It could be considered the highest mountain in Europe, notwithstanding that the Caucasus mountains are at the intersection of Europe and Asia, and it is the tenth most prominent peak in the world.

Elbrus has two summits, both of which are dormant volcanic domes. The taller west summit is 5,642 metresthe east summit is 5,621 metres (18,442 ft).
