Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara Mine
Sweden

Day 6: Under Kiruna — I booked a place for a guided tour of Kiruna's big iron ore mine, which I soon found out is "the largest and most modern iron ore mine in the world". Kiruna was founded in the 1890s to exploit two exceptionally rich seams in twin mountains, Luossavaara and Kiirunavaara, and the story of the company mining them, Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara AB (LKAB) is the story of Kiruna itself.

During August 2008 I spent 17 days driving around Sweden in the single-minded pursuit of one good 360-degree panorama per day, posting the results daily to the Panoramic Sweden blog.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
