Pałac Mielżyńskich w Poznaniu - klasycystyczny budynek, pierwszy realizujący w pełni założenia tego stylu w Poznaniu. Zajmuje posesję numer 91 przy Starym Rynku. W skromnej fasadzie uwagę zwracają proste pilastry, wysunięty gzyms i wysoka attyka zwieńczona herbem, który jest podtrzymywany przez dwa lwy. Pałac powstał w latach 1795-1798 w wyniku przebudowy zakupionej w 1772 przez Maksymiliana Mielżyńskiego kamienicy, jednak już w 1800 budynek ponownie przebudowano na kamienicę lokatorską. W 1806 swoją kwaterę umieścili tu Jan Henryk Dąbrowski i Józef Wybicki. Pałac został całkowicie zniszczony podczas walk w 1945. Odbudowano go w stylu klasycystycznym w latach 1954-1957 i przekazano wojewódzkiemu zarządowi PTTK, który ma w nim swoją siedzibę do dziś. Od tego czasu w pałacu znajduje się również Dom Turysty.

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.
