Krnacky Polomka 2010
Once upon a time the noble Comoros invitation came in Slovak mountains from the Austrian Tyrol woodcutters, who have brought in addition logging tools and wooden horned sleds, which are used for the removal of timber. The guy had them delivered to the meter of forest wood, which have had a thorough strength and skill. In summer, the hay used for removal of difficult terrain available. Were the children's sledge last generations. Entirely made of wood, no metal parts. Today, for the transport is not used, become suitable tools for folklor and sports competition.

Kedysi davno na pozvanie grofskej komory prisli k nam z rakuskeho Tirolska drevorubači, ktori si okrem drevorubačskeho naradia doniesli aj tieto sane, ktore použivali na zvažanie dreva. Na krnohach musel chlap stiahnuť meter dreva, na čo musel mat poriadnu silu a zručnosť. Boli aj sankami minulych detskych generacii. V lete sa využivali na sťahovanie sena z ťažko dostupnych terenov. Krnohy su pozemne vozidlo bez kolies, pohybujuce sa na drevenych plazoch. Cele su zhotovene z dreva, bez kovovych sučasti. Dnes sa krnohy na dopravu materialu použi vaju len ojedinele, zato sa vsak stali vhodnym naradim folklorno - sportovych podujati v ramci krnohovych pretekov.(Viď http://www.krne.sk)

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.
