Sisak - remains of the old city walls
Croatia

What you see before you are the remains of defense walls of Siscia, capital of Roman province Pannonia Savia.

In 4th century BC the Celts arrive to this region. Celts are mixed with with Illyrian natives, and they establish a new settlement - Segestica.

In 35th BC, the young Octavian, who will later become the Roman emperor Octavian Augustus, after a month long siege with an army of 12000 men, conquers the Celtic-Illyrian city and establishes a Roman military camp - Siscia.

At the time of the Roman emperor Diocletian, the Roman province of Pannonia was divided into four regions, and Siscia becomes the capital of province Pannonia Savia.

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.
