Geocache Description:

[LAT] Murjāņu kamaniņu trase. Unikāls vēstures objekts. Lai sasniegtu slēpni, jums, visticamāk, būs jāšķērso Lojas upe pa privātu tiltiņu un jānoiet gar trasi pilnā garumā. NESTAIGĀJIET, lūdzu, pa pašu trasi.

[ENG] Murjani Luge Track. Unique historic monument. To reach the cache you most probably have to cross Loja river by Private bridge ant then walk luge track in full length. Please DO NOT walk by the track.

[LAT]
Murjāņu kamaniņu trase celta 1978. gadā. Trase tika izveidota, pateicoties Rolanda Upatnieka iniciatīvai, kurš pats bija slavens kamaniņu braucējs, dēvēts arī par Latvijas bobsleja tēvu. Pēdējās sacensības te notika 1987. gadā. Pēc jaunas trases uzbūvēšanas Siguldā viss pārcēlās uz turieni. Pa trasi brauca arī ar vasaras ragavām.

Lai sasniegtu slēpni, jums, visticamāk, būs jāšķērso Lojas upe pa privātu tiltiņu un jānoiet gar trasi pilnā garumā.
NESTAIGĀJIET, lūdzu, pa trasi. Koka detaļas ir sapuvušas un lūzt pie katra soļa! Cienīsim mūsu kultūras mantojumu!

[ENG]
Murjani Luge Track was built near to Sport School Murjani in 1978. Luge sport has long history in Latvia and our sportsman have got medals in European and World championships and also in Olympic Games. For many years this probably was the place where they had their first sledging. Since new track was built in Sigulda, this one is completely unattended and used sometimes only for dirtsurfing.

To reach the cache you most probably have to cross Loja river by Private bridge ant then walk luge track in full length.
Please DO NOT walk by the track. Wooden details are old and can be easily broken. Respect our cultural heritage!
