Cache is placed in the bridge over Mazirbe river, close to nature path that leads from Mazirbe to Sikrags. The path is about 7 km long and goes along the narrow-gauge railway track. Information stands, pedestrian bridges over the small rivers and the path are made within the framework of Baltic Green Belt.
In Northern Kurzeme the locomotive which transported passengers and craft by 600 mm wide narrow-gauge railway trails since 1916 till 1963 was called “Mazbanitits”. It is the military heritage from World War I that made a substantial impact on everyday life of coastal fishermen villages – provided work places and link between settlements.
