Svaneholms Slott
Sweden

SVANEHOLM ligger ett par km nordväst om Skurup och hör till Skånes märkligaste slottsanläggningar. Den mäktiga fyrlängade tegelborgen ligger vid den av bokskogar omgivna Svaneholmssjön. Borgen uppfördes 1530 av Mourids Jepsen Sparre på en holme i den dåvarande Svansjön. Den byggdes med slutna murar, skyttegluggar och branta tak med blinderingsprydda trappgavlar. De vanliga runda tornen saknas emellertid här och man byggde i stället en framspringande gavel på varje sida, varifrån man kunde beskjuta eventuella fiender. I slutet av 1600-talet lät Axel Gyllenstierna bygga om östra längan till fem våningars höjd, varigenom denna fått karaktär av ett barockslott i italiensk stil, med undantag för att tegelytorna bibehållits oputsade. Sedan dess har slottet inte genomgått några yttre förändringar, men vallgraven har fyllts igen under Rutger Macleans tid.

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.
