Городской Мариупольский парк "Азовсталь".

ул. Гугеля, 12 наименование «Парк культуры и отдыха имени В.В. Лепорского».

Имя бывшего директора «Азовстали» Владимира Лепорского, который возглавлял комбинат с 1956 до 1981 гг., не случайно было выбрано для названия, ведь еще несколько лет назад этот парк был на балансе комбината «Азовсталь» и был назван в честь этого промышленного гиганта.

Напомним, что около 5 лет назад комбинат «Азовсталь» передал этот парк на баланс города, в связи с чем он потерял свое старое имя. Тогда же мариупольцы предложили назвать этот парк Успеновским, однако официального названия это место отдыха так и не получило. В этом году было принято решение облагородить парк в течение нескольких лет.

К слову, в Мариуполе уже давно зародилась традиция называть парки в честь экс-директоров промышленных предприятий. Так, несколько лет назад Лугопарк был переименован в парк им. Н. А. Гурова. С 1982 по 1990 гг. Николай Гуров был директором комбината им. Ильича. Он также является основателем данного парка.

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.
