Geocache Description:

Quite a simple mystery cache for the heroes among us.

As you see, this is a mystery cache. Thus on the given coordinates you won't find a thing (at least - not the container for this cache, maybe somebody has put another cache there, I seriously have no idea). The real coordinates for THIS cache are 56° __.___ E 023° __.___.
To solve the mystery and to understand the story behind this cache (which I can't tell you, or I would spoil the mystery), you are recommended to watch the 1987 Latvian animated film Brunurupuci" (Tortoises) directed by Ansis Berzins. After you have watched the film - take a look at the photo provided below, maybe you can see the coordinates in it (they are written on the picture).
A bit more about the cache - it salutes the Latvian tradition of extreme road crossing and nighty walks on the highway.
The cache location has a very strong connection with this tradition.
P.S. No geochecker is given: you will either see the coordinates or you wont. You can also try to look for a "magic-eye" 3D effect in the picture but I'm afraid that it is not there. Still - if it helps you to find the cache or if you just like staring at pictures - you're welcome to do it.
Here's the picture:
