Arc Struve

The Struve Arc is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. One of four in Ukraine.

The arc consists of 265 triangulation points, according to which measurements were made from 1816 to 1852, which made it possible to determine the exact size and shape of the Earth. The length of the Struve arc is 2820 km. It runs from north to south through the territory of ten European states: Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Russia ...

Geodetic Arc Struve is named after the head of the study, an outstanding astronomer, geodesist and mathematician Federic Georg Wilhelm Struve (Vasily Yakovlevich Struve).
