Geocache Description:

ENG: At the given coordinates you will not find the cache.
LAT: Dotajaas koordinaatees Juus sleepni neatradiisiet.

ENG: Once here stood Victory Column of Riga, which was opened on 15th of September 1817 in memory of Riga inhabitants fearlessness and as proof of them heroism by defending Riga during war in 1812. Red Finnish granite monument was 14.8m high – it consisted of three-tiered podiums, monolithic columns and the chapter, which was as a base for ball, holding a bronze winged goddess Victory with Laurel crown in one hand and in other hand - palm branches as freedom symbol. Podium corners were decorated with eagle figures and the sides were holding bronze State and Riga emblems, as well as memorial inscriptions in Latin and Russian languages. Russian language text in translation was as follows:

"Forces of twenty states and people with swords and fire invaded Russia and were killed and taken as prisoners. They crushed the carrier of misery, bursted Europes bonds. Alexander the 1st as winner gave back to the governor the countries, freedom to nations.1814."

Hundred years after the monument base was consecrated started 1st World War, and soon Germans again threatened Riga. On July 1915 from Riga were evacuated factory equipment and all types of non-ferrous metals. All monuments were removed, among them “Victory goddess” and all its bronze parts, including the letters. The newspaper "Rigas News" on 1st of August announced that "the Victory Monument in front of Castle yesterday (30th July) was removed and packed for sending to inner parts of Russia. Unfortunately it is not known whether it was sent by rail or, like Peter I monument - by sea. In 1920th many of monuments were reevacuated, among them was not monument of Victory goddess. Its fate so far is unknown.
In autumn 1938 granite monument parts were removed from Pilslaukums (Palace square). They were taken to Viesturdarzs (Viestura garden), where they were lieing up to 1986, and than moved to new location - Improvement company stores on Varonu Street.

To find the final cache location, You have to find a place, where at the beginning of century was taken attached picture of Victory column.Facing 0 point of coordinates answer the following questions:

1. How many floors has building to the left from you (value A) and what is number of building address? (value B)

2. What is the number of building address right from you (value C)

3. How many stationary benches (value D) and posters stands (value E) you can see in close locality

4. How many sculptures are behind You on the floor (value F)

The final coordinates You can get placing the values in these simple equations:

N 56 GH. ABI

024 E FJ. CKL

G = D + E

H = A + C + E

I = B * 3

Q = B + D + E-F

K = B-E

L = B * 2

Attention! Cache location is quite far from the published coordinates. To get there You will have to make a small ride.
Good luck!

I hope that you can make it quite simply, as well as hope for your understanding – please do not add to many hints about final location in Your logs.And do not add photos, please!

LAT: Šeit kaadreiz Riigaa atradaas Uzvaras kolonna, kuru atklaaja 1817.gada 15.septembrii, pieminot Riigas iedziivotaaju drošsirdiibu un riidziniekiem veltiito monarha Aleksandra I apliecinaajumu par vinju 1812.gada kara laikaa izraadiito varoniibu, aizstaavot Riigu.

Sarkanajaa Somijas graniitaa veidotais piemineklis, kura kopeejais augstums bija 14.8m, sastaaveeja no triispakaapju postamenta, monoliitas kolonnas un kapitelja, kas balstiija lodi, uz kuras staaveeja spaarnotaa bronzas Uzvaras dieviete, turot paceltajaa labajaa rokaa lauru Slavas vainagu, bet kreisajaa – palmas zaru, Briiviibas simbolu. Postamenta stuurus, rotaaja eerglju figuuras, kas tureeja viitnes, bet postamenta saanos bija piestiprinaati bronzaa darinaati valsts un Riigas gjerbonji, kaa arii memoriaalie uzraksti latiinju un krievu valodaas. Krievu valodas teksts tulkojumaa skaneeja šaadi:

„Divdesmit valstu un tautu speeki ar zobenu un uguni iebruka Krievijaa un krita naavee un guustaa, Krievija, satriecot posta neseeju, saraava Eiropas važas. ALEKSANDRS PIRMAIS ar uzvareetaaja roku atdeva atpakalj valdniekam valstis, tautaam briiviibu. 1814.g.”

Simts gadus peec piemineklja pamatu iesveetiišanas saakaas I. Pasaules karš, un driiz vien pruuši atkal apdraudeeja Riigu. 1915. gada juulija otrajaa pusee Riigaa notiek fabriku iekaartu un visu veidu kraasaino metaalu evakuaacija. Tiek nonjemti visi metaala piemineklji, arii „Uzvaras dieviete” un visas paareejaas piemineklja bronzas daljas, ieskaitot arii burtus. Laikraksts „Riigas Zinjas” 1. augustaa pazinjoja, ka „Uzvaras piemineklis Pils priekšaa aizvakar (t.i. 30. juulijaa) tika nonjemts un iepakots aizsuutiišanai uz Iekškrieviju”. Diemžel nav zinaams, vai to nosuutiija pa dzelzcelju vai taapat kaa Peetera I pieminekli – pa juuras celju. 20. gados reevakueeto Riigas piemineklju skaitaa Uzvaras dievietes nebija, un par taas likteni liidz šim nekas nav zinaams.
1938. gada rudenii no Pilslaukuma novaaca arii piemineklja graniita daljas, kuras aizveda uz Viestura daarzu, kur taas saguleja seetmalee liidz pat 1986. gadam, kad tika paarvietotas jaunaa vieta – Labiekartošanas kombinaata noliktavaas Varonju ielaa.

Lai atrastu sleepni Jums vispirms buus jaatrod vieta no kurienes 19. gadsimta saakuma uznjemta atteelaa redzamaa fotograafija ar Uzvaras kolonnu, nostaajoties uz taas vietas ar seju pret koordinaašu 0 punktu jaatbild uz sekojošiem jautaajumiem:

1. Cik staavu ir celtnei, kura atrodas pa kreisi no jums (veertiba A), kaads ir šiis celtnes adreses numurs (veertiba B)
2. Kaads ir celtnes adreses numurs (veertiba C), kura atrodas pa labi no Jums
3. Cik stacionaaru solinju (veertiba D) un afishu stabus (veertiba E) jus redzat tiešaa tuvumaa
4. Cik skulptuuru (veertiba F) ir uz zemes Jums aiz muguras

Gala koordinaates ieguusiet, ja pareizi ievietosiet ieguutaas veertibas šajos vienkaaršajos vienaadojumos:

N 56 GH. ABI
E 024 FJ. CKL

G=D+E
H=A+C+E
I=B*3
J=B+D+E-F
K=B-E
L=B*2

Uzmaniibu! Slepnis atrodas sameera pataalu no publiceetajaam koordinatem, lai to atrastu naaksies nedaudz pavizinaaties.

Veelu veiksmi!

Ceru, ka Jums tas izdosies diezgan vienkaarši, taapat ceru arii uz Juusu sapratni – paraak neizpluustiet staastijumaa par sleepnja gala vietu. Kaa arii neievietojiet pie sava loga nekaadas fotograafijas.
