Russia – Mount Elbrus

Mount Elbrus, Caucasus Mountains, Russia

Do you know, what’s the highest mountain in Europe? Well, it’s a bit tricky question. Depending, how you define the border between Europe and Asia, one can say Mont Blanc (Monte Bianco, 4808 m above sea level) or Mount Elbrus (5642 m above sea level).
Let’s say here, that Mount Elbrus is the highest mountain in Russia (Caucasus) and Europe; and Mont Blanc is the highest mountain in Western Europe and in the European Union. 🙂

Elbrus, as you see in today’s picture, has two summits; they are inactive volcano domes (5642 m and 5621 m).
