Petrovac Castle
Montenegro

Petrovac is a coastal town in Montenegro, within the Budva municipality.


Petrovac is located on the coast between Budva and Bar, where the old mountain road from Podgorica reaches the coast. It has a 600 metre long sandy beach and it is a popular tourist destination.

The history of Petrovac began in Roman times, when a couple of villas were built at Krš Medinski: a 4th century mosaic floor, remains of a villa and baths have been found behind St Ilija's church.Later, there was a Slav village. The village was first mentioned in the Chronicle of the Priest of Duklja. At the northern end of the bay is a 16th century Venetian fortress, Kastel Lastva, built to discourage pirates. The name, Petrovac, was given at the beginning of the 20th century after King Peter I Karađorđević.

In the bay are two islets (Katič and Sveta Nedjelja), one of which is topped by a small chapel, built in thanksgiving for a shipwrecked sailor's life.

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.
