Elbrus

Elbrus is the highest peak of the Caucasus Mountains. It is a stratovolcano with two peaks: western and eastern. Elbrus is located on the border of the Kabardino-Balkar and Karachay-Cherkess Republics.

The volcano is located so that the eastern summit, with a height of 5,621 m, is located on the territory of Kabardino-Balkaria, and the western, 5,642 m, is already in Karachay-Cherkessia.

Due to the fact that the border between Europe and Asia is not precisely defined, Elbrus can be considered the highest mountain peak in Europe, having a height of 5,642 m. If this volcano is attributed to Asia, then the highest European peak will be Mount Blanc - 4,810 m.

Where is the volcano Elbrus in relation to Georgia? It is north of the Greater Caucasus Mountains. If you find a place on the political map where Kabardino-Balkaria and Karachay-Cherkessia are bordered by Georgia, then Elbrus will be located 10 km to the north relative to this point.
