Geocache Description:

This cache will take you around one of the parts of Riga that is rarely visited not only by tourists, but even by the locals despite the fact that there is lots to see there.


Agenskalns was one of the first districts of Riga that was mostly populated by Latvians. Nowadays still many traces remain of the old Hagensberg village - with its narrow unpaved streets and wooden houses. You can almost feel transported back in time when wandering there.

To find this cache, you must download the whereigo cartridge and go to the start coordinates. All additional information will be provided in the cartridge. Please notice that this geocache doesn't really use much of the whereigo features - in essence it is a typical multicache, just with the distinction that here you won't need to note down all numbers and you won't be able to proceed until you've answered the question correctly (thus - no banging your head against the wall when mistake in one of the first stages has given you a wrong final location).

It is recommended that you search for this cache either on foot or on bicycle - to get a better feeling of the places you visit. The total track distance is just a few kilometers.

Download Cartridge

In order to complete a wherigo cache you need at least one of the following devices:

  • A Garmin Oregon or Colorado (software built into device).
  • An Android phone (you need an app called "Whereyougo").
  • An iPhone (you need an app called "Whereigo", formerly known as Pigo).
  • A PDA (download the software here).

If you have any troubles with the cartridge - please report it to cache authors either by e-mail or by calling +371-.........................5

Special notice: The zones of each location are each 5-10 meters long in each direction. Because the streets are narrow and buildings distort the GPS signal, if we made them even bigger, you would sometimes be able to enter the zone on the wrong street.
