Heaven stone gate

Natural Stone Bridges are one of natures magnificent formations and are regarded as natural treasures.

Out of 43 known natural stone bridges in the world 13 are located in small 100x100Km part of Eastern Serbia.

In my humble opinion the most beautiful of these complexes is Heaven stone gate complex.

It is located in River Zamna canyon at the place where gorges of Medvedja reka(bear river) and Zamna combine into one. Near village of Stubik. By official measures this formation is still not a stone bridge but a cave with 3 openings in the ceiling(in few thousand years it will probably form a true bridge). This location is not accessible by car so if u plan to visit this one u will need precise instructions from locals on how to find "Zlatko's house" and the road that leads to Zamna canyon.

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.
