DON'T FORGET TO VIEW AND WRITE DOWN THE NUMBER INSIDE THE BOX COVER! (VALUE:F)

Cache is a small lock'lock container. Original contents: logbook, pencil, sharpener, some stuff for trading.

The Mezmuiza Castle, the present Augstkalne Secondary School, is situated on the shallow bank of the milllake. The castle was built at the end of the 19 th century by the Prince Liven and later managed by the baron Haan, from one side it is enclosed by the old park and from the other side – by the church built in Ketler’s time and by the high trees from the graveyard. The palace is built in Neogothic style and is an architectural and cultural monument of local meaning. Today the castle sends out a strange flawor of romantic tiredness. The gym-hall of the school and the boarding school are built on the foundation of the castle stable. The stone church with a tower was confirmed in 1648. The church is a cultural monument of national significance.
