The Belarus – Lithuania – Poland tripoint is south of the Polish village of Stanowisko and can be approached from either Poland or Lithuania. The Mara river which marks the border curves at this point with a portion of Lithuania protruding towards the other 2 countries. This allows for some interesting angles when photographing. When I visited it appeared as if river bank consolidation had occurred and the BY and PL #1789 border markers as observed by Hugh Wallis and Jan Krogh (2007) and Jannis Deeleman (2015) were not there.
The tripoint is remote but it is possible to drive along rough forest tracks to within 1 km of the tripoint, coming initially to the Belarus – Poland border marked by BM’s 1788 before walking down to the tripoint proper. That part of the border is marked by a similar marker to LTPLRU (pre 2010). A Polish border enthusiast informs me that this monument marks the old Soviet Polish border.
