Geocache Description:

1911 rakennettu Hangon vesitorni räjäytettiin vuonna 1941 kun suomalaiset joukot valtasivat Hankoniemen takaisinvenäläisiltä. Nykyinen vesitorni rakennettiin vuonna 1942. Kirkko oli myös miinoitettu, mutta räjähteet eivät toimineet ja se säästyi. Nykyisen ulkonäkönsä kirkko sai 1970-luvulla.Hangon vesitornista on hienot näkymät koko Hankoniemelle. Lumi voi haitata kätkön löytymistä talvella.

The watertower of Hanko, built in 1911, was blown up by russian troops in 1941 when finnish army conquered Hanko. The current water tower was built up in 1942. The bombs in the church never exploded, so it was saved. During 1970's the church was repaired and got it current appearance.From the watertower, there is a great view over the cape of Hanko. Finding the cache should be possible during winter, but snow may cause problems.
