Geocache Description:

Kätkö tutustuttaa sinut entisen linnan kasarmin ja tykistömuseon alueeseen. Koordinaatit johdattavat sinut portille.
You will see Castle Barracks of Häme and also Museum of Artilliery. The coordinates lead you to the gate.

Vuonna 1639 kauppapaikaksi perustettu kaupunki sijaitsi alun perin linnan pohjoispuolella, nykyisten Linnankasarmien alueella. Linnankasarmien alueen puistomainen eteläosa oli sotilaskäytössä jo ainakin 1700-luvulla. Merkittävä kaupunkikasarmialue on palvellut sekä venäläistä että suomalaista varuskuntaa. Linnankasarmien historiallinen rakennuskanta on suojeltu valtion omistamien rakennusten suojelusta annetulla asetuksella. Lisätietoa Linnankasarmista..

The town of Hämeenlinna, at first founded as a trading place in 1639, was originally situated north of the castle, in the area of the present castle barracks. It was no later than the 18th century, possibly even earlier, that the parklike southern parts of the castle barracks area were used for military purposes. The barracks area has played a significant role as a place for first a Russian and then a Finnish garrison. The historical building complex has been protected by the statute regulating the protection of state-owned buildings. For more information.
