Purnuškės

 

Purnuškės is a village in Vilnius district municipality, 26 km north of Vilnius, about 10 km southeast of Paberžė. To the west of the village is the center of Europe. According to a calculation by French scientists from 1989, this is the center of Europe (Lithuanian Europos centras). Strictly speaking, the center is in the forest approx. 762 m south-southwest of the Europapark and 180 km below the surface of the earth. However, the calculation method allows this tolerance.
