The location of the Struvė Geodetic arc in Anykščiai district is on the Storiai hill. Storiai hills are a group of four hills, the height of the highest hill – 197 m above sea level.

They are arranged at each stage, distinguishing their descriptions, and more information is provided at the arrival site and at the hill and at the point of the triangulation chain.
