The highest point of Belarus land was considered to be Dzerjinskaya Mountain, 345 meters high.  Well, it can’t be compared with such mountains as, for example, the Karpati or the Caucasus but still there can be found about 25-30 representatives of mountain flora, and almost all of them are rare species, included in the Red book of the Republic of Belarus. more info
