Geocache Description:

Slēpnis atrodas netālu no Rakstnieku nama. Tas ir ēdiena kārbiņa izmērā starp small un regular.

The cache is located near The house of writers. It is a food box of size between small and regular.

Projekta «Rakstnieku nams» vietā, kur tiek pārdoti dzīvokļi par vairāk nekā 1500 eiro kvadrātmetrā, agrāk bijusi pavisam pieticīga ēka — pirmās brīvvalsts laikā tur bija Rīgas Latviešu labdarības biedrības bērnu kolonija, vēlāk pamatskola. Tagad ēka apšūta ar koku, tās fasāde piesātināta ar barokālām koka detaļām, tāpēc atgādina restaurētu muižu. Nosaukumu «Rakstnieku nams» projekts ieguvis, iespējams, pateicoties Garkalnes saistībai ar Jaunsudrabiņu. 


Instead of project «House of Writers" where apartments are sold for more than 1,500 euros per square meter there was quite modest building in the past - during the interwar period there was Riga Latvian charity society children's colony, later elementary school. Now the building is clad with timber, its facade saturated with Baroque wooden parts, and looks like reminiscent restored manor. The reason for name "House of Writers" is unknown, however it might have gained it due to Garkalne's relation to famous Latvian writer Jaunsudrabins.
