Carev Most (Tsar's Bridge)

Carev Most is located on the way out of Nikšić, on the old road to Podgorica which passes through Pandurica.

Carev Most is one of the most beautiful bridges in Montenegro. It was constructed in 1896, while some sources cite 1894 as the year of its construction. Carev Most was the biggest construction project from that period. It was built with the support of the Russian Emperor Alexander III after whom the bridge was named. The plans for the construction of the bridge over Slivlje were developed by Josip Slade, at the request of Prince Nikola. This magnificent bridge was built of quarried stone, at a length of 269 meters, and over 13 meters high in the middle. The bridge was constructed on arches supported by 18 piers.

This is an overview of 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.
