Geocache Description:

THE ABOVE CO-ORDINATES ARE RANDOM.

A cache at the side of a road with parking for a couple of vehicles.

You will find the co-ordinates by carrying out a search of Prague from your armchair.

Visit the linked page (FOUND TOWARDS TOP OF THIS PAGE) and find the below described items on the 360 degree photograph. You can zoom in and out and also open up a map from the web-site.
You may need to translate some of the words, and also be quite patient.

You will have to answer the following questions to find numbers, these will then lead you to the correct co-ordinates.

1. Find two large buildings, one has 'Allianz' and the other 'Hilton' on the top. There is a large building in front of them with a bank of extractor fans at the top of it. Total the number of extractor fans and then divide this two digit number by 4.
The answer is A.

2. How many glass domes can you see on top of the 'Dorint' building.
The answer is B.

3. Find a football pitch where you can see some players, three of the outfield players have numbers on their backs. Add these three numbers up, and then minus 26.
The answer is C.

The answer is F.

7. Find 3 containers stacked one on top of another, they are coloured Orange, Red and Purple. The top container has 'Hapag Lloyd' printed on it. How many letters are in the word on the middle container.
The answer is G.

The answer is M.

13. There is an advert for a popular drink on a hoarding outside the 'Generali Arena'. How many footballs are on the sign.
