Geocache Description:

[LV] Slēpnis neatrodas norādītajās koordinātās. Lai tās noskaidrotu Jums vispirms ir jāatrisina uzdevums.

[ENG] Cache is not at the given coordinates, to find them, first you need to solve the task.


[LV] Tā kā slēpnis nav veltīts pašam Mazās Ģildes namam, tad copy/paste informāciju likšu tikai angliski runājošajiem, lai tie iegūtu priekšstatu par namu. Šis slēpnis ir veltīts mazākai Mazās Ģildes versijai. Lai to atrastu, Jūsu uzdevums būs izlasīt nelielu stāstu.

Stāstu es pats izlasīju internetā, tāpēc tam noteikti var ticēt, jo viss ko var izlasīt internetā ir taisnība.

Stāsts sākas kādā nelielā pagrabtelpā, mājā, kas atrodas uz šībrīža Meistara ielas un Amatu ielas stūra. Šajā istabā bija kāds iemītnieks. Šis iemītnieks bija kungs, kas istabā nebija brīvprātīgi. Šajā istabā viņš mitinājās kā aizturētais.  Acīmredzot, šīs ēkas pagrabs agrāk ir kalpojis par cietumam līdzīgu iestādi. Informācija par to, kas šis kungs bija un kāpēc viņš bija aizturēts, nav būtiska. Lai vai kā, istaba nebija omulīga- četras sienas, kakts gulēšanai un kakts fzioloģisko vajadzību nokārtošanai. Vienā no sienām bija kāds dienas gaismas avots - neliels restots lodziņš. Pa šo logu kungam pavērās burvīgs skats. Kā Jūs noteikti variet jau uzminēt, tas bija Mazās Ģildes nams. Savas dienas pagrabā pavadot, viņa vienīgais izklaides avots bija pētīt nama fasādi un tās arhitektūru. Šis nams bija viņa vienīgā saikne ar ārpasauli un palīdzēja viņam šajās četrās sienās nesajukt prātā un nezaudēt cerību. Cik ilgi šis vīrs pavadījis šajā ieslodzījumā un, kā beidzot ticis ārā, nav zināms. Taču atkal kļūstot par brīvu cilvēku un uzsākot savu dzīvi no jauna viņš uzsāka savas sapņu mājas celtniecību... Tieši tā! - pēc Mazās Ģildes atveidojuma. Māja attiecīgi ir daudz mazāka un Sv. Jāņa Kristītāja skulptūras vietā uz savas mājas fasādes viņš atveidoja pats sevi ar rokām,kas ieslodzītas ķēdēs, šādi simbolizējot viņa pavadīto laiku ieslodzījumā.

Lai kā arī būtu ar šī stāsta patiesumu, šī māja eksistē. Pēc stāsta izlasīšanas, Jums ir jānoskaidro šīs mājas atrašanās vieta, un tālāk jau jāseko norādēm geočekerī. Lai Veicas!

 

[ENG]

At the given coordinates you can find Small Guild hall.

Riga Small Guild or the Guild of St. John (Die Kleine Gilde zu Riga, Sankt-Johannis-Gilde) was a fraternity of master craftsmen that existed from 1352 to 1936, when the Chamber of Crafts was founded.

The interior of the Small Guild is noteworthy and abundant. The hall, lobby and staircase floors are lined with terrazzo mosaics. All windows of the house have artistic colourful stained glass, specifically made and ordered from Hanover. Pointed tree fringes of the door and window boxes are embellished with painted instructive aphorisms and sayings in Gothic letters.

The Small Guild existed alongside the Great Guild Hall, or the St. Mary’s Guild (located right opposite the Small Guild), which joined together the Riga merchants, and later also writers.

Today, the Small Guild is used for festive events, business meetings, conferences, presentations, balls and concerts.

The old craftsmen house now operates as a cultural and folk art centre, which is inhabited by a variety of cultural organisations – children’s, youth and senior amateur groups, vocal ensembles, popular applied arts and fine arts studios, amateur theatres, instrumental bands and a folklore group.

You won't be able to find cache at the Small Guild hall, it will be at a smaller version of one. First, You need to read a story. I found this story on the internet, so it must be true, because everything found in internet is true.

The story begins in a small basement room in a home that originates on the corner of Meistara and Amatu streets. In this room, there was an inmate. He was inprisionded by some unknown cause. Obviously, the basement of this house was formerly a prison of some kind. The fact who was this man or why was he inprisioned, is not important. Anyway, the room was not comfy, only four walls with a corner to sleep in and a corner for physiological needs. But there was one source of daylight. A small barred window. And through this window he could see something very beautiful. You probably can already guess - the Small Guild hall. This view was his only connection to the outside world. So, he spent the days looking at the Guild and studied its' architecture every day. It was the only thing that kept his mind busy. How long was he in there and how did he get out is unknown. But when he finally was free again and begun his new life, he knew exactly what kind of home he wanted to build for himself.. Yes!, an exact replica of Small Guild hall- a bit smaller and in the place of St. Johns' sculpture he built a silouette of himfelf in chains, symbolising his time in solitude.

It doesn't even matter if this story is true or not, because the fact is - this home trully exist, and your next task is to find it. After that, just follow the instructions in geocheker. English speakers will deffinitely have more troubles finding the answer to this task, so if you are out of ideas, and want to find this cache, contact me for some hints. Good luck!
