Found it Gavriel found World Heritage (Locked)

N 48° 28.340 E 020° 29.687

I will log the caves of the Aggelek Karst (Hungary) and the Slovak Karst (Slovakia). This World Heritage consists of several objects in Hungary and Slovakia. In fact all caves in the area have been put under protection. We visited Baradla-bg (several kilometers long), Beke-bg, Földvar-bg, Rakoczi-bg, Vass-Imre-bg and Kossuth-bg in Hungary and Domica, Gombasek and Ochtina in Slovakia. Some of the above mentioned caves are show-caves, the others can only be visited with a guide.
The above coordinates refer to the Aggtelek-Entrance of the Baradla-Cave. The Picture shows my GPS (very tiny, as I wanted to get the name of the site readable) on top of the memorial stone outside the cave. The memorial-plate on the northern entrance in Josvafö is not as decorative. Most of the Plates are to be found inside the caves, so the GPS isn't of much use there.

infoLocationless Caches could be considered the opposite of a Traditional Cache. Instead of finding a hidden container, you are given a task to locate a specific object and log its coordinates. A scavenger hunt of sorts, it involves collecting waypoints of various objects around the world.

Locationless caches have evolved into Waymarking. Waymark categories are similar to how locationless caches were listed on geocaching.com, but you can now search for the locations in each category.
