The cache is dedicated to Riga railway station Vagonu parks (railway yard) and the most remarkable structures nearby - Matisa water towers. Matisa street's water towers are the oldest water towers in Riga. They are built in 1897. and 1898., project by O.Intce. The height of Matisa water towers is 47 meters above sea level and volume of each tower's reservoir is 1600 cubic metres. One of the water towers caught fire in early nineties, but is renewed now.
Nearby lies Rigas centralcietums (the central prison of Riga) and Matisa kapi (the cemetery of Matiss). The Central prison of Riga is one of the oldest prisons in Latvia. It was made by merging the prison of Matiss and the Central prison. The cemetry of Matiss is opened from 1871 and those days there were buried disabled persons and poor people.

The cache container is on a pedestrian's bridge.
The cache is not in the restricted area!!! Do not try to get there!!!
