3D reconstruction of Charles Church in Plymouth
The building of Charles Church in Plymouth was
completed in 1657 and consecrated in 1665. It burnt out on the
night of 21st and 22 nd March 1941, the fire being caused by
some of the very many incendiary bombs that fell on the City
of Plymouth that night. The church was not rebuilt, but it is the
City‟s memorial to the civilians killed in the Blitz. Today, the
ruin is situated in the middle of one of the busiest roundabouts
This panorama was created in 3DstudioMax by Klaudiusz Wesolowski (http://www.restorer3d.com) on the basis of historical photographs (http://www.charles3d.info) and panoramic picture by Karol Kwiatek.

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.
