Klavreström är en ort och ett tidigare järnbruk i Uppvidinge kommun, Kronobergs län, Småland. Orten ingår i tätorten Norrhult-Klavreström. Järnbruket i Klavreström grundades år 1736 av löjtnanten Lars Silfversparre. Det ligger vid Mörrumsåns övre del mellan Enghultsjön och Norrsjön. Bruket i Klavreström och kringliggande järnbruk hade en likartad produktion. Av sjömalm framställdes tackjärn i masugnen. Tackjärnet kunde användas till gjutgods eller vidareförädlas till stångjärn i hammarsmedjan. En del av stångjärnet förädlades ytterligare på bruket. En del blev svartsmide i knipsmedjan och en del spik i spiksmedjan. I Klavreström tillverkades i första hand stångjärn men senare även kaminer, värmepannor, kokspisar, manglar och andra bruksföremål. Vid bruket byggdes förutom smedja, masugn och andra produktionsbyggnader även arbetarbostäder och en bruksherrgård. Redan vid 1800-talets början fanns omkring 50 personer boende vid bruket. År 1893 förvärvades bruket av kapten Johan Melcher Ekströmer (politiker) och övertogs 1905 sonen av Carl Ivar Ekströmer. Produktionen moderniserades och hölls igång till omkring 1970, då bruket i Carl Johan Ekströmers ägo lades ner. 1983-1985 inrättades ett bruksmuseum i det gamla stenmagasinet. Utställningen visar föremål från den tidigare produktionen. I vissa av brukets lokaler finns STF:s vandrarhem.

The resort is included in the urban area Norrhult-Klavreström. Ironworks in Klavreström was founded in 1736 by Lieutenant Lars Silfversparre. It is located at the upper part between Mörrumsåns Enghultsjön and North Sea. The mill in Klavreström and surrounding iron had a similar production. Of BOG-IRON ORE prepared pig iron in the blast furnace. The pig iron could be used to cast or processed into bar iron in the forge. A portion of bar iron were further processed at the mill. Some were black wrought in knipsmedjan and some nails in the nail forge. In Klavreström manufactured primarily iron rod but later stoves, furnaces, cooking stoves, roller and other appliances. The mill was built besides tank, furnace and other production buildings also workmen and a manor house. Already in the early 1800s there were about 50 people living at the mill. In 1893 the mill was acquired by Captain John Melcher Ekströmer (politicians) and was taken over in 1905 the son of Carl Ivar Ekströmer. Production was modernized and was started around 1970, when the practice of Carl Johan Ekströmers possession was closed. 1983-1985 established a mill museum in the old stone magazine. The exhibition presents objects from the historical production. In some of the mill's premises are STF hostels. Information from: http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klavrestr% C3% B6m

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.
