Juozapinė Hill is a hill located near Vilnius, formerly regarded as the highest point in Lithuania. Its elevation is 292,7 meters (957 feet); its latitude and longitude are 54.4667/25.5667. The status of the highest elevation in Lithuania is now being attributed to Aukštojas Hill (293,84 meters).

Juozapinės kalnas




Juozapinės kalnas Medininkų aukštumos žemėlapyje

Juozap?nės k?lnas – kalva apie 23,5 km į pietryčius nuo Vilniaus, netoli Baltarusijos sienos (~4 km), apie 1 km į pietvakarius nuo Medininkų gyvenvietės. Medininkų aukštumos moreniniame masyve.

Kalno šlaitai lėkšti, išraižyti raguvų, šiaurėje šlaitas apaugęs mišku. Kalva susidariusi iš moreninio priemolio ir priesmėlio. Susidarė priešpaskutiniame ledynmetyje. Priklauso Juozapinės valstybiniam germorfologiniam draustiniui.

293,6 m virš jūros lygio Juozapinės kalva ilgai buvo laikoma aukščiausiu Lietuvos tašku. Bet 2004 m. Vilniaus Gedimino technikos universiteto specialistai nustatė, kad aukščiausias Lietuvos taškas yra netoliese esantis Aukštojas (293,84 m).

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
