Rogalin - Palace Park #2
Poland

Rogalin [rɔˈɡalin] is a village in western Poland, situated on the Warta river. It lies approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) east of the town of Mosina, and 19 km (12 mi) south of the city of Poznan.

Rogalin is primarily famous for its 18th-century baroque palace of the Raczynski family, and the adjacent Raczynski Art Gallery, housing a permanent exhibition of Polish and international paintings (including Paul Delaroche and Claude Monet and the famous Jan Matejko's large-scale painting Joanna d'Arc, see a fragment below). The gallery was started by Edward Aleksander Raczynski. Rogalin is also known for its putatively 1000-year-old oak trees (Polish: Deby Rogalinskie) on the banks of the Warta. Much of the surrounding area forms a protected area known as Rogalin Landscape Park.

The last owner of the estate was Count Edward Bernard Raczynski, who in 1979–1986 was President of the Polish Republic in exile. His coffin is deposited in the Raczynski Mausoleum, under the historical chapel in Rogalin. In his testament, Count Raczyński bequeathed his family palace in Rogalin and his library to the Polish people. wikipedia

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.
