(visited by Vladimir Chernorutsky)


08-Июня-2019 – По пути в Западную Европу логично было заглянуть на точки слияния в Белоруссии. И начал я с 54°N 26°E. Эта точка расположена в 70 метрах от дороги H6154, в 100 метрах от конфлюенции есть съезд на лесную дорогу. По ней я и прошёлся почти до цели.

Природа на точке совсем не похожа на описание 14-летней давности. Точка расположена на северной границе Ладзунского сельсовета Гродненской области. В посадке соснового леса, довольно плотного, свет сюда плохо проникает. Рядом небольшая полянка с люпинами. Почва песчаная.

Данные посещения:

  • Пробег от дома: 840 км
  • Время движения: 10 часов
  • Расстояние по прямой от парковки: 90 м
  • Время на точке (местное): 19.15
  • Высота: 184 м
  • Особенности пути: молодая посадка соснового леса, комары
  • Погода: солнечно, +23°C.

Далее я отправился на соседнюю точку, 54°N 25°E.


08-Jun-2019 – On the way to the Western Europe, it was reasonable to visit some confluences in Belarus. And I started with 54°N 26°E. This point is located 70 meters from the H6154 road, in 100 meters from the confluence there is an entrance to the forest road. I walked up almost to the goal along it.

The CP natural background is not at all like that described 14 years ago. The point is located on the northern border of the Ladzunskiy village council of the Grodno region. It is in the planting of a pine forest, rather dense (light penetrates poorly here), near a small clearing with lupines. The soil is sandy.

CP visit data:

  • Driving distance from home: 840 km
  • Driving time: 10 hours
  • Bee-line distance from the parking: 90 m
  • Local time at the CP: 19.15
  • Elevation: 184 m
  • Path conditions: young pine forest, gnats
  • Weather condition: sunny, +23°C

Then I set off to the next confluence: 54°N 25°E.

Attention: In December 1989 the area around the Confluence had a radioactive surface contamination from Caesium-137 of 37-185 kBq/m², the half-life of Cs-137 being 30 years. Thus the time of stay in this area should be kept as short as possible and appropriate measures should be taken by the visitors to protect themselves against any radioactive contamination.
