This cache is located in the area of the former Celtic hillfort area above the Stradonice village by Nizbor - upon the scenic lookout hill. I recommend to start from Stradonice graveyard following the educational path up to the cross and further.

The most famous Celtic oppidum in Bohemia has been built on a slatey hill "Hradiste" (The Hillfort) at a height of 380 m. The Celts have founded their fortified settlement in this palce sometime after half of the 2nd century - originally with no fortification. The eldest building stage comes from around 120 BC. The later fortification protected 90,3 ha area during it´s expansion and life cycle. The first reference of the oppidum comes from 1845, but the oppidum has been mostly known after approximately 200 golden coins had been accidentally discovered in August 2nd 1877.
