Elbrus (5,642mt) Russia.

Mount Elbrus is a 5,642mt (18,510ft) dormant volcano located in the western Caucasus mountain range, in Russia. First climbed in 1874, it is considered the highest peak in the larger Europe.

Its name is derived from that of Hara Berezaiti, a legendary mountain in Iranian mythology. Greek mythology states that here Zeus had chained Prometheus, the Titan who had stolen fire from the gods and given it to ancient man – likely a reference to historic volcanic activity.
