As Lepterijin Županov and father constantly fought for possession, did not support their relationship. Lepterija decide one night to escape. It was her father so angry that he ordered his servants to destroy when found. When the posse arrived fugitives Lepteriju executed, and the Prefect of the deepest sorrow jumped vir Moravice. Even today, the famous picnic in a clearing near Sokobanja Lepterija called a vortex (now the beach) - Zupan. Second, some say more likely, the legend says that the name comes from the Greek Lepterija word freedom. Namely, Sokograd arose on the ruins of a Roman fortress, and then among the most slaves were Greeks, who called a nearby glade - Slobodiste.

However, it is better seen little izdalje clearly visible from where the silhouettes of the Mother of God with her wedding. Indentation in the rock has the shape of a mother with child, and according to tradition in that the rock is hid with Christ and the Virgin in her arms, fled before the Romans.

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.
