Cape Flissingsky (Russian: Мыс Флиссингский; Mys Flissinski) on Northern Island, Novaya Zemlya, Russia. Its most prominent feature is that it is considered the easternmost point of Europe, including islands.
The cape is a few km from the shelter that Barents and his crew built to overwinter from 1596-97, and he ultimately died the next year. A memorial cross in his honor is erected in the same area.
