Geocache Description:

Patkuli trepp on trepp Tallinna kesklinnas, Toompea kõrgendiku põhjapoolsel küljel.


[EST]

Patkuli trepp algab Nunne tänava kõrval asuva Šnelli tiiki ümbritseva Toompargi Toompea põhjaküljelt ning tõuseb mööda mäenõlva Toompeal Rahukohtu tänav 3 ja 5 hoonete vahelisel alal asuvale Patkuli vaateplatvormile.

Trepp ehitati 1903. aastal ja avati 6. oktoobril 1903. aastal. Trepil on 157 astet. Trepp lõppes üleval väravaga, mis oli sajandi alguses avatud kella kaheksast viieni ning mille lahtiolekut tähistas heisatud lipp, et linnakodanikud asjatult üles ei roniks, kui värav on suletud.

Patkuli trepp nimetati Dietrich Friedrich von Patkuli auks (Põhjasõja ajal oli ta 1707–1710 Tallinna asekuberner ja 1709. aastast Eestimaa kindralkuberneri Nils Strombergi kohusetäitjana Eestimaa asekuberner).
