Church of Our Lady of the Rosary - Jablonove
Slovakia

Obec leží v Strážovských vrchoch v doline Hradnianskeho potoka. Východná časť chotára je v treťohorných zlepencových Súľovských skalách, zbytok tvoria druhohorné horniny. Nesúvislé lesy sú po obvode chotára. Obec sa spomína v r. 1268. Patrila rodu Maršovských. V r. 1598 mala 22 domov, 12 daňovníkov z toho 10 želiarov. Obyvatelia sa zaoberali poľnohosp. a pracovali v lesoch. Cez obec vedie jediná prístupová komunikácia do Súľova, teda i do Súľovských skál. Dominantou obce je kostol Ružencovej Panny Márie, posvätený v r. 1998. Medzi staršie pamiatky patrí murovaná neskoroklasicistická zvonica s ľudovou plastikou Panny Marie. Z rodákov obce v minulosti vynikol kňaz J. Nepomuk Daniš, člen Slovenského učeného tovarišstva. Obec je známa i svojim mužským speváckym zborom. Lom na ťažbu prírodného kameňa, popri ktorom sa vchádza do Súľovských skál je v prevádzke od r. 1935.

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.
