There is no truly satisfactory way to construct a list of European country high points. There are issues with the definition of the European continent, with which offshore islands are included or not, and with what constitutes a country or dependency. There are other flavors of this list on the site, but this one is included as a comprehensive "grab bag" of all peaks that could be considered country high points by most reasonable criteria.
This list starts out with the formally defined list of Nation and Dependency high points that are geographically located in Europe. To this are added the following:
- The actual highest points of Spain and Portugal, on islands out in the Atlantic.
- The mainland high points of Spain and Portugal, too.
- The highpoints of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, which although not independent countries, are often thought of that way and are often climbed as part of a European high point quest.
- The highest point in Turkey, and the higest point in the European section on Turkey.
- Yding Skovhøj in Denmark, which is a few centimeters higher than Møllehøj but is officially disqualified due to its status as an ancient burial mound.
- The entire Caucasus region high points.
- For Italy, both Mont Blanc, and the minor sub-peak of Mont Blanc de Courmayeur, which the French (not the Italians) feel is the highest point on their common border.
Even though many people would find this list to be too extensive, I don't think anyone would doubt your claim to have finished the Europe High Points if you climbed all these peaks!

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch.
It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to www.attrinity.com
play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction.
The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster
addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
