Fortress Oblun (214m) Northwest side
Montenegro
Grad-tvrdava, jugoistocno od lješkopoljskog sela Grbavci, na najnižoj od tri glavice istoimenog brda izmedu Morace i Maloga blata. Utvrdenje sa kiklopskim blokovima u temeljima staro je više hiljada godina. Zbog dominantnog položaja i mogucnosti kontrole znatnog dijela Skadarskog jezera i Zetske ravnice, odigrao je znacajnu ulogu u III Ilirsko-Rimskom ratu... U „Ljetopisu popa Dukljanina" navodi se da se dukljanski kralj Ðorde (unuk kralja Mihaila prvog dukljanskog-crnogorskog kralja, koji je stekao kraljevske insignije 1076 godine) polovinom XII vijeka utvrdio u kastelu Obolon. Vizantinci su ga opkolili, uhvatili i kao zatocenika poslali u Carigrad, de je i umro. Oblun ima ostatke dva dijela - "gornji" i "donji grad". U blizini su i nekolike ilirske mogile. Pravilan pravougaoni oblik sacuvanih ostataka utvrdenja, uprkos nepovoljnoj konfiguraciji terena, ukazuje da vjerovatno potice iz antickog, rimskog ili vizantijskog perioda. Dužina sacuvane severoistocne strane je oko 70 metara. Severozapadni i jugoistocni zid sacuvani su djelimicno, a jugozapadni zbog vertikalnih stijena vjerovatno nije ni postojao. Skoro u centru utvrdenja, na kamenitom platou, nalaze se ostaci jednobrodne crkve. Zanimljivo je da nema ostataka kula.

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.
