Geocache Description:


[LV] Slēpņa konteiners ir fotofilmiņas izmērā, tajā viesu grāmata, rakstāmais jāņem pašam. Apskates vērtas ir pilsdrupas no skatu laukuma, bet slēpnis atrodas mazliet tālāk, ejot pa ceļu.

Aizkraukles viduslaiku ordeņpils drupas atrodas Aizkraukles pagastā Daugavas krastā pie Kariekstes ietekas. Pils celta 1224.g. lielā steigā kā aizsargs pret leišu sirotājiem. 1226.g. to ieņēma Viesturs, bet nespēja tur ilgai noturēties. 1559.g. Aizkraukle tiek ieķīlāta poļiem, 1577.g. to ieņem krievi. Līdz 1633.g. pils vēl bija vesela, bet jau 1680.g. no tās palikušas tikai drupas. Līdz mūsdienām saglabājusies tikai viena siena un pamati.

[EN] The cache container is photo film size, it contains the guestbook, you must bring own pencil. The view to the ruins is great from the viewing area, but the cache is a little farther away along the road.

Aizkraukles Medieval castle ruins are located on the coast of Daugava at Aizkraukles Parish on the river of Kariekste. The castle was built in 1224 in great hurry as a protector against the Lithuanian Raiders. At 1226. castle was ranked  by Viesturs, but he could not hold long. In 1559, Aizkraukle is pledged to Poles, 1577 is taken by Russians. By the 1633, the castle was still undamaged, but in 1680, there remained only ruins. Until today only one wall and foundations have survived.
