Ethno village Sirogojno
Serbia

Situated 32 km from the town of Uzice and 24 km from the Zlatibor Mountain, Sirogojno village lies on the ideal altitude of 900 m. The village was first mentioned in the Turkish land register in 1476. In 1970, it became known by its hand-made sweaters. "Sirogojno fashion" gained popularity throughout the world: in Paris, Rome, London, Vienna, Brussels, Copenhagen, Tokyo, Moscow… "Sirogojno CO" today continues with the production of high-quality exclusive models sold at local and foreign markets under the "Sirogojno Style" brand name. The sweaters can be bought in the selling and exhibition hall "Sirogojno CO". An important cultural hub of the village is a building facilitating a library and a gallery, as well as the open-air Old Village museum, which makes Sirogojno village the only of this kind. The museum marks a special tourist destination, forming a part of a wider concept of Zlatibor tourism and recording an increasing number of visitors. A few restaurants and cafés are located in the very center of the village.

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.
