St Pantaleon Chapel and a memorial fountain of Jugovich brothers
The fountain in Tronosa is not only a fountain. It is an integral part of the chapel of the great martyr St Pantaleon, whose interior was painted with icons of Saints. There is a mosaic on the frontal part of the chapel, above the pipe taps, the work of Italian masters, which represents Jugovic family before going to Battle of Kosovo.
In addition to several panels that provide important data, one should read a few times. In fact, few people are able to say by hart the list of names of all the brothers Jugovic. Except Bosko and Damnjan, the names of others are rarely found in school and other books. The answer can be found on the panel just above the tap. The slogan says as follows: "This endowment of Jug-Bogdan and his nine sons: Vojin, Miljko, Marko, Ljubodrag, Radmilo, Bosko, Stojan, Veselin and Vlasko-Damnjan, from 1388 was rebuilt during the Archimandrite Methodius in 1721; later reconstruction was conducted by Mladen Isakovic, merchant from village Lesnica in 1894; and the latest reconstruction was made under supervision of the head monk of Tronosa of that time in 1935".

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.
