Searching for the Cache

Before you can grab the cache itself. you have to visit two locations on the square. You will find the N and E coordinates of the cache on these locations on little tablets, placed on metal objects. Once you have the final coordinates, you can go for the cache itself, but please be very cautious when logging and hiding back the cache. A coin, a screwdriver or other similar flat and thin tool is required to reach the cache. The hiding cover looks dangerous, but it is harmless and was entirely placed by us. Look for the GC! sign to be sure. Never ever touch these kind of things elsewhere! Please ensure that you closed all 4 parts precisely after you finished. Also avoid uploading any photos of the hiding spot and the close surroundings of the cache. You do not have to go to private propriety or cross any fences, everything is reachable from the public area.

Bring a pen with you, because the cache is too small for it.

 

About the Area

The Kálvária Square is a popular park of Szeged, which constantly develops.

The most beautiful building at the square is the building of Déri Miksa Industrial Technical College. It was built in 1914, but in the first years it had to be used as military hospital. After the first world war the building belonged to the university. Even the Nobel-prized scientist, Albert Szent-Györgyi worked here and he first managed to extract vitamin C from pepper here.

A chapel used to stand in the square from 1790 to 1968 on a small hill, with a raw of statues leading to it. (Nowadays these statues can be seen in the yard of the nearby church.) The chapel was damaged in the second world war and afterwards it wasn’t repaired, but even the whole building was razed to the ground. A petrol station was later built at the same place, but it was closed in 2004. The small hill was rebuilt and in September 2011 a cross was stood on the top of it, commemorating the ruined chapel.

The church at the square was built in 1933. As this was the period of blooming neobaroque style, the modern austere style of the catholic church was very daring and uncommon. Its relic is a part from the cross of Jesus.

A triangulation point can also be found on the square. During the rebuilding of Szeged after the 1879 great flood many triangulation points were used for designing but only few are left.

A popular playground is also located on the square.

The square is usually crowded, so be aware of your surroundings while searching for the cache.
