Monument of St. George the Victorious in the Park of Forged Figures
Ukraine

In 2011 there was another monument in the Park of Forged Figures. This attraction was donated to the city from the Georgian community "Rustaveli" in honor of the fact that Donetsk is one of those cities that have helped many nationalities, showing their hospitality.

George - this is a Christian saint, martyr, who, according to Greek legends, during the persecution of Christians in the III century in Palestine, declared himself a Christian before the Emperor Diocletian, after which he was brutally tortured 8 days (torture wheel bristling with knife and sword, throwing in quicklime, interrupting all the bones, put the hot iron boots, beaten with whips, allowed to drink water, mutnevshuyu mind). After all the torture, George miraculously healed after prayers. Next, was executed by beheading. In all the time seeing the influence of God, many people became Christians.

The most famous posthumous miracle - the killing lance snake, ravaged the land of the pagan king. It is a symbol of the victory of Christianity over paganism.

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.
