Geocache Description:


[LV] Mans trešās klases lielais pārgājiens! 😎

Šodien Zviedru cepure lielākoties asociējas ar rodeļu trasi vasarā un slēpošanas iespējām ziemā. Taču īstenībā Zviedru cepure jeb Piltiņkalns ir stāvs uzkalniņš Abavas ielejas nogāzē, kas ir 17.gs. zviedru kareivju uzbērts ar cepurēm, lai apglabātu savu ģenerāli un viņa sievu. Cita leģenda vēsta, ka te apglabāti 200 zviedru kareivji ar visiem zirgiem, ģenerāli un viņa sievu. Vēl citā leģendā racēji bija krievu karavīri, kas te veidoja aizsardzības vai uzbrukuma pozīcijas, lai apšaudītu Sabili. Kā bija īstenībā - to varbūt zina vien senie koki, kas aug uz "cepures". Dodies un noskaidro!

Piekļūt var gan ar kājām vai velosipēdu pa iekoptu pastaigu taku no Sabiles (ar auto pa Kr.Barona ielu, cik nu tālu šoferis un vāģis vienojas), gan no rodeļu trases stāvlaukuma. Otrā versija ir daudz tuvāka, bet ārpus darba laika es tur sajutos nelāgi, lai gan teorētiski piekļuve dabas un vēstures objektam ir atļauta bez ierobežojumiem.

Slēpnis ir pavisam vienkārša PET pudeles sagatave. Cerams, ka iepriekšējais atradējs to ir labi nomaskējis!

Izbaudiet Abavas ieleju!

 

[ENG] Route of the school hike at the 3rd grade many years ago! 😎

Nowadays, the Swedish Cap is mostly known for the rodel track in summer and skiing opportunities in winter. But actually the Swedish Cap (alternative name - Piltiņkalns) is cult place - hill that was shovelled by Swedish soldiers using their hats in 17th century to bury their general and his wife. Another legend says that, after fights, 200 soldiers were burried here with their horses, general and his wife. Different legend tells that the hill was shovelled by Russian soldiers with military purposes - for protection or for shooting guns to Sabile. What's the true story - you may ask those old trees on top of "the cap"!

You can access it from Sabile via hiking path (car access on Barona Street as long as you can drive) or via parking lot of rodel track. The latter is much closer, but out of working hours it felt rather uncomfortable to be on the premises. However, the Swedish Cap is public historical object with free and unrestricted access.

The cache itself is a simple PET preform. Hopefully, well hidden by previous cachers!

Happy geocaching, and enjoy Abava Valley!
