The hottest place in Europe has been named

The city of Syracuse, located on the Sicilian island, has become the hottest place in Europe on record, according to the World Meteorological Organization.

In this city, on August 11, 2021, the air temperature reached +48.8 degrees Celsius.

This record was officially recognized after a three-year audit, during which experts were convinced of the reliability of the data collected by the local weather station.

Previously, Athens was considered the hottest city in Europe, where +48 degrees was recorded on July 10, 1977. However, this information has not yet been independently assessed.
