The country's highest point, the Dzerzhinsky Hill, stands at 1,135 ft. (346m). Its lowest point is on the Neman River at 90 metres (295 ft)

And as for rivers, the Dnieper is the most significant. Others of importance include the Dvinar, Neman and Pripyat. Many streams and over 10,000 small lakes are scattered about.
