Geocache Description:


[LAT] Dzelzceļa stacijas ūdenstorņiem Valmierieši savulaik devuši skanīgus vārdus – Ūdensgalva un Feinšmekers. Kādā avīzes “Valmierietis” rakstā vēstīts: “Kaut abiem Valmieras dzelzceļa stacijas ūdenstorņiem pēc pasēm krietna pussimts gadu starpība, tas vecākais zemākais joprojām ar savu romantiku priecē, kamēr augstākais, silikātbālākais, tāds pilnīgi nekāds”. Sešstūrainais sarkano ķieģeļu ūdenstornis būvēts 19.gs. beigās un tika lietots dzelzceļa ūdensapgādes vajadzībām.

Šis slēpnis ir arī daļa no tūrisma akcijas "Simtgades dārgumi", ko organizē Valmieras Tūrisma informācijas centrs sadarbībā ar Kocēnu, Burtnieku un Beverīnas novadiem. Vairāk info: visit.valmiera.lv

[ENG] For the water towers of the railways stations the Valmierians have once given meaningful names – Waterhead (Ūdensgalva) and Feinshmeker (Feinšmekers). In a newspaper article “Valmierietis” is reported: “Although the difference between the two water towers of Valmiera railway station after passports is a half-century, that senior lowest still pleases with its romance, while the tallest, silicate palest, is absolutely nothing”. Hexagonal red brick water tower was built at the end of the 19th century and was used for the needs of the railway water supply.

This cache is also part of tourism campaign “Centennial treasures”. More info: visit.valmiera.lv
