In 1989, the scientists of the French National Geographic Institute determined the geographical centre of Europe to be in Lithuania, 26 km to the north of Vilnius. The Geographical Centre of Europe is marked with the composition of a prominent Lithuanian sculptor Gediminas Jokūbonis, intended to commemorate Lithuania joining the EU. The composition is a white granite column, the top of which is adorned in a crown of stars.
