The cache is located at Meza street, close to the junction of Tirgus, Meza and Setas streets where the Orthodox church and nice architecture of other buildings can be seen.
The cache is close to the student house of Riga Technical University (RTU). Be careful as usually there are many students around! In this area there are some of RTU buildings as well as Riga International School of Economics and Business Administration with its nice and freshly renovated building.
The architecture here represents one of the most interesting samples of Riga's Gothic style.
The Holy Trinity Orthodox church was built as it is now in 1895 and since then only the painting has changed. The cupolas of the church represent the features of Moscow's 17th century architecture.
