Central Franz Josef Land
This view shows the central part of Franz Josef Land from the east with Wiener Neustadt Island in the foreground and Ziegler Island and Salisbury Island behind. Wiener Neustadt Island as well as many of the other islands got their names from an Austrian Expedition that first charted the islands in 1873. Franz Josef Land is located at the northeast end of Europe and the islands are mostly covered by glaciers.
