turkish crescent (B = 40)
    • scythe trace in a corn field (B = 25)
    • wooden cradle (B = 10)
  3. The villa in style of symbolism was built in 1911 on site of former
    • tram loop (C = 6)
    • city walls (C = 7)
    • cemetery of Hradcany (C = 8)
  4. The villa has been maintained by Gallery of the Capital City since?
    • 1959 (D = 11)
    • 1961 (D = 15)
    • 1963 (D = 19)

Our homework is over and now let's see the villa.

  • S1 - Start (N 50°05.701 E 014°24.493) The view from starting point used to be obscured by vegetation but has been somewhat cleared recently. On a column of the fence there is a small blue plaque with number. The plaque is partially rusty but one can still recognize the number which (divided by two) is E.
  • S2 - Main entrance (N 50°05.706 E 014°24.524) You are standing in front of the main entrance and can see stairs and a sculptural group. What does the kneeling man have at his left
    • child (F = 42)
    • dog (F = 64)
    • nothing (F = 86)
  • S3 - Windows (N 50°05.723 E 014°24.525) Number of windows next to the relief in upper part of the house, that's G.
  • S4 - Lamp (N 50°05.723 E 014°24.514) Cross the street towards the villa in order to read six-digit number of a street lamp. Divide this number into two triplets X and Y (X = first three digits, Y = last three digits).

And now hurry up for the final which is at following coordinates

N 50°05.[X+(A*C)+E-11]

E 014°24.[Y-(B+D+F)-G+27]

The cache is comfortably accessible, no need for crossing tram track just in the curve!!!
