    Hypothetical centre of Europe. Quite interesting and good opportunity for photos as usual. There are nice cafes and shops so worth a visit.  more »

    Polotsk-the ancient and beautiful city. It flows the river Dvina. Narrow streets, many different attractions. One of them is a sign of "the geographical center of Europe". I was wondering to stand in the center of Europe, make photo.
