Lake Visovac - Krka National Park - Croatia
Croatia
Im Mittellauf der Krka wurden deren Ufer im Gebiet des Nationalparks großflächig aufgeforstet. Zwischen Roški slap und Skradinski buk liegt inmitten des gleichnamigen Sees die Insel Visovac, die gleichzeitig zu den wichtigsten Natur- und Kulturschätzen der Republik Kroatien zählt. Auf Ihr befindet sich seit 1445 das Franziskanerkloster der barmherzigen Muttergottes und die Kirche der Visovacer Muttergottes. Das Kloster bildet mit der wunderschönen Landschaft der Visovacer Seen eine einmalige ambientale Einheit. Im Laufe der turbulenten Geschichte von Visovac war und blieb sie eine Insel des Friedens und des Gebets, während das Franziskanerkloster eine Festung der Geistigkeit und des Glaubens demonstriert. Das Kloster besitzt eine bedeutende archäologische Sammlung, eine Sammlung historischer Kirchenkleidung sowie eine reiche Bibliothek mit mehreren historischen Handschriften, wertvollen Büchern und Inkunabeln, unter anderem eine Ausgabe von Äsops Fabeln aus dem 15. Jahrhundert. Wegen der jahrhundertelangen Verehrung der Muttergottes wird Visovac auch Muttergottesinsel genannt. (Quelle: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationalpark_Krka )

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.
