Orava Castle - Oravský Zámok.
Slovakia

The first written record of the Orava Castle goes to the 13th century. It ranks among the most significant monuments of castle architecture and belongs to one of the most frequently visited monuments in Slovakia. The Orava Castle towers 112 metres over the sea level while the village of Oravsky Podzamok is dominated magnificently by.

Zachovaly rozsiahly hrad sa tyci na strmom vapencovom brale priamo nad obcou vo vyske 112 m nad hladinou rieky Orava. Hrad je narodnou kulturnou pamiatkou. Prva pisomna zmienka pochadza z roku 1267, kedy bol kralovskym majetkom. Postupne menil majitelov. O dnesny vzhlad sa postarali Thurzovci, ktorych stavebna obnova hrad zaradila medzi vyznamne stavby renesancneho obdobia. V roku 1800 hrad vyhorel a bol velmi poskodeny. Coskoro vsak bolo postarane o jeho konzervaciu a obnovu, pricom Palffyovci (posledni majitelia) sa pokusili o ciastocnu romanticku upravu. Posledna a najvyznamnejsia komplexna obnova hradu sa uskutocnila v rokoch 1953 - 1968.

    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.
