Enez Castle
Turkey

The small citiy of Enez is directly at the Turkish-Greek border. At ancient Greek times it was called Ainos and thanks to its habour it had become a rich town. Later Enez belonged to Pergamon and inherited by the Romans. Justinian, emperor of the East-Roman empire, built a fortress. Later, under Niccolo Gattilusio Enez belonged a rich Genuese family, which had been accepted by the Emperor in Byzanz in 1379. After the fall of Konstantinopel 1453 enez had been occupied by Sultan Mehmed II. personally. Today its a small and calm town with a little local tourism. Nearby are flat bays and salt ponds where you can see many different kinds of birds. In 2008 I could watch many Flamingos and a single black stork.

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.
