One of the oldest monasteries Podillian, chronicles of the XVI century is not otherwise referred to as "very old" - this was not the first phrase that I read about the Basilian monastery near Transfiguration Terebovli cozy. 

Next is a matter of technique - in the sense that technology is in the form of car production in 1980 Zhiguli year dovezla us cool in the Carpathian mountain forest paths (the way the path does not lead) to the old walls under the supervision of aging military radar. 

What zatayilysya waiting for a detailed description of the road? I will confine and only about: picturesque ruins of the monastery located about three kilometers south of the county, in the mountain village near the suburb Terebovli Pidhora in Gnizna and Seret rivers. Placement influenced the name of the object tourist attention: it is called Pidhoryanskym convention, the Terebovlja and sometimes even something Semenivs'kyi (Semeniv village situated nearby, but Pidhora still closer). Although the last name and may be explained in another way: Semen has long belonged to the local monks.

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.
