The Struve Geodetic Arc is an ancient chain of 265 triangulation points located on the territory of 10 countries. The triangulation chain begins at the northernmost city in Europe - Hammerfest, then crosses Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia (2 points survived), Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus (19 points survived), Ukraine and Moldova.
Only 19 points from 31 points of Struve Arc on the territory of Belarus were found by surveyors of RUP "Belaerokosmogeodesiya" (nowadays State enterprise "Belgeodesiya"). These points are included in the State List of Historical and Cultural Values of Belarus and are protected by the state.
