Geocache Description:

Ruins of the Bishops' Castle in Kuusisto. Kuusiston piispanlinnan rauniot.

Kuusisto Castle Ruins are located in Kaarina near Turku.
The castle was built in 1317 for Bishops. It didn't have much of luck during its history, as it was destroyed already the next year by Russians. Then it was restored, but got destroyed again by fire in 1485. By the order of King Gustavus Vasa of Sweden the castle was finally destroyed in 1528, because it was a very important base of the Catholic Bishops who had a strong power in those times.

There are arrows "Kuusiston linnanrauniot" to the ruins from the passing main roads.

The container is a small canister. PLEASE be sure that you log the right cache, there is some kind of children's playcache around.

Kuusiston linnanrauniot sijaitsevat Kaarinassa, lähellä Turkua.
Linna rakennettiin piispoille 1317. Linnalla oli aika lailla huonoa onnea historiansa aikana: venäläiset tuhosivat sen jo seuraavana vuonna. Se rakennettiin uudelleen, mutta seuraavaksi tuli tuhosi sen 1485. Lopullisesti se tuhottiin Kustaa Vaasan käskystä 1528, koska se oli mahtavien katolisten piispojen tukikohta.

Läheisiltä pääteiltä on opastus linnanraunioille.

Kätkö on pieni purkki. HUOM! Lähellä on ilmeisesti myös lasten tekemä "jemma", katsokaa että löytämänne purkki on vihjeen mukainen.

Tämä kätkö on löydettävissä myös lumisena aikana. This cache is snowproof.
