The small-amplitude Cepheid V1726 Cyg and two members of open cluster Platais 1 (Platais 1 star No. 1 (1921) and Platais 1 star No. 111 (1600)) were investigated, using high-resolution CCD spectra. The following results were obtained: 1) All objects have the same metallicities, close to that of the Sun (for V1726 Cyg weighted average [ Fe/H, for Platais 1 star No. 1 (1921) [ Fe/H); 2) values of Teff and for the B-stars are in excellent agreement with those determined from colour indices using a , ) calibration; 3) the elemental abundances indicate that V1726 Cyg is in the post first dredge-up stage with an age near , and is crossing the Cepheid instability strip for the third time. Mean values of K and permit us to refine its colour excess to , which for a distance of pc corresponds to . The Cepheid could therefore be pulsating in the fundamental tone, although pulsation in the first overtone is not excluded; 4) Platais 1 star No. 1 (1921) is a slowly rotating HgMn-star with a high helium content, while Platais 1 star No. 111 (1600) is a rapidly rotating main-sequence star with a helium content comparable to that of the Sun; 5) the age of the open cluster is estimated to be about yr.
