The cache is a custom made container that caontain PET preform, with a logbook and pencil inside it.
Cache is located near a monument dedicated to the victims of the 1905 Revolution, fighters for Soviet order in Year 1919 and to Red army soldiers who were killed during WWII.

The monument is located on the hill which was formerly known as "Karatavu kalns" (Gallows hill). During Duchy of Courland times(from 1561 till 1795) on this hill witches and sorcerers used to be hanged and burned. Afterwards place was renamed to "Kapkalns" (Cemetery hill) because around the 18th century cemetry was established there.
