Discover The geographical centre of Europe Lithuania

Indeed it is! Europe's geographical centre is located in Lithuania: defined by an equal distance between the north, south, east and west ends of the European continent. Given that not all the European countries belong to the European Union, it is normal that Europe's geographical centre (as a continent) differs from its political centre (located in Germany, in Niedermittlauer Heiligenkopf, in the Land (state) of Hesse). If you want to go to the geographical centre of Europe, located in Purnuskiu, you will need to drive for half an hour from Vilnius. On site, there is a commemorative landmark, as well as a small museum.
