Digermulen - ferry to Store Molla
Norway
View from the east coast of the spectacular Raftsundet over the Raftsundet Alps, in the ferry port of Digermulen. At the end of the 19th Century, the small town of Digermulen was a popular tourist destination. It was regarded as the gateway to the natural beauty of Raftsundet and Trollfjord. During the summer months when the weather was fine, up to three boats daily were heading the site. Digermulen was one of the favorite places of Kaiser Wilhelm II, who on 21 July 1889, a year after his coronation, went here for the first time with the imperial flotilla. To commemorate his visit two memorial stones were erected on the top of the mountain the Emperor ascended. During World War II, the stones were demolished; in the late 1980s, they were rebuilt by the residents of Digermulen.Today, Digermulen has 330 inhabitants. Digermulen is located on the southwest corner of the east bank of Vesteråleninsel Hinnøya, on the coast of Raftsundet. The ferry to the Sore Molla island is about to leave. The panorama was taken about 11 PM.

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.
