European Pole of Inaccessibility
Europe, of course, is not a continent so does not qualify for a “main” Pole. For that, you need to visit the Eurasian Pole of Inaccessibility. However, it is possible to calculate a Point of Inaccessibility for continental Europe using country border definitions as well as seas.
That point lies near to Gus-Khrustalny District, Vladimir Oblast in Russia in woodland.
The exact location of the European POI is determined to be at:
- Latitude: 55° 45.614′ N
- Longitude: 40° 39.172’ W
- Distance from sea/border: 515 miles
