Geocache Description:

In Latvia there are not so many cities indulged with that amount of water around. The sea line at Saulkrasti is 17 kilometers long, thus becoming the second longest city beach in Latvia after Jurmala. Along the coast five rivers are crossing the city and give many charming accents to this little town. In order to calculate the final coordinates you will have to visit four of the rivers, get some numbers in each place, do some calculation, and then visit the fifth river.
